This week's book giveaway is in the OCMJEA forum. We're giving away four copies of OCM Java EE 6 Enterprise Architect Exam Guide and have Paul Allen & Joseph Bambara on-line! See this thread for details.
I have cleared OCJP6 and I want to appear for OCWCD6. But I am confused with the version problem so need to clarify 2 things.
1. Is 1Z0-899 Java EE 6 Web Component Developer Certified Expert Exam a direct version change for 1Z0-858 Java Enterprise Edition 5 Web Component Developer Certified Professional Exam ? If not then please tell the exact replacement of 1Z0-858 Java Enterprise Edition 5 Web Component Developer Certified Professional Exam for version 6.
2. Since the 1Z0-899 is for Expert level , is the difficulty level different from that of professional level?
Hi Aditya Narayan , can you please help to answer the questions you were looking for? Since, even i am having the same queries and not able to get the answers ,it would be great if you or anyone can help to answer the above questions.
Thanks in advance.

Sorry for late reply. I have just passed SCWCD5. There are few reasons why I choose SCWCD5 instead of SCWCD6 . First I want to go for furthur certifications like SCBCD5 which consists of both EJB3.0 and JPA1.0. The preparation material is also available for this exam. Besides, my project in office also is on J2EE 1.5 .Thats why. But before taking the exam I have done some research. I would like to share the result.
The equivalent exam of 1z0-858(SCWCD5) was 1Z0-894 which has been discontinued and new exam is 1Z0-899. Name might be misnomer and people often get confused in keywords, professional and expert but here in this case they are the same.
The topics which are added in SCWCD6 are-
More options for the Model Understand the roles of JDBC and JPA
Understand the many elements that make up the model
Understand fundamentals of connecting to a database using JDBC or JPA
Asynchronous web applications Understand the interactions that are essential to asynchronous web pages
Understand the role of AJAX-style client side programming
Implement asynchronous servlets using the facilities of Java EE 6
Understand the role of JAAS in pluggable/extensible authentication for web applications
Manning Servlet in action book for SCWCD is a good preparation material. Well some of these materials are available in black book for j2ee 6 and rest on Google. Hope you find this reply useful. If any furthur querries , I would imeediately respond. Please mail or reply here .
