Can I learn web services while skipping both servlet and jsp?

1)
I'm planning on learning bootstrap, jquery and javascript, and would like to skip servlet and jsp. Do you think it's possible that web services completely replace both servlet and jsp? I took a course on j2ee in college and the class only spent two lectures on jsp and servlets. Obviously, the semester class was worthless. I'll also want to pick up maven and git.


2)
I just want to confirm if it is true that the OCE WSD 6 (web services) includes both jax-rs and jax-ws?

I've looked here
http://www.coderanch.com/how-to/java/ScdjwsLinks

the exam appears to be 1Z0-897 and I think the exam covers both because Mikalai Zaikin's Free OCE WSD 6 Study Guide contains both rs and ws.

This is huge!

No. Servlets and JSP's are still widely used.

Yes, with more emphasis on JAX-WS tough.

I ment, can I learn web services while skipping both servlet and jsp? I don't intend to ever use facelets... so that's one reason I don't want to get the other lesser certificate. but then I could be wrong because I'm new and exposed to biased opinions. asking for input. i want a job.

Without a grounding in servlets, and to some extent, JSP, you aren't going to be able to wrap your head around the technologies upon which web services are built. This is especially true in the job market. If you want to work on the server side of web applications in Java, a good solid grounding in servlets and JSP is essential.
