do you mean Weblogic Server supports EJB 3.0? yes

http://www.oracle.com/technology/pub/articles/dev2arch/2008/07/spring.html
Oracle WebLogic Server 10.3 is the leading implementation of Sun Microsystems' Java EE 5 platform.

Hi,

This might not be directly related to the exam and is more of an architecture question.

SOAP is the preferred protocol of communication for web services.

As of today or in near future,are there alternative protocols available and possible. Possible yes, but are there any alternatives? If yes, can anyone list some.

Can anyone provide links?

RMH gives a lot of API details and I am not sure if I am expected to memorize these for the exam.
Also, how much JAX-RPC mapping did you cover?


Thanks Kapoor.

You need to know some important APIs and their methods. However I dont remember any particular question on specific methods.

No, I dont remember any questions on JAXRPC mapping.

Hope it helps.
Thanks Milakai, Wise, Peer.

Sure Peer. You are right. I was trying to drive the point that there comes a point when preparation seems endless and might put you off, inspite of working so hard and covering most of the topics. Your point clarifies when to stop.

Hi,

Finally, cleared SCDJWS with 82%. I was surprised with my score. Thank you all Ranchers, especially. Peer, Wise, MZ

Prep time: 6 months.(4 months figuring out how and where to start)

Here is what I prepared and recommend for the exam in exactly the following order.

1. Blueprints complete.
2. RMH: Chapter 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. I read UDDI introduction only.

3. Following chapters from Sun tutorial.
http://java.sun.com/j2ee/1.4/docs/tutorial/doc/index.html
Chapter 8 : Building Web Services with JAX-RPC
Chapter 9 : SOAP with Attachments API for Java
Chapter 10 : Java API for XML Registries
Read every line. Try and work all the examples with Sun Application Server.

4. Chapter 14(handlers) from RMH

For JAXP, I trusted my past experience and little working knowledge on SAX, DOM, XSLT. I skipped JAXB completely and read it only from MZ quiz.

Optional: Try to read RMH chapters on JAXRPC, JAXR, JAXP(if you have time. I did not)

5. MZ Quiz : MUST. Most helpful. (Note to MZ, please try and improve the format. Answers can be given at the end of all questions)
6. Whizlabs : I am a great Whizlabs fan but it didn't help much for this exam. But gives you a good idea of what to expect. It is much harder than the real exam. (Note to whizlabs: THe new "improved" format of whizlabs sucks.Please go back to your old format. And concentrate more on quality of questions rather than presentation.)

7. Mock exams: http://www.xyzws.com/scdjws.do?cat=scdjws&smenu=MOCK

About the exam: It was not as difficult as I expected.
There were atleast 10+ questions on security. MZ Quiz was sufficient.
Many of the questions were scenario based and had some tricky options which were difficult to eliminate. My experience might have helped here.
Luckily there were not many questions on web.xml and webservices.xml.

Final advice. Don't waste too much time on preparation!!

All the best

Hi,

Isn't TRAX part of JAXP? I think so.

In that case there is an error in Whizlab question.
Which of the following are included in JAXP API
1. SAX
2. StAX
3. TrAX
4. XSLT
5. JDOM

Correct answers(according to Whizlab)
SAX and XSLT

It further says, StAX and TrAX are not part of JAXP API.

Any comments?

Vasim

try BEA's ALSR which is a wrapper aroud Systinet. 90 days free. I think extentible for developers.

http://www.bea.com/framework.jsp?CNT=index.htm&FP=/content/products/aqualogic/service_registry/

It is basically a wrapper around Systinet UDDI registry.

You can use Sun J2EE tutorials JAXR samples here by changing the enquiry URI and publish URI.
Thanks Peer. Yes, I got it now.
the wscompile on client side reads the wsdl file and generates 2 java files(among others) in its package.
staticstub.Hello
staticstub.HelloImpl

Thanks

Hi,

I am trying to understand how the JAX RPC static stub client is built in Sun Webservices tutorial
http://java.sun.com/j2ee/1.4/docs/tutorial/doc/JAXRPC3.html

Here we have HelloIF and HelloImpl classes. Both these classes are in the
package helloservice.



These have been built using


Now the client HelloClient.java is in package staticstub.




I wanted to know how does HelloClient compile WITHOUT importing package helloservice in which HelloIF has been declared.

Isn't this against the basic java rules.

Or is there a smart way ANT does.

Can someone please explain or give me a plain javac command to compile the HelloClient.java
