Hello Guys ,

I am preparing for  giving  Web Services exam from past 2 months . I had  to reschedule this exam from 16th Oct to a later date due to lack of preparation.
In fact i am not getting what is the exact syllabus of the exam . As per Oracle Web site it is written that SOAP ( JAX-WS ) and REST  ( JAX-RS )  web services are covered in topic .
J2SE and J2EE platforms will be covered . I had gone through OReilly's Java WebServices Up and Running  PDF twice ( because  reading once is n't enough for me  )
Also i have gone through Oracle Docs for J2EE web services for detailed understanding of few  topics . W3C school for WSDL 1.1 spec .
Now when i am doing  mock tests i see there are questions on UDDI API , JAXR registry APIs ( that i didnt read because it is not listed in syllabus )
So i want to know is UDDI API also needs to be covered  ? Also i find questions on JAX-RPC which again is not  included in WSD syllabus .

I am not confident  on  EJB conversions to Web services because I have never worked on EJB stuff .
Can some one please throw some light on where could i  find necessary and sufficient material on EJB . I know that EJB is wide topic in itself ,
but now i am apprehensive about going through EJB in detail , because it may wash away the  web service  stuff . Since my brain works like FIFO .

Please reply to above queries if any one has some idea .

Thanks much in advance .

Hi !

1) Not sure what mocks you checked, but WSD 6 Exam has no JAX-RPC, UDDI, JAXR.

2) There is no official syllabus for this exam from Oracle, just high level topics. I tried to create detailed objectives when prepared my WSD 6 Guide (see link in signature), but it not official.

Best regards,
MZ

Thanks MZ,

I have purchased an online testing material by EPractizeLabs . I found that many questions on their mock exams are either repeated  or very easy. Only few questions good enough to test the eligibility . And those were already  publicized on their free trial . I am not very much confident  on the preparation . Anyway , thanks much .

Hi,

This exam is a tough one and everybody who has prepared for it has the same feeling: did I do enough? Have I covered all the required topics in detail? and so on. The problem is basically what Mikalai says: there is only a high level list of topics.

Have you checked the OCEJWSD-Links? I recommend in particulair that you go through the "Important Materials for the exam" section.

You might want to try my Enthuware mocks as well.  A lot of people use multiple mock exams before attempting the exam. Check the Certification Results forum and search/read what others did in their preparation.

Good luck!

Hi Guys  ,

I have cleared OCEJWSD 6 ( 1z0-897) exam today with 90% score .  
Even though i was  not too confident  because on  few topics  i was  not very confident  .
Topics like  EJB as RS Web Services ,  use of @context invocation  though annotations i didnt not  try hands on . I have prepared in unconventional way .
I read  Java Web services Up and running book , then downloaded  MZ's Guide ( sorry i just downloaded  not read it  even once  because  i was getting bored )
Then i bought EpractizeLabs Mock Exams and performed one round of test with a range of  60%-70% .
Then i started reading about the weak topics  directly though Oracle Docs  , IBM docs  , W3C schools and every possible easy to understand blog .
Just couple of weeks before  i found http://www.examclouds.com where i read this exam's material .
then while doing mocks which ever the questions i was failing to answer i did an extensive search on google to understand it  .
Like WS-Addressing , conformance claims, J2EE annotations , wrapper and non wrapper style  are few stuff that i read from random sources .

not least  >> created few webservices / clients  in Eclipse .

I haven't got Certificate yet but  got  score card . (See attached )

Before going for actual tests i gave  Enthuware mock trial test and got  80% .


Thanks Frits, MZ and  all the Ranchers .

Regards
Subuhi

Thanks MZ and Frits .
After giving exam what i feel is that i have  passed basic eligibility criteria to vent into WS.
Lot more stuff needs to  go through like  oAuth / Dig Sig  etc. for which i haven't made  any programs yet .
