Servlet 2.3 and JSP 1.2 Resources

As we candidates to the Sun Certified Web Component Developer Certification know, the exam covers the almost-ready-but-not-yet official Servlet 2.3 and JSP 1.2 APIs.
This is interesting since technically, how am I supposed to take a test now on an API that "does not exist" yet
Well, we all know how it is.
As author Brogden said, this means that the Certification will have a longer shelf life.
If some of us are wondering where to find information on the new API, then I can say that the new edition (2nd) of the book http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0201709066/electricporkchop Inside Servlets has 39 pages on it.
As a matter of fact, this book is good even for beginners in Servlets and JSPs, IMO.
Another resource is the book http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/1861004958/electricporkchop Professional JSP, 2nd Ed.
One appendix has the Servlet 2.3/JSP 1.2 DTDs for web.xml and *.tld.
From the little that I have seen of the objectives, the deployment and specification XMLs are a big issue.

Jason Hunter's article on the new features of Servlet API 2.3 is available at JavaWorld. It covers the "proposed final draft" from October 2000, so I'm not sure how much has changed since. http://www.javaworld.com/javaworld/jw-01-2001/jw-0126-servletapi.html

Even the OReilly's Servlets 2nd edition has some nuggets of 2.3 spec spread throughout the book. Nothing exhaustive though.
