Hi all,
My boss has asked me to research taking one or more cbt's for training, as our training budget won't cover a class. I've looked around on Google and found a lot of overpriced or marginal material, so I thought maybe someone here could provide a recommendation? I have a SCJP 1.2, most of my work now is J2EE based, I could use some advanced XML or web services training. I'm not averse to SCWCD material, but it's not necessarily my primary focus. I just don't want something that explains the basic material, which I already know, I'm looking for more and not finding much.

Thanks in advance,
Alex

Why don't you try the tutorial provided by Sun? It is pretty cool to brush up your skills and they have a J2EE tutorial as well which explains JSP, Servlets, JMS, Webservices JSF etc with examples...

And it is free...

I had that same idea, but unfortunately, my boss would rather have something in his hand from a third party that says I completed it rather than taking my word for it, regardless of how good the training is.

thanks,
Alex
