Dear All,

I have completed my SCJP 1.4.
I'm working in J2EE related technologies.
I'm totally new to Web services. I want to clear SCDJWS.
Can I take it up with no experience in it? Please advice.

Welcome to JavaRanch!

Yes, you may attempt it without any experience, however you should be aware that it will most likely be significantly more work than the SCJP, SCBCD or SCWCD as it covers a broad range of topics.

You can certainly attempt it with no experience, but as Peer said, it'll be much more difficult as it covers so many topics and standards. I wouldn't attempt it if you never worked with it and are just reading from a book, because most of it will not make sense. Practice it too! Get tomcat and Axis, get JBoss, or download a free trial of WebSphere from IBM and work with all those web services engines. Create, use, deploy, and modify all the web services that you can, and you will have a great head start. Then go back and read all you can about web services from the RMH book. Not only will you have a good understanding of web services, but now you have put them to use and should be more than ready for the exam.
