Hi All,

I have experience in JSP's and servlets but I am completely new to webservice.

I want to start preparing for the SCDJWS. Could you please tell me just ONE single the best book/guide for learning WS and starting my preparation. Later on when I'll have some experience on WS by reading that book, I can go thru the other books.

Thanks!

If there's any single book that's most quoted in this thread, I think the J2EE Web Services book would be IT.

Just as long as you realize that that is only the beginning.

Correct - however its doesn't cover all the exam objectives. You may find this topic of some interest.

(RMH is "J2EE Web Services" by Richard Monson-Haefel)

When we wrote the exam, the blueprints and RMH's book were our guiding lights.



Which means that these are essential:
  • J2EE Web Services (RMH; Richard Monson-Haefel) (amazon US)
  • Java BluePrints: Patterns, Guidelines, Conventions, and Code: Designing Web Services with the J2EE(TM) 1.4 Platform: JAX-RPC, SOAP, and XML Technologies on-line HTML PDFs (amazon US)


  • A detailed cross-reference is given in Val's Specs-Objectives Mapping.

    And those two books don't cover the Security objectives.

    Here is a more current end-to-end toy example. Just be warned that the Java technology used there is not covered by the exam - but the WSDL/SOAP/XML hasn't changed.
