This certification is not popular? or because it is still emerging.

By default you will only see the threads that had a post from the last 30 days. You can change that in the forum home page. The searches can cover the entire contents.

As of yet there isn't a comprehensive Study Guide for this certification. Also while web services are "hot", the servlet and EJB technologies are in much wider use. In many cases pilot projects will use Apache Axis, or a Soap engine that comes with the application server, rather than JWSDP - must likely because its more convenient to use (at this point), and the associated tradeoffs don't impact those projects (yet).

But you are correct that web services are very much an emerging field - but the breadth of standards used is aready pretty wide - and its getting wider.

Hi Peter,

I am just curious, do you work primarily in Java or .NET. For my own part I have worked in C# for the last three years and have little java experience, none really. I just have a keen interest in Java.

Do you work in both or more in one technology. I see you have certifications in both like me.

I've always tried to be a Langauge Agnostic, i.e. Pick the right tool for the Job. You really can't be a platform agnostic as you usually have to work with what is already in place. Two years ago I expected .NET to gain momentum much faster than it has - Microsoft was too reliant on Windows Server 2003 to introduce it into market. Things will probably pick up once Longhorn (with .NET/WinFX built-in) becomes a mainstream desktop operating system - but then its going to be .NET 2.x anyway.
Currently I'm totally immersed in Java/J2EE - otherwise it would get too confusing (and voluminous). :roll:

Claiming Java is easier than C++ is like saying that K2 is shorter than Everest. (Larry O'Brien)

I think the same thing can be said, if not now then in the near future, about .NET and Java EE.

Peter,

I am going to risk answering your difficulty question. I think both Java and C# are easier than C++ as far as language syntax goes, however they both have far more complex and varied class libraries than C++, in that respect they are far more difficult.

Of course Swing and WinForms are easier than the MFC, not part of the Standard C++ Library anyway. However the breath of the class libaries in Java and C# are enormous. However both languages are far more elegant and syntactically easier than C++.

Actually I was simply referring to the comparison of Java EE vs .NET. Either one is big enough to keep you busy for some time if you want to ensure that you are not re-inventing the wheel.

Java is a small language with huge API but C++ is a big language with small API

really C++ is the right choice if we need to manage the memory but Java can not do that

Although that , comparing the two languages is not the right decision . Java and J2ee has been used for years in the web application , client server apps but C++ used for embedded , operating systems , game programming , financial , ....

Thanks
