I know hibernate in good fashion, so i don't find any good in scbcd.
What all basic knowledge is required for scdjws?
And where can i get the exam objectives.
You don't need SCBCD for the Web Services exam but SCJP is a requirement. The exam objectives are available at the certification page.
This exam has more focus on general understanding than API usage. You can expect questions on basic concepts (e.g. SOAP vs. REST), supporting technologies, like SOAP and WSDL in a high depth, XSD questions and scenario-based decision, e.g. which technologies to use with the given scenario. For the API part, expect some XML handling (DOM, SAX, StAX, JAXB), JAX-WS and JAXB annotations, maybe some JAXR. Also count with questions on how JAX-WS integrates with other technologies, like EJB and Servlet. I used Ivan Krizsan's study notes and I highly recommend them for preparation.
