Hi All,

What does part I of the exam focus on more: webservices or JSF? I dont have much time before I take Part I and would like to know which topic I should be reading in depth. I have fundamental knowledge of both.

Suggestions on which one to read up on if I absolutely had to pick one over the other?

Higher level of both. Seriously, you are going to need to know about non-functional requirements more than the details of a technology.

Overall knowledge of both required to decide the selection of appropriate web framework(JSF,Struts,Spring,etc.. & integration approach(JMS,webservice,CORBA,etc..) meeting service level requirements.

I agree. Here's the link:
