Hi !!!
Question about Wrox book (PROFESSIONAL JSP 2 nd Edition) and the Exam Objectives.
do we need chapters 12 (JSP and XML) and 13 (Data Access and JDBC) for the exam?

Thanks for any help

I don't have the Wrox book. But,
do we need chapters 12 (JSP and XML)
While I din't find the objective for this, from previous discussion here on the ranch, reading the comments of people who have taken the SCWCD, they have recommended reading JSP and XML.
Also known as JSP Documents. So, personally I would say go ahead and read this chapter also.

and 13 (Data Access and JDBC) for the exam?
Verify if this chapter deals with Data Access Object pattern (ojective 13).
Any other views please.....
Good luck.

Hi Cindy,
I have the book (but I am still on page 390) .
This book is more praxis-oriented. You know that its not a specialized exam-preparation book. For getting exam quickly the Marty Hall More Servlets might be more usefull. But I like it a lot, because it covers lots of ideas for the praxis (integrating JSP, JDBC), discussion of Struts framework, binary content, etc.
1. XML - JSP
The XML-JSP chapter mostly contains a case study and lots of pure xml stuff, which is NOT asked in the exam. I will read it anyway, because I think the wrox case studies are good.
The thing satya refers to starts at page 450 (XML Syntax for JSP1.2)

2. JDBC chapter
A quick overview confirmed that the chapter are some theory about JDBC, including some more advanced stuff like transaction management and connection pooling and I hope usefull case-studies.
The Data Access Object Pattern is not included in the chapter. U have to get it from the Sun J2EE patterns on sun website. (try to search pattern in this forum to get a link).
regards Axel
