This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
There are lots of other differences, for example in JAX-WS the handler chains changed. There were JAX-RPC handlers, now there are Protocol and Logical handlers. The change in name was justified ...
The beta objectives don't mention JAX-RPC at all - so why is this important? If your are worried about RMH you should always check the appropriate specifications first to see if the RMH material is still relevant. [ November 18, 2008: Message edited by: Peer Reynders ]

Can you read Victor's review about the exam :
There was questions about migration from JAX-RPC to JAX-WS and differences between them, but this is not in the objectives!
I hope these things don't come but still who knows ?

I see. Just a general thought. The SCDJWS was always more about breadth rather than depth (compared to the other programming/API certifications) because there is so much to cover. I'm all for knowing the details because it makes it easier to understand how things fit together, however you can't trade depth for breadth in this preparation - lack of breadth is going to affect your results.
So given Victor's remark I would look for general things - like that you cannot reuse the handlers, which deployment files are different, that RPC/encoded isn't supported, etc. But that's just my opinion.
