I've been going through the old messages here trying to gather information about preparing to take the SCDJWS exam. Theres a lot of great information here. I had some trouble following some of the abreviations, but I think I've got it now. Here's a summary of the reccomendataions that I've seen you guys make:

RMH �(J2EE web services, by Richard Monson Haefel RMH) - ISBN 0321146182

MZ guide (SCDJWS Study Guide by MZ) - http://java.boot.by/wsd-guide/

J2EE blue prints (Sun SDN J2EE blueprints. Maybe you guys can help me narrow these down a bit more?) -
http://java.sun.com/reference/blueprints/ - Blueprints main page
http://java.sun.com/blueprints/webservices/index.html - Web Services blueprints

WSI-BP 1.0(a) - ??? Is this one of the blueprints?

Study Material - http://techtracer.com/2007/03/17/scdjws-study-material-and-resources-the-most-searched-thing/

Mock Tests - http://techtracer.com/2007/03/19/scdjws-mock-tests-and-help-tried-and-tested/

Did I miss anything? I've got a few books on the way & am fixing to start studying:

Securing Web Services with WS-Security - ISBN 0672326515
J2EE Security for Servlets, EJBs, and Web Services - ISBN 0131402641
J2ee Web Services - ISBN 0321146182
Sun Certified Developer for Java Web Services - ISBN 0072259523 (ETA July 2007)

Thanks for all the great info!

don't forget the collection of links gathered together for this forum

Also the blueprints I've been loooking at are here - seem to be different to the ones you pointed to - probably becausre they're specific to J2EE 1.4

Thanks for the replies. I was totally clueless about the wsi. That makes perfect sense now. As for those blueprints, I think both were 1.4, but it looks like the ones MW posted may be a bit more specific than what I previously found. I'll dig thorugh those and see.

So far as I can tell the CS-310-220 exam is still based on J2EE 1.4 specification. I know some major changes have come to play on 1.5, especially regarding web services and EJBs. Any idea if Sun is planning on upgrading this test?
