Hello yesterday I finally passed Web Services Developer Certified Expert Exam 6, I am really happy about that but I hope to not repeat such frustrating experience.
Even if I have passed the exam I am still very confused about web services as EJB, why and how we have to implement addressing and other stuff.
I have to grab notions from different sources without going to much in detail that means storing in my mind basic concept, abstract definition, acronyms without undestanding completely the subject, I really missed material
I used for the programmer.
This certification was usefull because I have learned a lot of new things, tested many example and read a lot of stuff, but for the last month I did not study to learn web services certification
I studied to store the questions of the exam. They shoud split the exam in different part, that's the reason why I want to go further I am planning to enroll for IBM SOA certification to go more in depth.
I really thank everybody who gave me support here and clarified my doubts and also apologize with people I made upset.
If you have some question about exam experience just ask I will share with the forum

Hello Davide,

Congratulations ! You made it

What was the score ?

Are there any question from security, JAXR and addressing ?

Did you receive the result after the exam immediately or it took few days ?

Hei,

Congrats.

I have the same experience like you too, I think it's the most confusing certification ever.

I have some questions. Do they test you for:

- WSDL 2.0
- SOAP encoding
- Jersey CLIENT / RestEasy Client / Javascript Client
- SOAP Connection

I'will take the exam tomorrow. Wish me luck. And I also want the next certification to be SOA from Oracle as I'm currently working on a project with Oracle SOA.

And a last question:

Was the exam hard ? Were you at a point thinking that you're not sure if you will pass as there were more than 20 questions you weren't sure about. Or everything was decent ?

Thanks
Congratulations again.

- WSDL 2.0 No question about diff between 1.0
- SOAP encoding Not too many question about jax ws I was convincted was the focal point
- Jersey CLIENT / RestEasy Client / Javascript Client Jersey client just learn how to make a post o get and how to pass myme type that's it
- SOAP Connection few questions

I was convicted this certification was based on jax ws I encountered many question on ejb.
some question were little ambiguous, other so easy.
Consider I dont have big commercial experience with real XML parsing, schema, EJB you back ground can really help you.
Stuck in your head question from ucertify epractize lab and MZ the question are very similar.
I encoutered a question about handler service-name-pattern filter with service name and namespace, 1 question about SOA UDDI, a weird question about ansync web services
a question asking if you are using web services as ejb if you can have child sub resource with different annotation ex: father @stateless child subresource = @singleton is it possible ?

rewiew question from the mock, dont waste time with specification about security just stuck in your head acronymous and basic meaning
dont forge to register on oracle, at the end of the quiz you dont receive any feedback. You have to wait 30 minutes and the result will sent to your email , it's
awful
Cosmin dont be scared you have solid background and many certification it is going to help you
I will write more detail during the day actually my memories are little fogged

They are not on the exam
just a question on jersy client it is very easy it take 5 minutes to leanr how to make a GET and POST with jersey.
remember java.net ..the only question possible is dooutpunt, doinput
there was a strage question and I am not sure if i did well

- SOA and web services both use http
- the scope of SOA is to discover web service in UDDI
- SOA is the design and architecture web services the implementation

I choosed the last not sure If i did well this is the only question where UDDI was mentioned

Well your answer was true. And the presence of the UDDI word in this question doesn't mean that UDDI is on the exam :P

Congratulations Davide!!!

Just to add a few questions:

- did you get any questions about webservices.xml? or sun-jaxws.xml or handler-chain.xml?
- packaging?

No question about webservices.xml
question about how to add security with annotion on web service as ejb
a tricky question about handler-chain.xml, about service-name-pattern I expecte to find a question
where you say that service-name-pattern is based on the name of the service that's it
The question was
service-name-pattern
<jws:service-name-pattern
xmlns:ns1="http://handlersample.samples.ibm.com/">ns1:hello*</jws:service-name-pattern>
I have choosen al the service name begining with "hello" and with namespace htttp://handlersample.samples.ibm.com/
I hope I did well i have never found question like this in my mocks
The other question are intuitive easy very similar to the mock, only 10 question were pretty tough for me, but because I dont have very long experience with J2EE in general

Davide,
Congrats.
Is WSDL 2.0 in the exam? When I checked the FAQ link, it says WSDL 1.0 is in this exam.
So, which WSDL version should I follow then?

 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
