Its got to be the toughest Sun Certification I have done so far...but I managed to scrape a pass with 55%.

A lot of wordy/theory questions...not as many code questions. No drag and drop and no entering text.

Lots of questions on SOAP and WSDL make sure you know these topics. Also make sure you know low level datatype conversion issues for WSIT such as with gregorianCalender, etc. I didnt even know there was a WSIT config file - make sure you know how this works.

Make sure you know the methods on the SOAPHeader. Theory around security technologies.

Learn about packaging of EAR's and valid combinations of having multiple xml files in the EAR along with if and when appplication.xml is needed.

Good Luck All!

Congratulations !
Could you please share the information about versions of soap
and wsdl included with your exam ? It's still a topic of confusion.

Thank you
