SCEA Part 1 is still based on EJB 1.0. And the SCEA is way more popular than the SCDJWS.
Maybe Sun has had it with SOAP web services and SOA, and they are taking a wait-and-see attitude - to see whether the momentum is maintained or whether this whole thing is just a campaign by IBM/Microsoft to fleece their more affluent clients and to keep the other vendors off balance with fire and motion tactics. (Seriously: The "Oh, no - we created another RPC specification" opinions seem to be accumulating).
It's depressing to think that SOAP started just about 10 years ago and that now that everything is said and done, we built RPC again. I know SOAP is really an XML messaging protocol, you can do oneway async stuff, etc, etc, but let's face it. The tools make the technology and the tools (and the examples and the advice you get) point at RPC. And we know what the problems with RPC are. If you want to build something that is genuinely loosely-coupled, RPC is a pretty hard path to take.

Thank you for the link, I lost RMHF's Blog now I will add it to my feed reader. I had experience with both JAX-RPC and JAX-WS, I would say JAX-WS is 10 time better than JAX-RPC. I don't see any logical reason for this latency and inconsistency, I hope they solve it soon.
Being certified now is not used in fashion show like two years ago.(my personal feeling)

Too much effort for too little return. I wouldn't be surprised if the cost of development of an update to the SCDJWS is significantly higher (perhaps multiple times higher) than that of an update to the SCJP, SCBCD or even SCEA, each of which have many more potential certification candidates than the SCDJWS. It's just too broad a topic, with too many distinct and incongruous details, which basically only addresses interfacing problems (most of which can be addressed in other ways).
