Hi Every one,

I'm preparing the Part 1 exam of SCEA 5, and working these days on WebServices, my question if for those had pass the part 1 exam or know which section is covered for webservice in the exam.
Do we have to know and understand SOAP and how to Develop WebServces using SOAP ? or just to know the Java API for XML Processing (JAXP) and Java API for XML Registries (JAXR) , and Java Architecture for XML Binding (JAXB) etc ?
Which section are included in the exam for webservices ?
Any further details on what is included for Webservices in PArt 1 and what's the API that I have to focus more, will be much appreciated !

Thanks in advance for any Help

You will have to know what each XML or Web Service framework in Java does (at a high level).

You will also need to compare the advantages/disadvantages of using Web Services over other alternatives (RMI, JCA, etc).

Try typing web service in IBM developerworks. There's a lot of useful stuff there.

I'll let you know also through this forum once I am able to update my SCEA Part I study links/resources for SCEA 5.

All the best.

SCJP 1.2 (89%), SCWCD 1.3 (94%), IBM 486 (90%), SCJA Beta (96%), SCEA (91% / 77%), SCEA 5 P1 (77%), SCBCD 5 (85%)

Thank you very mush Paul for your prompt response
For the source that I�m using to study the web services, I do have a book that was recommended by SUN which is :
Developing Java Web Services � Architecting and Developing Secure Web Services Using Java
Developing Java Web Services

I found it very good but was wondering if I have to go over all chapters in that book including to know SOAP deeply, security in web services etc ..
Please le me know when you update your SCEA part I study , it�ll be really helpful for my study for this exam

Thank you very much and waiting to hear from you soon
Kind regards,

I have the same question as Rania asked.
I think most of us have some experience with these technologies, but haven't had involvement in others. So there are some areas which we are new in. What is your recommendation for studying those topics...such as EJB3 persistence API, Web services security, etc., Is it better to browse internet and read white papers and short tutorials on those topics or read the first chapters of related books?
What about part II and III of SCEA 5 (all I am asking is about SCEA 5)

Does in-depth knowledge of those technologies come useful in part 2, 3? Or just knowledge of UML and Patterns?

I agree. Here's the link:
