I am going to prepare for web services certification version 5. Guys, Could you help in choosing the books? I found RMH book is popular in this forum, but I guess that is old (2003 edition with j2ee1.4) and would not cover the latest required SCDJWS/OCPJWSD Version 5 topics.
Certified mates, please provide useful books for understanding web services and also exam point of view.
It contains many books/notes/specifications which are required for SCDJWS. You're in the beginning of the long journey

Thanks for the prompt reply!
But I think the web page you mentioned "SCDJWS Links Page" is not the updated one. Could you please let me know 1-2 good books on web services j2ee version 5.
How about older RMH (2003 edition) book for version 5 exam and also I came thru other book "Java Web services UP and Running - Oreilly", any idea about this book?

The page might not be completely up to date, because not many books are published on Web Services topic. Moreover, SCDJWS does not have a study guide, like SCJP - K&B book.
Good news: everyone can edit that page, you can contribute if you find some good book.
RMH book is still good for XML/namespaces/Schema/WS-I BP understanding.
Besides the Links Page, you can use search function on this forum, and read experience from the people who passed the test.
I am planning to start preparing or the Java Web services 6 exam. I have the link to your study material and i am plannng to read Java Web services - Up and Running. Is ther any other book you can recommend which might be helpful. Also, Sorry for this stupid question but will it be helpful to start reading your material first and then the Java Web services - Up and Running book or the other way around? I just want to make sure that i start it right.
