Thank You Nitin Pai... Your answer was really useful and you have got me out of a quick sand situation..I would be taking up the EJB certification nnext week, after which I'd follow your guidelines for SCDJWS.
I am preparing for SCDJWS but not able to find a good book for it.
My experience is that in most of the web services books including the Suns tutorial none of the examples or source code run as expected and adds to more confusion.I just dont want to pass the exam for the sake of getting one more certification.
I used Kathy Sierra and Bert Book for SCJP 5 and it really helped me.Is there any book like that in the market for SCDJWS?
Can anybody help?
Thanks and Regards,<br /> <br />Hrushikesh<br />SCJP 1.5
I would like to wait a little bit longer for next update. JAX-RPC is considered legacy API now.

Only in organizations that already use Java EE 5 or Axis 2 in their architecture. Many are still stuck in J2EE 1.4 (or prior) or still use Axis 1.x and the like.
Even if your are lucky enough to work in a progressive environment - some of your trade partners may not and you may have to help to overcome the limitations of their "legacy environment". "The problem is on your end" doesn't encourage good business relationships...
basically said that it is likely to be around the first of the year and that many other exams need exams need updating first.
So there is no firm date and the SCDJWS update has a fairly low priority - for example the SCEA is in much more desperate need of an update. And even once the SCDJWS is updated it will be probably be initially more difficult to prepare for it than it is already to prepare for the current version.
The true value of the exam isn't in the (legacy) Java API and configuration sections. It is in the non-Java sections: XML, XML Schema, SOAP, WSDL, web services security, web services design, WS-I Basic interoperability. This will give you enough of a background to understand what is currently going on in the WS-* space.
The fact is that web services have little to do with Java - Java just happens to be one of the options that you have when you are implementing one. The real web services issues have little to do with Java.
I'm bit confused regarding the RMH book. The snapshot that you have given on "Study material and resources" link is different from what I've searched on the net. I searched for "J2EE webservices, by Richard Monson Haefel" and have found the following book(please visit this link):
Hi Lalit, The book that yoo are referring is in deed the correct book and is the Indian reprint(Pearson Edition) of the original version. As you could see the yellow bar reading "Low Price Edition - LPE". The rate is also in INR
