Hi all,

Yesterday I passed for the exam. However, I'm not happy about the exam itself. There are to much errors in the possible answers you can select. Here are some examples:
I've got a question about classic tag handlers. A piece of code was given, and you had to fill in the missing lines of code of a tag that does some looping over the body. You had to select one of the four possible answers. All the answers contained a SKIP_BODY or a EVAL_BODY_AGAIN for the doStartTag?!

Another example where I had to select 2 required tags in the <web-resource-collection>. One of them was <web-resource-name>. The rest where non existing tags, so I selected <uri-pattern> which has to be <url-pattern>.

The result of this is that you start having doubts about the other answers in the other questions. People pay 150$ for an exam. At least you can expect for that amount of money is that you have an exam without errors. Anybody else had some experience with this kind of problems?

Best regards

Hmm, would doAfterBody() get executed if doStartTag() returned SKIP_BODY?

No way that doAfterBody() gets executed when doStartTag() returns SKIP_BODY.

Does anybody know if there's a way to report those errors to sun?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
