Is there any official study material for the WSD exam?

I have been preparing for OCE WSD exam for a few months now but so far could not find a single official document from Oracle regarding the contents of the exam. It would be interesting to know why, yes really WHY have they not published any official document like they have done for several other exams? They have not even published the topics in detail, all of which are only one liners so leaves one confused about how much to read, how many specs to go through and what things to keep in mind? They did a great job with the OCP book but strangely they have not done the same for the WSD exam. Why? I would be grateful if someone can answer they "Why" above and point me to an official document?

Have you checked this out? Scroll down to the fourth last post, https://coderanch.com/t/591523/certification/Java-EE-Web-Services-Developer

I don't know anymore than that.

Yes that is the only place where you find some details regarding the exam topics but it is not an official source. Many thanks for the response.

Hello Ibne Masood,

I am also preparing for the 1Z0-897 exam.

Perhaps we can learn together and discuss our problems?

Are you interested in?

Best regards,

Uwe

Hello,

Thanks for the offer. I took my exam last Friday and passed it
I would recommend the notes by MZ both version 6 and 5 and then the enthuware tests by Frits. Make sure you read the specs/JSRs etc. as mention in other threads.

Hi Ibne Masood,

congratulation for passing. Very good. Perfect.

Well, I am still prepering and it will take a while :-)

Do you have some documents? Perhaps same sample code that goes deeper?

This would be great!

Best regards and thanks in advance,

Uwe
