Hi All,

I'd like to know if and to what extent I should learn about J2e architecture (including Servlets, JSPs and EJBs) for this exam. Any other information on where to start preparing, as I could not understand much from the recommended book Java Web Services Up and Running.
I passed OCPJP6.

I personally think the first edition of Java Web Service Up and Running is more helpful for this exam.
I read it twice and tried the examples in the book to understand the topics.

The starting point is this book.

But I also recommend the Java Web Service online course from University of California, Irvine, extension program. The class is not related to the exam, but gives you a general starting point to know the basics of the exam. It costs me $650 US dollar.

Servlets, JSPs and EJBs

Given the topic of this exam, none of that is relevant. Start reading at http://www.coderanch.com/how-to/java/ScdjwsLinks

Thank you all for the opinions. I think learning XML will be useful.

The syntax of XML won't be on the version 6 exam. But learning XML is important to understand SOAP.
You can read Ivan's study guide at :

Read chapter 1 about XML should be good enough to pass the exam.

Actually you do need to know something about EJB and Servlets for this exam. I wouldn't say it's not relevant for this exam, but you don't have to know everything on these.

Some topics for this exam:
Create an SOAP web service in a servlet container
Create a RESTful web service in a servlet container
Create a SOAP based web service implemented by an EJB component
Create a RESTful web service implemented by an EJB component


Since you passed OCPJP6, start writing some codes. Follow some tutorials about making a POJO webservice. Try to understand the generated WSDL and XSD. Try to test your POJO Webservice with SOAPUI, where you can generate SOAP messages. Learning XML, XSD and WSDL only, is like swimming without getting wet =)

Ivan notes, like himai minh suggest, is a great way to start. Google on tutorials, or read and apply examples in book Java Web Services: Up and Running.

Good luck!

Steven

Hey, I tried searching the link for the Web Service course but I couldn't find it.

You can find the web service online course description here:
http://unex.uci.edu/courses/sectiondetail.aspx?year=2015&term=Fall&sid=00235

This course is not related to this exam.
I took this introduction to web service course to learn the basics about SOAP and Rest.

Thanks buddy. Yes I read that. Perhaps not the preparation for the exam, but a great help for newbies who haven't worked with web service "like me"; taking a course on J2EE inspired me to get ready for OCJP since that course made my concepts clearer on object oriented programming, interfaces, etc.. I hope the course on web services is worth every penny, I will give it a thought. Thanks for searching for it.
