Some clarification on the versions of WSDL, SOAP, JAX-WS for SCDJWS

Hello All,

Could some one throw some light on the versions of following topics covered under SCDJWS. I read in the FAQS that officially the test is on SOAP1.2, but there are instances where questions are based on SOAP 1.1.

Also, there are several versions of JAX-WS, WSDL available, so could you please confirm me on these versions.

SOAP 1.1 and SOAP 1.2
WSDL 1.1
BP 1.1
JAX-WS 2.0

I see WSDL 1.2 and 2.0 being available and similarly JAX-WS 2.1 being referred in Ivan's notes. So I'm getting confused.



Thanks & Regards, Ravi C.Kota

Hi!
Well, I must admit that I was confused too, at the time of writing the notes.
I still am not entirely clear about the answers to your questions. I even tried to contact Sun back then, but to no avail.
When preparing for the certification, I did look at WSDL 2, but there were no questions on WSDL 2 on MY test.
Very strong emphasis on it being my test - this is the only test I have seen, so I cannot make any guarantees.
For the others, I would advice as follows:
- SOAP: Look at both versions.
- BasicProfie: I think I investigated this and the result was that I felt that BP 1.1 is a superset of BP 1.0 and thus it is sufficient to look at BP 1.1.
- WSDL: WSDL 2.0 contains some quite interesting things, so I'd say having a look is worth the effort, even though the emphasis seems to be on WSDL 1.1.
- JAX-WS: Go for the latest version.

Again, to make sure everyone are entirely clear: These advice are based on my experiences and what I have read here at JavaRanch. I cannot make any guarantees whatsoever that my advice are correct or useful.
Best wishes!
