I have noticed that Design patters get lots of attention in the SCWCD 1.4 exam. Are the design patterns targeted specifically for web app development (MVC, Front Controller, DAO) or will they include core Java patterns (like the singleton and javabean)?

Thanks!

Design patterns are crucial for developing any application. So the SCWCD exam rightly focusses on six important J2EE specific
patterns such as Model View Controller, Intercepting Filter, Front Controller, Business Delegate, Transfer Object and Service Locator
which are often used in enterprise applications to solve design issues.

Gotcha, those six and no additional ones. I also got (from another thread) that you will give 25 questions over 5 tests. This seems much lighter than I expected on the test.

How deeply would you suggest to prepare for the design patterns portion. I have Core J2EE patterns which briefly describes the positive/negative of each. I also have access to Applied Java Patterns which gives code samples of each. I'd like to write each pattern in code, but not sure if thats going too deep for the test.

Thanks!
