I passed the exam -- scored 62%. The exam was long and challenging. I was surprised to see so many JAXR related questions – probably 10 or more? But anyway, I am happy to the final result.

In my preparation, I mainly stick on the Study Notes from Ivan A. Krizsam. Thank you very much, Ivan. Another great resource is SOA.Using.Java.Web.Services from Mark D. Hansen. It is deep and to the point.

As always, many thanks to the ranchers!

Congratulations!!

Quick question: were any API related questions asked? Concerning JAXB, SAAJ, JAXP, JAX-WS etc.?

Take care - LX

Thanks. I do remember there was API specific question, it did not ask the syntax though. It questions the semantic of the API.

Does that mean a sample question would be what does the SAXParser wrap (e.g. SAXReader) and which Handlers does it use (e.g. ContentHanlder etc.) - in contrast to API questions that are asked with the SCWCD like return types, signatures etc...?

It seems as if the SCDJWS is very different to other exams (like the SCJP or SCWCD) - I remember those going into great detail on APIs signatures etc.

Is it save to assume that studying whole interfaces (e.g. SAXReader & what not) is not necessarily required to pass?

I agree with you on the SAXParser example. It is the kind of semantic questions I expected.

After all, there is only a small fraction of questions regarding to these APIs, so I don't think it is worth to memorize the APIs in detail.
