SCDJWS 5 (310-230) Cleared

Hi all,
Yesterday I took this SCDJWS 5 (310-230) exam and I got around 70% (45 questions correct /65).Most of the questions are related to design architecture and theory part . Only few questions (may be 2 or 3) had code snippets, related to creation of SOAP and SAX processor. I didn’t find a single code snippet for JAX WS(thousands of annotations ),XSLT,JAXB,DOM,JAXP,JAXR,REST ..Check out interoperability issues when we integrating Java Web service with WCF.

I would like to thank this Forum for the precious information I got from it as well as to IVAN (who shared his reference material guide) , Sang Shin(Java Passion) and Mikalai Zaikin ..

How long did you prepare for this exam?
Almost 2-3 months. I have tried each and every topic with examples (from creation of xml schema... to final WSIT integration) .

Pass mark for 310 -230 exam?
42 %

Material which I have used?
I am newbie to this web service. So I have started from level zero.

I started from here , it’s a wonderful site which have PPT for all the materials as well as it has home work for each course. Once I completed the above stuffs, I gone through Ivans guide (An excellent reference material).

Few More Study materials:

IVANS Guide : (Thanks a ton)

Basic Profile 1.1 : (Imp) (please study this once you have confident about Xml Schema, SOAP, WSDL)..

Document Style Versus Procedure Style:

WSDL 2.0 : (Thanks to Mikalai Zaikin)

WSIT: (Good flow diagrams as well as screen shots which will be helpful to stimulate the applications)

JAX WS Versus JAX RPC: (part 1-5) 1)

JAX WS Exception :,r=1.1/jax-rpc/www/jax-ws/jax-ws-20-pfd/api/javax/xml/ws/soap/SOAPFaultException.html

All the best

Hi Stefan Taranu ,

Please check this site , they have mentioned 68% is the pass mark for 310 -230 exam.They didn't update the site and if you score more than 42 % then you have passed the 310 -230 exam. So passing mark is not 68 % ,its 42 % ..

Hi all,
Thanks for your wishes.

Now i am in dilemma ,should i need to take SCMAD or SCEA.
*For SCEA ,minimum it requires 4-5 years experience.I am having only 2 years experience in Java/J2EE domain.So am I eligible for this SCEA Certification.
.*SCMAD Version 1.0 ,its very old one .There is no update for last 5 years .

Please give your valuable suggestions,it would be very helpful for me. Thanks in advance.

If you could pass SCDJWS, I believe you'll not have any problem with SCEA.
For SCMAD, if you don't work with Java ME, I think it's not necessary.

Hello Anbu Vignesh,
In your post you said you used JAX WS Versus JAX RPC: (part 1-5) 1)

I was wondering how important RPC is to this exam as on the Sun site under the Exam obectives ( I did not find any reference to RPC.

Many Thanks

Hi Meherdad ,
Its good to know about the difference between JAX-RPC and JAX-WS , rather I can say JAX-RPC next version is JAX-WS. Its better to know about JAX-RPC since JAX-WS has been derived from JAX-RPC.
I agree. Here's the link:
