SOA Using Java Webservices

Hello, I'm currently studying "SOA using java webservices", by Mark D. Hansen.

I like the book, but it's a shame I lack some formal knowledge on some subjects such as UDDI, XML schema, etc. The examples are nicely packaged for testing with ant/maven.

How helpful do you guys think this book is certification-wise? And which complementary reading should I be taking to prepare for the new SCDJWS?

Hansen's book is good for the Java APIS. However you still may need to supplement a bit with the JSR specs to cover the full range of the objectives.

For XML, XML Schema, SOAP, WSDL, JAXR RMH (J2EE Web Services) should still be good enough - it seems there is very little SOAP 1.2 content on the exam and I don't think they are even talking WSDL 2.0 yet. However you will have to update yourself with the WS-I Basic Profile 1.2 spec.

Have a look over this topic in any case:
