I am new to this site. I read some of the postings and found excellant things happening around here..
I recently did my SCWCD with 83% and planning to do Websphere Test 158. I had little bit experience in Websphere.. Could someone help me to give tips to prepare for this exam in a week time..That would be great help
JSP, servlet, ...
If you pass SCWCD, you should already know quite well servlet and JSP specifications.
If you have already some knowledge of EJB, I would recommand you put the focus on the first book in IBM education resources:
Enterprise JavaBeans, 3rd Edition
By Richard Monson-Haefel
Publication Order Number: Published by O'Reilly & Associates; ISBN: 0596002262
Note: Read a thorough explanation of the EJB 1.1 specification, as well as designing and programming EJBs.
It's a nice book giving first good explanation on the why and then only details of code. For the certification 158, you don't really need details of code. 158 is only on EJB 1.1 and this book contains description of both 1.1 and 2.0. But the separation between the 2 is well marked in the book and you will have only to read half of the book for this current certification. Read it twice.
You must know perfectly:
Now if you don't have any understanding of J2EE yet, it would be better to start with the book of Marinescu (another IBM education resources but for test 483 - J2EE 1.2):
EJB Design Patterns
By Floyd Marinescu
Publisher: John Wiley
Download the pdf version of the book from (You may have to register to download): TheServerSide.com
Websphere And then, for Websphere questions, I recommand posts of other ranchers:
And of course don't forget to understand the answers of ICE test posted on this forum:
