How java specific is this Webservices exam?

I would like to know how java specific this exam is.

My reason for asking is that I have a sort of checkered experience, and I want to do something with middleware. I passed SCJP-5 of course, and my latest job was java. But most of my work experience is still C++, CORBA, C# and .NET

Hence in the future I would like to do some job with webservices, but it would not have to be java. I would like to know and proove knowledge of the underlying protocols et cetera. The exam does seem to cover that goal I think.

Any advice?

By the way. For the same reason I am also looking at the IBM XML certification. Since that knowledge would also be language independant.

I'm not much familiar with either exam, but we do have the ScdjwsLinks page (which links to the exam objectives, amongst many other useful things), and the IBMXMLCertificationFaq.

This may not be relevant to you if you're not primarily interested in the Java aspects, but the SCDJWS covers (amongst many other things) the JAX-RPC API, which is obsolete now (replaced by JAX-WS). So if you actually do end up working with Java WS, it's not the perfect preparation either.
