Hi, Yogs Kumar,

I recommend to read these references in this order:
1. First, read Java Web Services Up and Running. I read the first edition of this book. Pay attention to chapter 1-5. Skip Restlet framework and Jersey through WADLing sessions in chapter 4. Pay attention to the topics like WSDL, SOAP based JAX-WS, Dispatch/Provider, MTOM, WS-Security, Restful JAX-WS and mutual authentication.

2. Second, read Restful Java with JAX-RS by Bill Burke as a supplement for JAX-RS as recommended by one of the ranchers. Optionally, you can read RMH's J2EE Web Services for understanding the concept. RMH does a good job in the topics like message handler, INOUT/OUT parameters and SOAP headers.

3. Then, read Ivan's notes. His topics about JAXP, dispatch/provider, security (SSL, message level security, basic/mutual authentication), best practices (web service architectural design, asynchronous server...) are really good. Skip topics about JAXR, UDDI, webservices.xml, web service component and SOAP 1.2. If you have some basic understanding about XML, you can skip that chapter too. I think version 6 of the exam does not emphasize on XML syntax.

4. Read MZ's version 5 and 6 notes and quiz. His version 5 notes are supplemental materials to Ivan's notes. MZ does a good job to explain SAAJ API.

5. Try to do the mock exams from Ethuware and/or ePractice Lab. For Ethuware, there is another forum at http://enthuware.com/forum/index.php related to the mock exams.

To my experience, I don't understand what MZ's notes are talking about until I read the books and Ivan's notes. Sometimes, google J2EE 6 tutorial, WSIT tutorial (chapter 6-7) and Jersey 1.7 tutorial help a lot.
And visiting this code ranch to see what questions people ask can help too.

Can you/someone please clarify if it is jersey 1.7 or 1.17?

Thanks

Hi Mujahed Syed,

All Jersey 1.x versions cover JAX-RS 1.x. You can read the latest version of their user guide Jersey 1.18 User Guide and you will be will be well prepared for the exam.

Jersey 2.x covers JAX-RS 2.x and is not needed for the WSD EE6 Certification exam.

Regards,
Frits
