i think that also ch. 20 (SAX2) and ch. 21 (DOM2) could be useful.

Sure, thank you.

ch. 2 - 5 (XML, SOAP, WSDL)
ch. 9 - 15 (JAX-RPC, SAAJ, Message HAndlers, Mapping - WSDL /Java)
ch. 22 - 24 (J2EE Deployment, Descriptors, JAX-RPC mapping file)

Maybe others correct me.

Thank you for guidance.
I am planing to prepare for Web Service exam JEE6; I don't have experience with Web services,
it would be helpful, if someone can confirm if I need to read following from RMH for preparation of certification

ch. 2 - 5 (XML, SOAP, WSDL)
ch. 9 - 15 (JAX-RPC, SAAJ, Message HAndlers, Mapping - WSDL /Java)
ch. 22 - 24 (J2EE Deployment, Descriptors, JAX-RPC mapping file)

(I have avoided ch. for UDDI & JAXR.)


Self study does not fulfill the prerequisite

Is this certification not very popular now due to mandatory training from Oracle? Few of my fellow colleagues reached out to me in the last 6 months and were very disappointed after coming to know this mandatory training which seems to be overly expensive(Around $2000+ plus loss of work days). Overall it has made this certification around $3000+. We are yet to be fully recovered from the recession and almost 80% of the companies are not going to reimburse this amount for their employees.
So what are the options:
1) Oracle get rid of this mandatory training or make it affordable?
2) People go for other certifications - IBM SOA Architect etc....?

I have done this certification almost 13 months in US i don't see Java Architect job postings which specifically mentions - SCEA/SCEA5/OCMJEA required....i think less than 5% job postings mention it. Though within an organization SCEA/SCEA5/OCMJEA certified folks are treated with respect.

What's your say regarding this? How this certification can regain it's popularity?

I assume, classroom training is mandatory... see Fee in Canada (C$ 5150)
5150 + 1150 (fee for 3 (parts of) exam) = 6300 + 850 (tax) = 7150...

Reality check
Candidate needs to earn approx 9500 CAD pay its taxes on income and save 7150 to Pay for SCEA...

I wish to be SCEA someday...
