hallo, i have passed exam today (74%). some tips : -> I think you must know the DTD very perfect, as i got around 6 questions(confusing) related to DTD -> I gor 4 questions about wrting method, or interface (Fieldbox) -> 4 questions related to design pattern -> in servlet portion,i think you should be very perfect in API. -> jsp related questions were not so tough as i thought.There were 5-6 questions related tag taglib -> mostly questions were very confusing rather than tricky. I read some chapter from ServletProgramming (Hunter , old edition ) and some JSP tutorial,articles,specification ..... I am having more experience in JSP and less expereince in Servlet. As i am staying in Germany,i can enjoy only personal satisfaction Gruss sanjay
hallo, here DTD, i mean web.xml's DTD. As i told questions were more confusing not so tricky. questions like -> select which one is the not a element of X element -> you should know perfect syntax as in exam servlet-class,class,tag-lib,taglib element looks similar -> given some requirement,write a method name from some interface or class (no multiple choice) -> In design small case study was given and you have to select proper design. After 2-3 weeks i am going to release some questions on my web-site(www.indiansineurope.com) with simple CMS ,so that everybody can add or edit the question and answer.I hope it will helps others. Gruss sanjay
Patel: What is CMS? Ruijin: Although I have not taken the test yet, it is evident by the feedback (and published objectives) that we must learn the correct child-parent relationships between the XML elements present in the web.xml and the taglib.tld files.

hallo, CMS means Content Management System. ( here i was talking about simple script,but it is still part of our CMS ) for srini : i have prepared hardly 10 days for exam. I read some chapters from Hunter book(old edition), and i downloaded examples from new version and try to develop simple applications,you don't need to write big Servelt/Jsp. I read also some chapter from JSP Book (manning), and some articles/Tutorials from the web and Ken's note, i think it was useful for summerize the whole thing thanks to ken. It is better to study and to develop applications parallelly,it boost your confidence.Filter questions are mostly related to API. Gruss sanjay
Hi sanjay, when you say DTD means web.xml DTD, ru talking about Deployment Descriptor??? Are you saying that there were questions on DTD syntax like below: <!ELEMENT servlet-name (#PCDATA) > Do i need to cram dtds for the DD elements? i am really strucked. Thanks a lot in advanced. cheers pradi
hi, >when you say DTD means web.xml DTD, ru talking about Deployment >Descriptor??? yes >Are you saying that there were questions on DTD syntax like >below: ><!ELEMENT servlet-name (#PCDATA) > >Do i need to cram dtds for the DD elements? i am really >strucked. you must know the child-parent relationship for different element.(not type of element like #PCDATA....) Example : <required> is element of <attribute> not of <tag> or <taglib> I hope it helps you. Gruss sanjay
Sanjay, Thanks! Please inform this post when your website is ready with sample questions. That will be greatly appreciated! Few more questions: 1. Does the exam focus more on servlets or jsp 2. What is the best source to prepare for the patterns specific to Servlets and JSP (I think the Sun patterns section deals on all J2EE patterns- not just Servlets/JSP) 3. Any pointers/tips on the security section? THANKS! srini
