Guys,

How does this test compare with Web Services exam from sun. I mean when I prepare for web services, I'm first required to know about xml concepts, so I'd be better off preparing for web services exam rather than Test 255. Am I right guys or is there any subtle difference that I'm missing out. Please help guys!

Hi Jothi Shankar Kumar !

IBM Test 255 has noting common with SCDJWS. It's not correct to compare these two.

Please look at objectives of IBM test:

IBM 000-255 is *much* *easier* than SCDJWS.
