I think that in order to really get prepared for the SCWCD exam, you need to practice practice practice. So one of the only ways to work with servlets 2.3 and jsp 1.2 is to use Tomcat 4.0 (which is still in beta). So if anyone needs any information on how to get it, install it or use advance features ask it here.
Heres a start: Download tomcat 4 here -> http://jakarta.apache.org/builds/jakarta-tomcat-4.0/release/v4.0-b6/
good luck all ...
ps anyone plan on taking the exam 7/31 ?

What a coincidence, after I finish reading JavaRanch now I am going to erase Tomcat 3.2.3 and install 4 beta 6. It's quick download with DSL.
On the exam, I want to hear plenty of feedback before I take it myself.

Oh yes, Caucho's Resin app server supports the latest Servlet/JSP API and I think it's not beta:

Caucho's Resin app server should still be beta because the the J2EE 1.3, (servlets 2.3 and jsp 1.2) is still in beta (Proposed Final Draft) and is not in Final Release. Tomcat 4 - b6 is pretty stable and a lot of the new api's work like they're suppose to.

And it's a very easy install in Win32.
I only had to add CATALINA_HOME to the environment and presto!

Armand,
I have taken the beta exam and I have to admit that you don't need that much hands on experience. Playing around a bit is sufficient but very good spec knowledge is required. Sad but true (from my point).
