Hi All,

I have worked with Web Service for past 6 months .
Worked with existing JAX-RPC webservice (built before me joining the project) which talks with .NET client . It is a simple Web service with no security or other aspects . What kind of interview questions I can expect ?

I have read about JAX-WS . So what can be said about JAX-WS advantages over JAX-RPC to a naive Web service developer ?

Thanks.

Here is a link that gives you a quick difference.

http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/library/ws-tip-jaxwsrpc.html

I went through it a while back. I have not worked extensively with web services but I guess you could expect questions on SOAP; what terms like UDDI, WSDL, mean; what role XML plays; what APIs are available for web service communication with or without attachments; security; XML basics; what support application servers provide to develop web services; how a servlet or ejb can be turned into a web service.

That would pretty much be my exposure. I ll let some one with more experience to add to this list, since I have never designed a full fledged web service. Good luck

Learn top-down (i.e contract first) vs bottom-up approach.Pros and cons of each approach. Contract-first is the preferred approach.


What is SOA?, Performance Tips, WSDL, XSDs, UDDI, Handlers, SOAP structure, etc.
