Hi all,

I am working on SOA projects for a bit more than a year now and, given my current huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge experience in Jax-WX, JAXB, WSDL,... I was thinking about upgrading my CV and getting the SCDJWS certification.

Now, I had a look at the exam objectives and noted it mentions quite old stuff like Jax-RPC and the like (and I not sure UDDI is actually widely used in the real world...).

=> my question: do any of you have an idea when Sun migh update the exam to fit J2EE 5 spec?

(Sorry if this questions has already been asked, the only trace I could find was this unanswered topic:

)

Thank you all in advance,

Cheers,

Rodrigo

I think it's something we're all waiting for, but Sun hasn't really given any indication about an update. Current thinking is that if you want this cert, take this exam now, as there really is no horizon for an update.

Sun has updated a number of other exams, including SCEA to JEE5, SCJP to 6, and SCWCD as well. It would seem that an update to this exam should be forthcoming, but as I said, there really hasn't been much of an indication.
