How different is the Struts framework from programming standard components as learnt from this Certification ? Or does learning Struts follow naturally from the first ?
Thanks

Struts is a framework built on servlet api. It therefor hides much of the knowledge you need to pass scwcd.

This is true, but learning Struts will help in understanding some of the patterns mentioned for the exam. This may be a better excersize after passing the exam because there probably aren't many questions that will touch on patterns.

struts builds on the mvc pattern, which is in this exam, be it marginally. Therefore, do this exam first, then concentrate on the next step

I had some serious reservations about Struts 1.0. However, most of these have been addressed by the new Struts 1.1 (currently in second beta). Although some architectural critiques can still be levelled at it, its benefits in day to day practice are hugely impressive. Greatly recommended as your next step after certification.

I searched objectives of the SCWD exam for "strut" and could not find. What objectives it is inside?

Thanks GV. If this had been a "how does Struts work" thread, it would've been closed. However, it seems to be more about "how does Struts relate to the SCWCD exam" and that is not a clearly inappropriate topic for this forum.
For a long and prosperous life as a bartender, it's best to be non-interventionist in ambiguous cases. After all, this is a Wild West themed community and some folks may be trigger happy
