Passed SCDJWS5 exam today.

Hi Ranchers

I've cleared SCDJWS5 exam today morning with 79%. I’ve been preparing for this exam since more than 4 months there were 65 question & 150 minutes, and I answered 51 questions correct.
Most of the questions were from SOAP, JAX-WS, Security, WSDL, UDDI & WSI sections where the security related questions were toughest for me among all I got only 40% on this Section.

Following are some points which I observe from my exam questions for the peoples who wish to attempt this exam in future.

  • Remember the communication mode supported by JAX-WS and JAX-WS support for data bindings.
  • The difference of document-literal & rpc-literal.
  • You have to choose the answer carefully of such questions where you asked what can EJB-based Endpoint & Servlet-based Endpoint can access, like EJB endpoints can take advantage of container managed transactions.
  • Thoroughly take inside look on xml schemas to define arrays and java primitives types.
  • Check the validation-of-schema first if the xml schema provided in question.
  • Remember the steps to establish connection with a UDDI registry using JAXR client.
  • Svcutil.exe is a utility if DotNet to generate proxies of framework similar like wsimport in java.
  • Take a thorough look on SOA+UDDI advantages such as:
  • -UDDI provides location where services can be dynamically discovered.
    -Remember SOA is only a way to design a system and Web service is possible implementation, I’ve got two questions related to SOA.
  • Remember if the operation is in-only then it cannot send a SOAP fault back to the sender.
  • I’ve got 2 questions on interaction layer; check the benefits of interaction layer what they are appropriate for?
  • Check the scenario when you want to switch your web service from synchronous Web service interaction to an asynchronous.
  • I got one question to choose either SOAP Web Service or RestFull your concept should clear on “what is the appropriate usage in certain situation?”
  • Check the Syntax of portType element for request/response or request -only operation in WSDL.
  • You should able to decide between java-to-wsdl and wsdl-to-java approach appropriate for certain scenario.
  • I got a question on the JAXB data binding steps/process (which I think made wrong )
  • And again I forgot SAAJ extends DOM API not SAX API and made one question wrong on it *sigh*.
  • I’ve got one question on each of topic(JAXP, StAX, SAAJ & SAX).
  • Try to run each code example given into Ivan’s notes specially regarding security.
  • There are great step by step code examples in “Java Web services up & running” book give a to each of them yourself.


  • Furthermore, I had used RMH & Java web services up & running book and always use to open Ivan’s notes pdf side by side when studying those books. It’s very easy to find the each API specification links in this PDF it’s a great resource for preparation.

    Moreover,
    Lastly I would like to thanks all the ranchers for the helping me throughout my journey to SCDJWS, especially to Ivan for such a great free pdf.



    Best Regards

    First of all congratulations on this accomplishment .

    Secondly, I have been planning to take up webservices test (though planning for couple of years :cry but I wonder if RMH has written a book for SCDJWS 5.0. I checked amazon, but it is for 1.4. I'm sure we could benefit from this book, specially for those common unchanged topics, but still wonder if any on has come acrossed the book for 5.0 version.

    Yes, I guess it was written only for 1.4 version but still the chapters written on SOAP, WSDL, XML & etc are quite good to understand the basics.

    Hi Minhaj Mehmood

    Congratulations on your approval !
    I have noticed that the content for this certification is quite extensive...and I started to study one month and would only be approved....
    Based on your experience, what would be the most important exam topics that I should give more attention so I can pass with a regular note ? I mean is that I'd like to study only enough to be approved....
    Or would be easier you cite those topics that don't need much study?
    Regards.

  • Hi Minjaj,

    Could you please elaborate on syntax of portType for request/response or request-only operation? Do you mean, if we use both input and output for request-only. Could you be more specific on this ? Also, what did you mean by communication mode supported by JAX-WS.
