Hi All,
I could not get Richard Monson's book in India. I have talked to Pearson guys and as per them, it will take another 2 weeks for the India Edition of the book to come up. Poor Indians..What to do now?
Pls suggest how to start the studies now. Starting with the Sun's Blueprint book will do?
Would appreciate if Richard gives us his valuable suggestions and help. Thanx.
Also, What softwares are required as pre-requisite for the Exam?

Sorry about the problems for our friends in India. Hopefully this will be resolved soon.
If you cannot get a copy of my book, I would suggest that you start with Sun's J2EE 1.4 tutorial to start learning about JAX-RPC and other Web Service APIs. Its not the best tutorial in the world, but it a good place to start and will give you some hand's on experience.
Here is the link:
http://java.sun.com/j2ee/1.4/docs/tutorial/doc/index.html
Specifically, I would focus my time on these chapters from the J2EE 1.4 tutorial:
Chapter 1: Overview
Chapter 2: XML
Chapter 4: JAXP
Chapter 5: SAX
Chapter 6: DOM
Chapter 8: JAX-RPC
Chapter 9: SAAJ
Chapter 10: JAXR
Chapter 32: Security
Appendix B:
Appendix C:
You will have noticed that I only recommend a few of the 30+ chapters. I tried to choose those chapters that focused on Web services, rather than JSP, EJB, JSF, etc. Having said that, you may need to read the Servlet chapter to understand JAX-RPC Service Endpoints - others will not. If you run into a topic you don't understand that is necessary to understanding one of the Web Services APIs, than you should go back and read that chapter. The assumption, however, is that people taking the test have a basic understanding of the J2EE architecture and its basic components (EJBs, Servlets, JSPs).
I hope this helps!
Richard
