The taglib DTD for JSP 1.2 is significantly different from JSP 1.1. For the exam, do we have to learn just the JSP 1.2 or do we need to also know the difference between 1.2 and 1.1.

You will probably have to know the 1.2 version. I don't think there are going to be questions like "what is the diff between 1.1. and 1.2 with respect to..."
The text PROFESSIONAL JSP, 2nd ed. says that the new features with 1.2 are the new IterationTag which makes it easier for custom tags to iterate over their contents, and a two new validator classes that allow tags to self validate in a custom fashion...

The only caution I would give here is ensure you know the depricated methods and members in JSP 1.2. If Sun follows suit with the SCJP exam, a depricated method or member could be listed but, isn't one of the correct answers!

Ah yes! Was that the Thread.stop() method by any chance?
