Hi all,
I was told by somone who took the exam a couple of months ago that the exam covers the older JSP/Servlet specs( 1.1, 2.2).
But you site says it covers JSP 1.2 and Servlet 2.3. Does anyone know for sure which version is covered?
Also is there a big difference between the two versions? Did they change a lot?
Thanks in advance for any help,

The exam covers Servlets 2.3 and JSP 1.2.
The newer servlet API includes filters (not on the exam) and listeners (is part of the exam).
There are also changes in JSP (the Tags API, XML syntax, both on exam).
Most of the stuff is the same, but why would you study the old stuff?
