Oracle Certified Expert Java EE 6 Web Services Developer or OCPJWSD EE 5?

Hey,

i am interested to do the Web Services Developer Exam. I have completed already SCJP 1.6 and SCWCD Java EE 5 and OCPJBCD Java EE 5. i am not sure which to go for now the updated version EE 6 or to do the existing version EE 5 for OCPJWSD.

i would like to know the variations in the exams and the objectives. the better option now would be to naturally go for EE 6 as its updated edition but just in case i'd like to know.

and also i am from India so i would like to know if the EE 6 exam is available in india. because as per oracle website it says only EE 5 but prometric offers EE 6 also.

thanks for the infomation and any other info about the available books for the exam would be much appreciated. Thanks a lot guys..

Happy Programming. .!!

In your job, you will need to know both.

If the version 6 is available in your area, and there are enough study materials, I would go for it instead of the 5, 'then', study what are in JEE Web Service 6, that are not in Web Service 5. That way, you get both worlds.

Hello Praveenram,

SCDJWS 5 exam is older and has clearly defined objectives, many feedbacks and more study materails (like Study Notes, Quizzes).

OCE WSD 6 exam is super new, it does not have "traditional" objectives, only high-level "topics", almost no feedbacks.

More you can read here: http://www.coderanch.com/how-to/java/ScdjwsLinks

Regarding OCE WSD 6 availability in India, I can suggest:
1) Goto 2test.com
2) Select India as your country
3) Try to schedule CX-310-232
If it allows, then you are fine.

Best regards,
MZ

Looking at the pages for the JEE 5 and 6 Web Service Developer pages from Oracle, there seem to be a big difference between the topic coverage for both exams.

Although, I would have love to take the more updated version of the exam, but I would love to get back to some fine details I must have skipped. I have been using java web service (mostly using jax-ws and jaxb) for over two years.

The most recent version of the exam seems to focus only on the aging soap architecture. One would expect the latest to be more comprehensive.

Does anyone really know why oracle will choose this route? I guess I am really going for the older version..*still confused though*

Praveenram,

As many times was said, there is no a single book (guide) covering all objectives. Refer the books and specifications mentioned in ScdjwsLinks page.

bit confusing about the SOAP versions mentioned in http://www.coderanch.com/how-to/java/ScdjwsLinks

Which version of the SOAP specification is tested on the OCE WSD 6 exam?
Answer: SOAP 1.1
Which version of the SOAP specification is tested on the SCDJWS 5.0 exam?
Answer: SOAP 1.2

how v6 supporting SOAP 1.1 and lower version v5 is supporting 1.2 ? is it a typo ? or is it like that ?

Ok, let me clarify a bit:

Official detailed WSD 5 objectives mention SOAP 1.2, but exam questions refer actually to SOAP 1.1 only.

WSD 6 topics do not mention any concrete SOAP version, but exam questions refer actually to SOAP 1.1 only.

HTH,
MZ
