Hello Everyone,

I have not worked in Java web services so far also I might not have an opportunity in near future. But I want to learn web services and prepare for SCDJWS exam. Can someone suggest is this a wise idea without having a real time experience?

Thanks,
Yogesh

Hi!
I am of the strong belief that knowledge is always valuable. You may think that you have no use of it, but consider the following:
After having learned about web services, I have been able to apply some of the concepts in my daily work, even though the software I was developing had nothing to do with web services.
I also feel that SOA (let's for a minute forget the hype and consider the architectural principles, which does not necessarily involve web services etc etc) is a very interesting and useful paradigm.

Additionally, entering into an area in which you have no, or little, experience will enable you to learn even more and also expose yourself to new ways of thinking. Much more interesting than learning something I am already familiar with, if you ask me.
Best wishes!

Ivan - Thanks a lot for your encouraging tip, I really mean it. I will sure start learning Web Services and reap the benefits from SOA. I will be start with SOA using Java Web Services (Mark Hansen). I will be touch in case if I have any questions.

Cheers,
Yogesh
