Hi All,

I am new to the Web Service. Which is the best server and API to use for WebService SCDJWS.

Tomcat , AXIS

I knew WSAD and BEA will perform certain task on behalf of you. Which may not be suitable for practice to take test. And is it possible to implement both kinds of End point (JSE and EJB end point) with Tomcat and AXIS.

Correct and guide me if I am missing any thing here.

I think you should use Sun's Application Server (v8.2)
, thats what I'm using anyway - from link in Sun's tutorial - although in theory anything that conforms to the J2EE 1.4 way of doing things should be OK

Thanks! michael

Also do you suggest, to use Net Beans IDE or any other for Practice?

Tomcat and Axis are a good combination, particularly if you already know Tomcat (obviously). Keeps the amount of additional stuff to learn to a minimum. Tomcat does not support EJBs, though, but it does support JAX-WS.

In order to learn WS I'd advise not to use any IDE. They simplify things up the point that it's easy to only see the big picture, but not what's going on behind the scenes (which is really what the exam is about).
I agree. Here's the link:
