If you do not have any experience with XML, I would recommend starting with XML. A good understanding of XML and XML schema is essential for understanding web services.
Do take a look at the links here for additional recommendations: http://faq.javaranch.com/java/ScdjwsLinks Best wishes!
I am working in a software firm(recently joined). I was asked to learn about java web services.
I dont know where to start or what java web services is. Can you please help me
what does java webservices include(what various technologies)
what is the order that i should study these various technologies
Hello, I suggest this material in the order it's listed
- XML/XSD specifications (rather in depth)
- MZ Study Guide and/or Ivan A Krizsan Study Guide
- WS-I BP 1.1 specification (must know it like if your life depends on it ;))
- WSDL/SOAP specifications
- MZ mock exams
- (bit of overkill) Sun free and non-free mock exams
NOTE: while SCDJWS 5.0 objectives specify SOAP 1.2 and WSDL 2.0 specification versions, the exam questions are still based on the SOAP 1.1 specification and WSDL 1.1 specification, so these chapters of RMH book are still good for SCDJWS 5.0.
