Could anyone plz guide on the course for beta Study as per the latest objectives release by Sun.
If one studies thoroughly:
- Sun's JWS tutorial
- J2EE and XML Development (Kurt A. Gabrick, David B. Weiss)
If I am not wrong, J2EE Web Services by Richard Monson-Haefel is the BEST book but this book is not available in India. Is there any other BOOK comparable to this? Hey Indians, Comment!!
Is it suffcient for Complete preparation OR Any other resources are required. Plz help with some info on the Resouces.
Hope Everyone wud share his ideas/knowledge on this!
Also, if one puts in 3 weeks completely for beta preparation. Is it sufficient for the Beginner?

Thanx Pradeep,
I have already read the article u mentioned.
But since J2EE Web Services by Richard Monson-Haefel is unavailable, How are following resources rated by Ranchers for study:
- Sun's JWS tutorial
- J2EE and XML Development (Kurt A. Gabrick, David B. Weiss)
Are above mentioned Resources suffcient for Complete preparation OR Any other resources are required.
According to you, For an AVERAGE learner (at Beginner level) person, Is 3 weeks time enough for beta preparation.
Wud appreciate the valuable comments/suggestions by Ranchers!

Sun's tutorial may be enough for the API section of the tutorial and API are just a small part of the beta. The tutorial does not cover SOAP, WSDL,UDDI, security, deployment, design and architecture. It is best to search the internet for these sections of the objectives. I believe that there are loads of resources.

If you put in efforts any thing is possible. Make the best use of your free time. The last day is May 23, so there is plenty of time. Not many are likely to take up the exam in April I guess.

Does Ray Lai's J2EE Platform Web Services cover the area of security and design architecture of the beta exam?

Yeah its a good book. I remember having read it last year. But dont waste your time on that. It does not cover the Exam spec.
j2ee Web services w'd be more than a handful for the next couple of weeks.

The Toable of Contents indicates that there are chapters on Security and Architecture but not sure if they are useful for the beta. :roll:

There are a lot of good books out there, but most of them don't cover the most recient releases of the J2EE APIs (JAX-RPC, JAXR, JAXP, SAAJ). The only book that does, to my knowalge is Addison-Wesley's.
Here is the india link:

Also see the specs and blue print book listed in this thread:

Best of luck!
