First of all, I would like to thank all the forum members for their guidance, suggestions and answers which helped me to clear OCDJWS 5.0 today. My special thanks to Ivan and Mikalai and their notes are really awesome, specially when there is no official guide available targetted for OCDJWS 5.0.

Coming to my experience about the test.

1) Minimum percentage for the exam is 42%, secured 76%.
2) Complexity = considerably tough, compared to SCJP (as I did not experience other tests)
3) Kind of questions = mostly usecase scenarios and recommended approaches, based on requirements.

There were several other questions, that deal directly with api like
1) How to parse xml using SAX
2) What steps are needed in JAXB usage.
3) How to handle SAAJ etc.

Ofcourse, do not forget to rememeber, BP conformance, SOAP, WSDL structures and some basic XML/XSD stuff.

As I mentioned above, high importance was given to recommended approach based on certain set of requirements, so try to concentrate more on those areas.

A week before the final test, I attempted the mock test (Mikalai's) and I was able to identify my gray areas and concentrated more on them.

Thanks to all the folks, once again and wish all the best for test takers.

After a brief pause, I will start working on SCEA, as I wanted to get that completed before August 1,2011.

Thanks

Hey Ravi,

Congratulations! You're the best!

Glad to know my WSD 5 quiz helped.

Best regards,
