Is anyone else as frustrated as I am......
I know I can't change the Specs...but wouldn't some reviewer think of these....

Also, <description> and <display-name> come in random order. Sometimes they are the first child element and sometimes they are in the middle or end.
I feel its very mean to Sun to expect us to remember all such things....

me too frustrated having to remember the order in web.xml.
I guess we don't get questions on the ordering of trivial elements. I'm concentrating on ersin's DD aid and nothing else. I dont care even if I miss few such questions.

Satya,
nearly everybody reports from the real test that we have to know the dtd of web.xml and of tld-file.
But will the questions be that nitty gritty. Is there a question that asks for example:
Will this work?
<web-app>
<small-icon>aIcon</small-icon>
<big-icon>bIcon</small-icon>
...
</web-app>
I dont think so. Do they even know?
Perhaps you became the world-leading expert in incongruencies of servlet/jsp-specs.

I believe that there is a danger to get lost in details. I really became frightened to code. Last night I had a good experience with adding reporting functonality to my to-much-scriptlet-in-jsp mockexam engine. But I am happy with the app. This is a powerfull technology. And I will introduce taglibs in next refactoring.
I will get voucher quite soon. I am not aiming at 100%

How about these two elements:
<!ELEMENT resource-env-ref (description?, resource-env-ref-name,
resource-env-ref-type)>
<!ELEMENT resource-ref (description?, res-ref-name, res-type, res-auth,
res-sharing-scope?)>
The names are so confusing

Raj:
For now, I am taking it easy on the less known elements like the resource-??? and the env-entry and the ejb-???

Good luck.

OOPS, I tried with GET. But I would expect the same result even with POST.
