Thanks man. I will give it a reading.

Hello everyone,

I have to admit - after reading RMH and MZ's Study Guide, I am still confused as to how faults are converted into Java exceptions. I mean, what kind of faults get converted to what types of exceptions both on the client and the server side. I have read about JAXRPCException and SOAPFaultException but dont understand what is thrown where and how it should be interpreted on the client side and server side. There is not enough coverage on this topic in either of the books.

Could anyone please explain a little about this or direct me to any articles/books that explain this topic in more detail ?

Thanks,
Sonu
Hi Guys,

For anyone who has takne the exam - can you please let us know if the kind of questions we get in the actual exam are on par with MZ's quiz or the Whizlab questions or simpler / harder than both ? I am done with my preparation but when I was going through MZ's quiz, I observed that he was asking certain API level questions and the details of various aspects.

Does the exam go into such API details more or is it more or less theory oriented ? Also, how are Whizlab exams when compared to MZ's quiz ? I have seen a few threads comparing both but Whizlab received a few negative remarks.

Please suggest so that I can concentrate accordingly for the last few weeks.

Thanks a lot.

Hi Rashmi,

Guessing by your recent question, I am assuming that you are almost done with your preparation and that you are taking the WhizLab exams as a practice. I am midway thru my preparation and wanted to know how deep the simulator was questioning on the JAXR topics. As you might know, the topic covered in the RMH book (chapters 16-19) is pretty dull and boring.

Thank you for the help.

Hello guys,
While reading the RMH book, I had the following questions. As always, any help is greatly appreciated.

1) In the RMH book, under Section 22.3 (Deploying JSEs), it was mentioned at one place that :

QUOTED : "Although the contents of the root and its subdirectories are accessible as URLs (once they're deployed), the contents of the META-INF and WEB-INF subdirectories are not publicly accessible�they may be accessed only by the container system and the Web components themselves."

In the next para, it was also mentioned that

QUOTED : "The WSDL documents, in this case bookquote.wsdl, are placed in the WEB-INF/wsdl subdirectory. At runtime, the wsdl directory can be accessible to Web service clients directly. For example, you could access the bookquote.wsdl at
http://www.Monson-Haefel.com/jwsbook/wsdl/bookquote.wsdl."

Arent the above two statements contradicting each other ? How can the clients that are outside the container have access to a WSDL document stored inside a WEB-INF folder of the web application using a direct URL ?

2) Under Section 22.2.3 (JAX-RPC Mapping Files), it was mentioned :

QUOTED : "Remember that a WSDL document can define several different port and binding definitions that may share a common portType. Without a JAX-RPC mapping file it can be difficult to determine which WSDL port a J2EE endpoint is associated with."

I have always been confused about this statement ? Could anyone please let me know under what situations we would have multiple port and binding definitions sharing a common portType ?

Thanks,

Guys,

I am in the process of preparing for the exam and had a few questions about JAXR with respect to the exam. I did search the forums to see if there were similar posts but couldnt find many and so had to post a new one.

1) RMH Chapters 16-19 which cover JAXR in detail seem to be pretty dull and dragged out with a lot of API specific stuff. Could anyone please suggest if any particular sections of those chapters are relevant to the exam ?

2) With the vast areas that need to be covered, I am guessing there is no way in the world I can remember this stuff without practise. Did anyone use Apache-Axis inside Weblogic server for practice ? Especially using JAX-RPC, SAAJ and JAXR within Weblogic.

3) I heard that JAXB is also part of the obectives and two articles were listed from onJava site. Is it enough if we go through them as a reference or do we need to go into the details in any book ?

4) Which chapters of BluePrints (by Inderjeet Singh) are specific to the exam ?

Thank you for all the help in advance. My target date for the exam is around the end of June :roll: Anyone else who is preparing to take the test in that timeframe can contact me so that we can exchange some knowledge and questions.

Could anyone please let me know if there is a good article or book on implementing a robust EJB application with a Role Based architecture ? I need to develop a complex application where users in particular groups have distinct functionalities and I need to control those functions in the menus that I display to the user...We are using an LDAP server to maintain the user and group information and Weblogic App server.
Thanks...
Hello guys,
I am using Eclipse 2.1 for my development where I have multiple
projects. I have an ANT script to build and deploy the application to
Weblogic 7.0. The problem however is that when I do any changes to
JSPs, I need to re-build, deploy and restart Weblogic to see my
changes reflected....Restarting weblogic every time I change my JSPs
is becoming a pain as it takes about 3-4 minutes everytime...
Using WSAD was really easy as the Websphere Test Environment was
recompiling any modified JSPs while the WTE was up - no need of
restarting if I just change JSPs....
If anyone has faced a similar problem, please let me know how to go
about solving it....
Would switching to JBoss + Tomcat with Eclipse help me ?
Thanks,
Sonu

Please let me know.

Hello all,
I am in a fix whether I to hold onto this particular book or to
return it. After reading a few chapters, I didnt get the feeling that
the authors havent covered the topic in depth. I dont know whether
the exam itself covers topics superficially or if it is just this
book. Has anyone found this book useful to a great extent ?
Anyone who has prepared using this book and attended the Part 1 exam -
please advise...

Hello all,
I am in the process of preparing for the Part 1 exam and read a lot
of messages that suggested I read the "Java 2 Network Security" book
for Security part of the exam although no one suggested which
chapters I should concentrate on....
Could any one please suggest which chapters from that book are
relevant for the exam ?
Thanks for the help.

Sonu
