2>Which books are availbale for the exam, and are they exam specific or do
we have to refer to some other material.

You must be a Sun Certified Java Programmer.
2>Which books are availbale for the exam, and are they exam specific or do we have to refer to some other material.
There are no dedicated "exam cram" books available at this time. Many have pointed out that Richard Monson-Haefel's J2EE Web Services covers a large part of the exam objectives and is thus considered recommended reading.
3>What is the time frame required for preparation for someone whose new to webservices.
I believe that depends a lot on the "someone". Some people spend hundreds of hours preparing for certification exams while others pick up the book the night before...

Here is a thread that answers your questions about what to read. Make sure you read the whole thing. the test is targeted to people who have at least 6 months experience in the subject, but regardless of the number of months you've been at it, you'll need to know the protocols and APIs.
