I am also interested in this topic. I wish to persue SCDJWS 5 and whish to setup up development environment.
I have also purchased SOA Using Java Web Services.
I am familar with Eclipse and JBoss - would these be adequte for development? What else would I need?

I would suggest GlassFish as the server; it includes everything needed for the exam. I'd also suggest not to use an IDE -at least not their web service features-, because those abstract away the details that you will need to know for the exam. Using an IDE to write and compile code is fine.
