Hi!
If you do not have any experience with XML, I would recommend starting with XML. A good understanding of XML and XML schema is essential for understanding web services.
Do take a look at the links here for additional recommendations: http://faq.javaranch.com/java/ScdjwsLinks
Best wishes!

You can study fundamentals with:

J2EE WebServices by RMH http://www.amazon.com/J2EE-Web-Services-SOAP-JAX-RPC/dp/0321146182/

And then brush up JAX-WS with:

Java Web Services: Up and Running http://www.amazon.com/Java-Web-Services-Up-Running/dp/059652112X

Hello, I suggest this material in the order it's listed

- XML/XSD specifications (rather in depth)
- MZ Study Guide and/or Ivan A Krizsan Study Guide
- WS-I BP 1.1 specification (must know it like if your life depends on it ;))
- WSDL/SOAP specifications
- MZ mock exams
- (bit of overkill) Sun free and non-free mock exams

Regards, Vincenzo

Hi PrasannaKumar Sathiyanantham,
If you only require to learn the technology and not have to give the exam then just go to the basic tutorial on http://java.sun.com/javaee/5/docs/tutorial/doc/gexaf.html
else for the exam lookup http://scdjws-beta.blogspot.com/

You will also find free study guides by Mikalai Zaikin on http://java.boot.by/scdjws5-guide/ and free quiz on http://java.boot.by/scdjws5-quiz/
and by Ivan Krizsan on http://www.javaforum.se/jforum/posts/list/549.page

Hi Mikalai

I understand that the RMH book deals with WS-1&J2EE 1.4. But the certification looks at WS 1.1 /SCJDWS 5.What chapters I need to omit in the RMH book and what remains good

Thanks

Ramakrishnan

Hi, Ramakrishnan !

You can select chapters by looking at SCDJWS 5.0 Objectives

NOTE: while SCDJWS 5.0 objectives specify SOAP 1.2 and WSDL 2.0 specification versions, the exam questions are still based on the SOAP 1.1 specification and WSDL 1.1 specification, so these chapters of RMH book are still good for SCDJWS 5.0.

Best regards,
MZ
