Yesterday I past the OCEJWSD exam with 100%! I prepared very well, with Ivan A Krizsan study notes, Mikalai Zaikin notes, Java Web Services: Up and Running by Martin Kalin, documents referred by Frits Walraven in his post http://www.coderanch.com/t/624027/java-Web-Services-SCDJWS/certification/questions-Enthuware-simulator-OCEJWSD#2853123 and studyguides (webservice course) from Oracle University.This exam was totally different than SCBCD and SCWCD, since there is no complete book for this exam. Furthermore, the topics are very course grained..... typical SOA term. Anyway, for this exam you at least need to know something about:

WS-I
WS-I BASIC Profile 1.1
WS-IT (METRO)
Jason
xml
WSDL 1.1 every element & rpc vs document
PAOS

EJB (Singleton, Stateless)
Servlets (web.xml)
ejb-config.xml
web.xml
webservice.xml
wsit configuration file
wsimport
wsgen

I-Stack (JAX-WS, JAX-B, STAX, SAAJ, FAST INFOSET)
Message Leve Security (XML Signature, XML ecryption)
XKMS, XACML, X.509, XML Encryption, XML digital Signature
Transportlevel security (SSL, HTTP BASIC)
SAAJ
XML Parsers: SAX, STAX, DOM

JAX-RS ( resource & subresource)

Policies
Handlers
MTOM
WS-Addressing


Thank you guys Ivan, Mikalai, Frits (my ex colleague=) and all posting JavaRanchers!

Hi, S Poon,

You mentioned this "This exam was totally different than SCBCD", which is EJB developer exam now.

Is SCBCD (or EJB developer exam) a little bit easier than this web service exam?
Does EJB developer exam cover less topics than web service exam and seems a little bit easier?

Hi Himai Minh,

To be honest, SCBCD was very hard to learn. That was a time before annotation was even born.

EJB developer exam today looks easy, cover less topics indeed, but you have to know almost everything in detail, technical detail.Second, it is easier to learn since there are a lot of good resources available.

For me the web service exam is less technical compared to BCD and WCD. But you have to know, Webservices are HOT these days.

I would advice you to start studying EJB, try some tutorials... maybe add some web service annotations to try out, and figure out what you feel comfortable with.Both are excellent certificate to have. At last have faith in yourself, everything is difficult when not prepared.

Good luck!

Steven

I looked at the topics and number of questions.
Are they constant?
Can someone else who recently passed verify?

I mean
"Apply best practices to design and implement web services" : 12 questions
Has anyone who recently passed (or failed) the 1Z0-897, verify that they also had 12 question for the topic "Apply best practices to design and implement web services"

I think it would help if we knew which area carries more marks and which areas do not.

BTW congrats. 100% is wonderful.

Hi Titi Wangsa Damhore,
I have recently cleared this exam here and yes Apply best practices to design and implement web services topic has 12 questions. These questions mostly to test your understanding about SOA
