I'm busy preparing for SCBCD 5.0.I am almost ready now except for one objective :
Identify correct and incorrect statements or examples about implementing a session bean as a web service endpoint, including rules for writing a web service endpoint interface and use of the @WebService and @WebMethod annotations.
Chapter 15 of EJb in Action(Web Service) assumes that the reader is already familiar with Web Services but luckily
I already recently purchased Martin Kalin's "Java Web Services Up and Running"... Up until which point in this book would you say that I need to study to get the necessary background knowledge?
From the exam perspective the content given in the mentioned chapter would suffice. As per my experience the know-how of the webservices related annotation available in the EJB 3 specs. is what is required to know.
for e.g if you do not annotate any of the SLSB method with @WebMethod then would they be exposed as webservices.
Of course studying the webservices in greater depth will be advantageous as you already have the book in possesion. But from exam perspective I guess brief overview would be good enough.
If you have purchased in pratice exam software the SLSB as webservice related notes in there will be helpful.
