Passed OCEWSD (JEE 6) with 68%

I passed the OCEWSD 6 exam on Aug 15 2011 and scored 68%.

Preparation Method:
Though I started to prepare for the exam about 3 months back, I did not continue beyond a few days due to other commitments.
I started again on the last week of July and prepared for about 20 days.

The following are the resources that I referred for the exam.
SOA Using Java Web Services - Mark D Hansen
Java Web Services - Up and Running - by Martin Kalin
Java Passion
Sun Tuturial about WebServices

The study guide and quiz provided by Mikalai Zaikin was very helpful. Thanks Mr. Mikalai Zaikin.

About the exam:
A lot of questions that I faced were multi-select type (more than one correct answer). So the expectation is that we should know all the aspects (not just a high level understanding).

Majority of the questions were from the following topics:
Basics of XML
Java APIs for XML Parsing (SAX, DOM, STAX)
Rest Overview,
JAX RS (Servlet and EJB endpoints)
JAX WS (Servlet and EJB endpoints)
Transaction support in EJB end point
Types of EJBs that can be Webservice Endpoints
Handlers (Declarative and Programmatic)
web.xml (security constraint, login config)
@Path - Root resource, Sub Resource
Service Class, Proxy - how to add new feature
WS Policy
WS Addressing (how to mention a different destination for response)
WS Security - Confidentiality and Integrity (Digital Signature, Encryption, Secure Tokens), Private/Public Key
Metro Project (What is covered and what is not)
WS I basic profile
Asynchronous processing (Client side Call back or polling)
UDDI (how to search)

Best Wishes.
Vandan - SCJP 1.2 (86%), SCWCD 1.4 (91%), OCEWSD6 (68%)

Hi Vandan congrates...

Need help about the weight-age of the topics in the new JEE6 exams as objectives are completely different. How much % do you think appeared from the JEE5 objectives such as low level SOAP processing & hard core theory questions like WS-I strict syntax questions?

Is exam is more practical oriented than JEE5? Any suggestions will be so helpful...

Sorry about the delayed reply. I did not do or prepare for the JEE 5. So I am not able to compare the JEE 5 with 6.
I felt that the weightage was more or less equal on all the exam objectives.
The intent of the exam is more towards to the application part of the technology and little towards the syntax.

I agree. Here's the link:
