What is the Best Oracle Java Web Services Certification Book?
Unfortunately there isn’t a book, which can be read as the only one source for preparation. Java Web Services: Up and Running is a book to start learning web services. Some fundamental info can be gathered from its security chapter. Jersey User Guide 1.17 can be used to learn rest web services. Read XML, SOAP and WSDL, JAXP chapters in J2EE Web Services. Although XML and WSDL aren’t required for passing exam, it is good to be acquainted with their basic elements. Go through OCEJWSD 6 Notes by MZ. SCDJWS 5 Notes by MZ and SCDJWS 5 Notes by Ivan A Krizsan are great sources as well. They are written for the previous exam, but some chapters (as for example Security), can be used for preparation to OCEJWSD 6. The JAX-WS spec should be read too.
