I passed this exam with 76% today, although the score is not very high, I do gain a lot of knowledge from this exam. I got understanding J2EE architecture further and deeper from this exam! Maybe some knowledge is out of date like JAX-RPC, I do think it is still worth to take this exam! Studing new stuff is easy starting from here...
Here, I want to thank MZ and www.xyzws.com! Especially xyzws, its study guide and mock exam are really excellent. Unbelievably, they are free!
SUN Certified Business Component Developer Java EE Platform 5 (2008)<br />SUN Certified Developer for Java Web Services (2007)<br />IBM WebSphere Portal V5.1 Application Development (2006)<br />SUN Certified Web Component Developer (2001)<br />SUN Certified Java 2 Programmer (2001)
Did questions on API's like SAAJ and other stuff carry any weight?
My score report as following: 1.XML Web Service Standards 80% 2.SOAP 1.1 Web Service Standards 66% 3.Describing and Publishing(WSDL and UDDI) 85% 4.JAX-RPC 85% 5.SOAP and XML Processing APIs(JAXP,JAXB,and SAAJ) 87% 6.JAXR 50% 7.J2EE Web Services 57% 8.Security 75% 9.Developing Web Services 83% 10.General Design and Archiecture 100% 11.Endpoint Design and Architecture 60%
The number of API questions is medium. Serval questions are about JAXB. Some of API questions are about logical steps and some of API questions are very detailed, so we have to understand the meaning of each API and their methods.
Some questions are about XML schema. We can learn XML schema from MZ quide and xyzws guide.
General understanding on every part is also important because some questions are about general understanding.
So we have to understand every part from detail to general, including the blueprint of whole J2EE web services.
