Since there aren't any "official" cert books out there for this exam, I thought I'd ask here: what do you folks think about RMH's book and how well it addresses the objectives of the exam? I'm very curious since, though I love the book, I have no way of gauging how well it will help me (unless I got off my butt and started mapping objectives to chapters, etc).

Hello Nathaniel,

the "must" for SCDJWS are (in order of importance decreasing):

1. J2EE WebServices by RMH
2. SUN Microsystem's WebServices blueprints
3. WS-I BP 1.0
4. SUN Microsystem's WebServices tutorial - JAXB, JAXP
5. J2EE Design Patterns - SUN Microsystem's

(ranchers, continue the list if I missed something ...)

regards,
MZ

One thing I can tell for sure is if you read and understand both the RMH and MZ site you will definitely pass the exam if you have some basic understanding of webservices.

Oh yes, but if score is important to you then you know which all specs to read :-)

I am going thru RMH book. My Opinion
-- Book is organized pretty well in parts ( and mostly as per sections in objective list). In addition to that RMH has done a nice job in organizing information within chapters.
-- Content of informative and to the point. ( Some books just repeats the same thing again and again which makes it bulkier) The way I see the book, it presents the 1. rule and/or theory 2. example and 3. explaination of example in light of theory/rule.
-- I usually read specification which are complicated ( sometimes !!) After reading intial chapter in RMH book (SOAP, WSDL, UDDI), I read WS-I Basic Profile specification. Reading the RMH book before made it so easy to understand and co-relate rules/restriction defined in WS-I BP. May be much to do with marking of rule with superscript BP.
-- Simple language.
