You're back from JavaOne, with buzz words of cool new technologies you heard about still ringing in your ears. Here you are sitting at your desk, thinking about all the cool stuff you wish you could learn.
Well, there is HOPE.
To add to the list of courses being offered in the Web Services learning path , is an offering on XML and Web Services security (DWS-4120-EE5) being offered in the Java EE track.
Estimated to be on the training schedule mid June. Stay tuned!
Watch this space.
What will I learn?
As part of the course, you will learn to :
- Identify the need to secure web services
- List and explain the primary elements and concepts of application security

For those of us who are tutorial-challenged and find it boring to go through lengthy manuals or tutorials to learn something new, a screencast or a writeup with pictures is a life-saver.
