Hallo everyone,

I�ve just got Sun Certified Java Programmer
My next step would be working towards getting Sun Certified Web Component Developer.

I don�t know where to start to prepare for the certification. I did work with JSP for a little while but I need to work more with it and practice.

Any suggested projects/tasks that I should do by my own in order to practice for the certification? Books?

I am thinking of installing tomcat and eclipse to practise. wouldn't be better to go for another IDE for the purpose of practise?

Thanks in advance,

I am using Head First Servlets & JSP along with the specs themselves to study from. So far I have been extremely impressed with the HF book, even though I have run into a couple of errata that have confused me (Check out this topic for example). Other one or two errors inthe book, I am extremely, extremely happy with it and would recommend it.

The book will also uses Tomcat and will walk you through a set up. Good Luck!
