I have told you ... so much worrying ...:-)
How can you compare this experience with EJB certification ? I wish to add it to my portfolio for the future

EJB it's easy. Because it's split, and it doesn't contain JPA, which is boring by the way (JPA).
From EJB certification you will know JNDI very good, injection of EJBs in EJBs, and so on.

Hi Cosmin,

Congratulations!!!

I see a lot of questions in the "Message Level security" topic. What is the best resource to study that topic?

@Davide: check the ScbcdLinks, you will find the information you need and I have put my notes there.

Cosmin,
Congratulations.
In the exam, is there any WSDL 2.0? Is WSDL 1.1 in the exam instead?
I just want to make sure which version I should study for this version 6 exam.... Please help.

Any tips to study for the exam?

Cosmin. Thanks for your quick response.
Java Web Service Up and Running does not cover all topics. So, what else reference books or web sites you read?

Last time you asked this question:

Hello,

Where is a good source to explain the following topics:

WS-Policy
WS-Addressing (how it works, not how to enable it)
WS-* (QoS stuff)

WS-Security
SAML
XACML
XKMS
Liberty project

STS

I tried wikipedia / google / ivan notes, java up and running, but the explanations are confusing ..
I did managed to understand digital certificates, xml signatures, private/public key stuff. But those topics are too confusing ..

Thanks !

Where do you get reference books for these topics?

So, is Google/Wikipedia good enough to learn these topics from the exam's perspective?
By the way, In Ivan's notes, should I skip chapter 6 JAXR?
I heard JAXR is not on the exam.

No JAXR no UDDI. You should understand what SAML, XKMS, XACML does. I also got information from tests, their explanations.

This is a source to learn about SAML 2.0 : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SAML_2.0
XKMS: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XKMS
XACML : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XACML
For SAML, XKMS and XACML, is Wikipedia good enough to pass the exam?

UCertify and EPractize Labs (700 questions). But in all questions there were lots of bullshit and errors. I checked on the internet things that I thought weren't right.

From other ranchers , I heard UCertify and EPractice Labs are not really accurate. They read Ivan's note and MZ's notes which are more helpful for the exam.

The reason why I keep asking questions because a lot of ranchers are looking for the right material to prepare for the exam.
Unlike other exams, this exam does not have an official study guide. Some ranchers feel frustrated because of that.

I hope your opinions will help other ranchers.

First of Congrates Cosmin.

I have started reading Web services up and running book. Also looking into Ivan's notes.

For ex. It will be very helpful for all ranchers to refer. As suggested, No JAXR no UDDI are not required in Ivan's book.

Please suggest, if i need to look into other ref material as well.

Can you please suggest what all topics of evan's notes are not required for ocpjwsd 5?

I read Richard Monson Haefel's J2EE web service. It is a 10 years old book. But it is still useful.
I read MZ's notes. The link is on the exam's FAQ page.
Someone suggested Restful Java with JAX=RS.
Someone also suggested to read Jersey's tutorial chapter 1-5.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
