This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
It's good to have you here. I have officially started preparing for SCDJWS now, too (I am assuming I will get a pass for my SCEA). As always I have a million things on at work but I look forward to being able to share ideas with another contributer.
Good luck with your prep!
SCJP, SCWCD, SCBCD, almost SCEA<br />... and a real developer too ;)

Gee... thanks for the welcome guys. I already feel warm and fuzzy.
I started reading RMH book at a local bookstore last weekend and I am going to complete it this weekend. Honestly I skimmed through some chapters( DOM/SAX/JAXP etc) since I know them comfortably well. Once I complete the RMH book I am going to prepare just for the test - ie., going through notes linked from the links page. I have done some WS stuff using Axis so it is not all new turf for me. But frankly things have changed since then( and continue to change every day ) so there's a lot to catchup.
I passed SCEA last month and am moving on to SCDJWS. This week, I'm attending SD Expo in Santa Clara. Everyone is talking about WS/SOA/SOAP. It's amazing that for the first time ever major vendors are agreeing on a set of specifications. It's clear that J2EE architects will soon have to reasonably know .NET as well... You got to love a change in this industry to survive.
