I passed the Oracle Certified Expert, Java EE 6 Enterprise Web Services Developer exam today with 85% score.

My preparation tips may help others appearing for this exam.

I started preparing for OCP Web Services (java ee 5) exam and decided to take new certification after contacting Oracle.
Thanks to Graham for changing my mind.

My preparation advice for OCE Java EE 6 Web Services exam takers:

Study well about SOAP/XML and JSON based web services
Study well on JAX-RS resource classes (including resource method security)
Study well about JAX-WS(in both web and business components)
Study well about best client-side technologies ( You will be asked to choose best client-side technologies (like REST, JavaScript, XML, SOAP) based on some business problems)
Study well about SOAP and JAX-RS clients (Yo will be asked to choose java code to upload data to web service provider)
Study well about HTTP Basic Authentication in web services including web.xml usage
Study all EJB security annotations (@RolesAllowed..etc)
Study the concept of Metro project (I got around 3 questions in Metro project)
You might expect questions about SSL, Mutal Authentication, XML Encryption, Digital Signatures .....
Study well about WS-Security token profiles
I got couple of questions about WebServiceContext annotation
SOAP handlers
Got questions in DOM, StaX, SAAJ, JAXB
Got questions about Singleton session bean as JAX-RS resource class

Preparation books:

William Manning's scdjws5 book:

http://www.amazon.com/SCDJWS-Certified-CX-310-230-Certification-Preparation/dp/1742445802

This is a bogus book. Please read the comments on Amazon.

Thanks&Regards, Krishna.

Krishna. Thanks for the alert message. That'll help people to avoid the pitfall. Martin Kalin is good book and so is Mikalai's notes.

Congratulation on your excellent score. I see that you used EPractize Labs's Web Services Training Lab. I, however, found this software to be extremely poor quality, more http://www.coderanch.com/t/597623/java-Web-Services-SCDJWS/certification/EPractize-Labs-Web-Services-Training. What do you think?
