I passed the J2EE WebServices Developer Cerification Exam.

This has been one of the toughest Java exams that I've passed. With the growing popularity of Service Oriented Architectures, I felt this was a quick way to jump on the bandwagon. Here are my 'words of wisdom'.

This study guide was very useful. But you need a good grounding in Web Services before you you this guide. You'll get that from the book below.

Study the Basic Profile 1.0 well. Quite a few questions came from here.

The Java Ranch forum on this exam also proved quite useful

I also studied extensively from Richard Monson-Haefel's book, J2EE Web Services shown below.This book is a must have for anyone planning to develop web Services in Java

A few more tips,
1. Richard who designed parts of the exam says that UDDI is boring. Take the clue and just know the basics and definitions. Do not get lost with the details.

2. This book does not cover the details of Web Service security like SAML, ACL, etc. The guide mentioned above does that.

3. Know the uses of SAX, DOM, JAXB, TraX.
