I'm planning to take exam
SCWCD 1.4 and wondering about the Servlet and JSP specification versions

1.Which Servlet and JSP Specification version should be referred?
2.Is there any other Specification(s) one has to be familiar with?

This is just for reference purpose only.

Hi Bryan,
I didn't see the SCWCD1.4 exam number on the cover page of the book.
Was it intentional?

Maybe that's why some of the bookshops I went to didn't stock in their "certification" section...

Howdy -- it *does* say it on the cover, but you have to look closely

On the right side of the cover next to the girl's head, it says,

"Written by the co-developers of the real SCWCD exam of J2EE 1.4"

I think we should have made a bigger point of that, and put it in the subtitle which says, "passing the Sun Certified Web Component Developer Exam".

We've found that book stores are usually very inconsistent in whether they stock the books under "certification" or under "java". We'd prefer they keep them in Java, since they're not only for people studying for the exam, but it gets confusing.

cheers,
Kathy

I think what Nagaraju meant was the sun code for the exam (310-081) isn't on the cover (so it is easier to confirm that you are looking at SCWCD 1.4 certification as opposed to 1.3 - hey, but then why not put SCWCD 1.4?!).

I found mine in the Java section To be honest, it was only *after* I bought it that I noticed there *was* a "certification" section in the bookshop!


I think we should have made a bigger point of that, and put it in the subtitle which says, "passing the Sun Certified Web Component Developer Exam".

I agree - I think you might capture a few more sales from people looking to take the exam, who don't realise that they can use HFS for this. One for the cover of the 2nd edition, perhaps? Of course, if they'd done their research or even glimpsed at this forum, they'd know...

Maybe that *subtitle* should be placed like what HF EJB does.

I noticed that book because I saw that subtitle, and then I decided to buy it and went for SCBCD.
