Hi all,
After completing WCD and BCD, I seem to be more interested in this exam rather than SCEA.
I would like to ask whether the RMH book / Free blueprint for web-services completely cover all the objectives required by the exam. Is it enough to read just one of the 2 or both of them for complete coverage of exam objectives? Also, from a beginner's point of view, which is easier to follow - RMH book or blueprint?

Also, another thing that I would like to ask is how soon do you expect web-services to be updated with Java 5 ? I feel the effort for this exam might not be worth it as web services would be updated soon with Java 5. Please let me know your views

My specification-objective mapping probably answers that question

Both are different but equally good. The RMH book delves more into the details, though.

This is not going to happen soon. And when it will happen, the exam will be upgraded to be in line with Java EE 5 (requires Java 5) and not only with Java SE 5.
