Hello friends,

this morning I passed the SCWCD 1.4 exam.

My weakest results (under the limit of 62%) I got in the sections

building a custom tag library: 40%
building JSP Pages using tag libraries: 50%
building JSP pages using the expression language (EL): 60%

This tells me, where I didn't learn enough.

For my preparation I used the great SCWCD Exam Study Kit (the old edition from 2003, covering Servlet 2.3 and JSP 1.2). It mainly lacks JSTL, EL, Simple Tags, and some J2EE-Patterns. I know, now there is a new edition, but I saved the money and tried the exam without buying a second book.

Beyond this book I used only free (zero-cost) material, the Servlet, JSP and JSTL specs, and the free mock exams at jdiscuss.com.

If I would have learned more precisely custom tags, JSTL and EL, my result would have been nicer.

Next I will prepare for the SCBCD.

Best regards

Werner

SCJP 1.2, SCJD, SCWCD 1.4

72% is very good, with keeping in mind that the exam covers topics like patterns which probably should be out of the scope of the exam.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
