these questions on my mind came while doing some mock exams. any comments?

1. is trax part of jaxp?

2. in the real exam, if not specified, is it assumed that the question is based on bp? one mock exam never mentions bp on at least 2 of its questions, but bases the answer on the bp. the answer would be different if it is not limited to bp

3. is xml declaration is required on the first line of soap message?

4. Which specs, if any, says that servlet-mapping url-pattern for endpoint must be specific like

<url-pattern>/webservice/SomeService</url-pattern>

and cannot be unspecific or wildcard like

<url-pattern>/webservice/*</url-pattern>

There is no TraX specification. However if you check the JAXP 1.2 (JSR 063) you will see that it covers the "transformation API" which covers the javax.xml.transform.dom, javax.xml.transform.sax, and javax.xml.transform.stream packages.

As far as I could tell BP was mentioned when in was relevant.

No, but the receiver must allow it.
Basic Profile 1.0a


4.1.9 SOAP and XML Declarations
Presence or absence of an XML declaration does not affect interoperability. Certain implementations might always precede their XML serialization with the XML declaration.

R1010 A RECEIVER MUST accept messages that contain an XML Declaration

Web Services for J2EE, Version 1.1 (JSR 109)
page 42


Servlet Mapping. A developer may optionally specify a servlet-mapping, in the web.xml deployment descriptor, for a JAX-RPC Service Endpoint. No more than one servlet-mapping may be specified for a servlet that is linked to by a port-component. The url-pattern of the servlet-mapping must be an exact match pattern (i.e. it must not contain an asterisk (�*�)).

Finally, got fed up with preparation and took the jump, eh.
Well, the "gamble" paid off - its done!
Congratulations!

However the Sun's certification acronym should be SCDJWSI
Sun Certified Developer for Java Web Service Interfaces (or even Interaction Layers).
Apparently the "Processing Layer" isn't that important.
Somebody else�s job.
