I am studying for SCWCD 1.4. I am currently using the Hanumut Deshmukh book, which is 1.3, but I have the Head First book preordered and will be reading it as soon as it arrives.

Right now I am concerned about the vast amount of XML tags I am coming across. Do I really need to have the DTD for web.xml memorized? Will I be asked about the proper order for tags?

You don't need to memorize everything. Focus on the portions of the DD that are mentioned in the exam objectives. Remember names and order and you should be fine.

Hello Robert!

There is a sample web.xml given in the Hanumant's book in the last section. It will help you study the web.xml well. Read it 4/5 times to get a hang of it.

Cheers!

Hello

I'm in preparation of the exam,

I think you will need to know:

The following elements are very easy, they are not explicitly mentioned
in the objectives. Perhaps you need it:

description, display-name,icon (with subelements), distributable,

I think following elements are important for the exam: I do not mention
the subelements.

context-param, filter, filter-mapping, servlet, servlet-mapping, listener,
session-config, mime-mapping, welcome-file-list, error-page, jsp-config,
security-constraint, login-config, security-role.

I think you need not to know the following elements:

env-entry, ejb-ref, ejb-local-ref, service-ref, resource-ref, resource-env-ref, message-destination-ref, message-destination,
locale-encoding-mapping-list
