Hello Frits-Johan

I adquired a simulator for OCPJP7 from Enthuware in the past and I got a very good result, but I started studying serveral resources before to use the simulator.

Some questions
* I would like to know what books are good option to read.
* I would like to know How close this questions are? regarding the real exam
* What will be the price for this product and If there is the possibility to get a discount for the javaranchers who participate in these threads?

Thank you

Hi Jose Luis Iturbide,

Thanks for your question!

1) I would suggest reading: Java Web Services: Up and Running by Martin Kalin. Use that to get into web services.

The majority of the questions come from the documents below and I recommend you to study the important ones (in bold) and to read/browse through the other documents.
Java Community Process
JSR 067: JavaTM APIs for XML Messaging 1.3 (SAAJ 1.3)
JSR 109: Implementing Enterprise Web Services 1.3
JSR 181: Web Services Metadata for the JavaTM Platform 2.0
JSR 222: JavaTM Architecture for XML Binding (JAXB) 2.2
JSR 224: JavaTM API for XML-Based Web Services (JAX-WS) 2.2
JSR 311: JAX-RS: The JavaTM API for RESTful Web Services 1.1

W3C
SOAP v1.1
WSDL v1.1
Web Services Addressing 1.0 - Core

Web Services Addressing 1.0 - Metadata
Web Services Addressing 1.0 - WSDL Binding
Web Services Addressing 1.0 - SOAP Binding
SOAP Message Transmission Optimization Mechanism
XML-binary Optimized Packaging
XML Signature Syntax and Processing

Web Services Interoperability Organization
Basic Profile v1.1

Oracle
The WSIT Tutorial
Metro Web Services tutorial (WS-Security section, chapter 1)
The Java EE 6 Tutorial

Jersey - RESTful Web Services in Java
Jersey 1.17 User Guide (chapters 1,2,3,4,5)

Apart from that I suggest the notes from the ScdjwsLinks.

2) The questions from the mock exam should give you a good feeling of how the questions look like on the exam. The way of asking is similar, the type of questions are similar but they will never be copies (of course).

3) Good question
You can win a free copy this week if you ask me some questions!

Regards,
Frits

"Java Web Services: Up and Running" 2 ed is ok but I wish the source code didn't use ant to build it (this is 2013, who uses ant anymore) and the publisher didn't just dump a resulting 175 MB zip file in GitHub as in "hey, here's the src code; btw, it comes with every binary dependency that it needs".
I converted most of the code in the book to Maven projects and received the author's permission to push them on a branch on his repo. That is, as soon as I figure out the idiosyncrasies of git content sharing between 2 separate repos.

Hi Frits, I followed your suggestion and started with the "Java Web Services: Up and Running by Martin Kalin" book. I am through nearly 25% of the book and one thing that I have been trying to ignore but is now really bothering me that I get the feeling that the book uses some terms/annotations/topics without going into sufficient explanation. Often, I am left wondering about that. I have to google or look at other sources to find out. Over the last 20 days, I have been able to do only 25% of the book because I am having to look at other sources as well for the terms left properly unexplained.

I feel, it is quite important to have a good base book, esp. when you say this is a difficult one to crack. Could you kindly suggest any other base book? Thanks

Yes, well that is the general problem with Web Services, there are not so many up-to-date written books. There are a number of older books but there you should know what chapters to skip.

Check the ScdjwsLinks for additional information.

The Java Web Services: Up and Running book also only covers a small bit of what the exam is about. You need to read a lot of addtional specifications/articles/online materials and don't forget the notes of Mikalai and Ivan.

The exam topics of Oracle for the Web Services exam are not very detailed which makes it worse. Where you could pass the WCD, EJB and JPA exam with reading one specification (or one good book) you can't with the WSD exam.

Hi Frits,

I have gone through the scdjws link already. I am ok to refer to other sources too, but, out of all the books that you know, for the exam, which ONE book covers the most of the stuff relevant to the exam? For rest of the topics, I will refer to other books. This will help me have one base book to follow, even if it covers only 40% of the exam topics. Or is it better to follow one of the notes that you mentioned as the base reference?

I only used the Up and Running book and some small bits of the Richard Monson-Haefel book ( for some basics). For the exam take the Ivan, and Mikalai notes (both ee5 and ee6 notes) as basis.This won't cover everything. Use the additional resources I listed above.

When it comes to gathering the right materials this exam is quite frustrating. When I went for my exam I still wasn't sure I covered everything. ...

Hi Frits,


Cheers for the guidance.

As suggested on his website, I have emailed Mikalai, requesting both the EE5/EE6 versions and quizzes.

I have a copy of Ivan's EE5 notes from here:-http://www.ivankrizsan.se/my-books/" target="_new" rel="nofollow">Ivan's notes EE5

Is there is EE6 version too for Ivan's notes? Link please? Thanks
