Hi Ranchers

Recently I passed out SCWCD with 92%, thanks to Kathy, Bert and Bryan.

I want to share some exam tips to the ones heading for SCWCD.

For all SCWCD test takers, there is a mock exam list I am including in this posting. I spent a lot of time collecting the information about mock exams, so I have compiled the list here. I hope it helps.

  • Enthuware

  • http://www.enthuware.com/jwebplus/

  • Whizlabs

  • http://whizlabs.com/products/scwcd/scwcd-details.html
  • JavaPrepare.com (questions are topic wise)

  • http://www.javaprepare.com/scwd/quests/questions.html
  • JIRIS (1 mock exam 59 Questions)

  • http://www.jiris.com/online/page.do?p.t=1100922450054
  • Eduardo Cobian's mock exam (50 questions)http://www.javaranch.com/carl/SCWCD.htm
  • Sun Quiz (10 questions)

  • http://java.sun.com/developer/Quizzes/jsptut/
  • Certgear (21)

  • http://www.certgear.com/products/info/scwcd.htm
  • SRRehman(Simulator 59 Questions)http://www.geocities.com/rahmanjava/jpilotstore.html (Download JPilotTest Evaluation Version 1.0)

  • 5 Mock Testshttp://www.jdiscuss.com/



  • Exam Tips
  • There is plenty of time to take the exam so take it patiently
  • Exam is simpler than the mock exam given at the end of HFSJ
  • Choices are very direct. Since number of correct answers is already mentioned in the question, it makes the question easier.
  • read the "Head First Servlets and Jsp" thoroughly and it prepares you 90% for the exam.
  • Do not forget to read JSTL Documentation (on Sun site) + DTD for web.xml and tag library.



  • Good Luck to all SCWCD takers.

    - Megha

    Hey Megha,
    Congrats for your score!

    I am writing the exam this month end..
    I am preparing from HFSJ and offcourse Java Ranch.
    I am not so comfortable in custom tags. How are questions on custom tags appearing in the exam. Are they direct or just like the questions in HFSJ(tough)...?

    Thanks in advance...

    Hi Srinivasan

    I hope I m not too late to reply to your question.
    Well, questions on Custom tags were a li'l tricky but I guess HFSJ and the mock exams help you to get through those questions.

    I hope it helps.
    All the best.

    Hi Ranchers,

    Passed SCWCD(OCPJWCD), today(76%), tested at PearsonVue. Experience was good. Exam went on
    smoothly. Future aspirants may be glad to know that, found the SCWCD easier than SCJP. And much
    shorter(finished with 57 minutes left)

    Passed the exam thanks to HFS&J(KS,BB,BB), Enthuware, MarcusGreen, NikoJava, MikalaiZaikin,
    JavaRanch, the animated ppt about Listener interfaces, animated ppt about TLD file acronyms,
    each one of you guys mentioned here are great. Respect you for your work. Thankyou once again.

    For all SCWCD aspirants -
    1. Go through as many links as possible from the ScwcdMockTests here, and
    2. HeadFirstServlets&JSPs(2ndEdition) book.

    Hello Cristian,

    Good questions, thank you for asking !

    1. Answer to the first question could be,

    Nobody wins, (nobody allowed access)
    BUT, it is invalid to put two
    elements in the same

    2. Answer to the second question could be,

    In the TLD, you have


    In the jsp, you must have,



    Body is evaluated ONLY if(see lifecycle of Classic Tag),
    1. <body-content> is not 'empty' AND
    2. tag is NOT invoked with an empty body, AND
    3. doStartTag() method returns EVAL_BODY_INCLUDE

    1 and 2 above fail in our example.
    Body is not evaluated. doEndTag() runs,
    returns EVAL_PAGE(default).
    There is NO exception thrown.

    Hope am able to answer your queries !

    Hi Cristian,

    It is my pleasure to answer, .
    About <auth-constraint> :

    Got your query,

    With same <url-pattern>, but different <auth-constraint>
    1. access allowed ----- <role-name>*</role-name>
    vs
    2. access prevented ---- <auth-constraint/>
    Who wins ? 1 or 2 ?

    The winner is NOBODY. 2 wins.
    Access is prevented.

    Just some more info directly from specification:
    Servlet 3.0 Specification, 13.8.1 Combining Constraints

    The combination of authorization constraints that name roles or that imply roles via
    the name “*” shall yield the union of the role names in the individual constraints as
    permitted roles. A security constraint that does not contain an authorization
    constraint shall combine with authorization constraints that name or imply roles to
    allow unauthenticated access. The special case of an authorization constraint that
    names no roles shall combine with any other constraints to override their affects and
    cause access to be precluded.

    Hi Cristian,

    The ScwcdMockTests link at javaranch.com should be the best bet
    for latest links of Mock Tests. All links here are working and found
    (very)useful for that last minute testing yourself!!!
