Hi Guys,

Need some help in choosing between the two versions of Java Web Services exam currently available today. Which version should be attempted? Is 5 going to become obsolete soon. Thanks

Hi!
I'd say that you do not have to be worried about the knowledge of any of the exams becoming obsolete. In fact, I feel that this is one of the best certifications Oracle has to offer in the Java area, since it does not only apply to Java but to any other language that want to use web services to interact with other systems.
In addition, I feel that system integration is not only interesting, but also something that will not disappear anytime soon - on the contrary.
Best wishes!

Some thoughts...

  • CX-310-232 is not yet available (see attached screenshot)
  • JEE6 exam is newer, has less JAXR :-) and fair amount JAX-RS questions
  • JEE5 exam is older, has more JAXR garbage and only 1..2 high level JAX-RS question. Plus JEE5 exam has more feedbacks and more study material.
