Hi All,

First of all thanks to java ranch for the last 2 yrs of support for helping me with the questions and answers which helped me achive my goals..

I just compleated my SCDJWS (Sun Certified Developer for Java WebServices) exam with 82 %, the credit also goes to java ranch and the forum members to get me this.

But now i am aiming for SCEA exam but does it help and how ?

Thanks and regards,
Prakash C Sah.

SCJP 83%, SCWCD 86%, SCBCD 88%, SCDJWS 82%

Does the SCDJWS help with the SCEA?

In my judgment precious little though somebody like Theodore Casser (who still seems to frequent the SCEA forum) may be able to give you a more accurate assessment.

You have to understand that the SCEA certifies you as an "Architect for a J2EE distributed component architecture" not for "distributed services". You may have to accommodate an XML-RPC interface to a vendor external to your overall design but that's about it. EJB features heavily in the SCEA because of this "component"-orientation. Part 1 is limited to EJB 1.0 - though you can use a current version (Java EE 5/EJB 3.0) in your design for Part 2. However if you try to sneak in a web service into your design you better be able to justify it - otherwise expect to lose some points due to the (unnecessary) additional XML marshalling/unmarshalling overhead.
I also suspect that even an updated (Java EE 5/EJB 3.0) version of the SCEA would still be heavily component-oriented (though you may have to deal with a SOAP interface (instead of XML-RPC) to an external vendor).

In case of an update to the SCEA you would have to deal with JAX-WS 2.0 � the SCDJWS certified you (only) for J2EE 1.4 Web Services (JAX-RPC 1.1, etc.).
