Hi,

I plan on taking the SCWCD exam in December. After taking the exam, I planned to build my own web application for practice (beyond the small apps covered in HFSJ). I want to build this web app in a manner that's it comparable to web apps built in the "real world". So I believe I need to go beyond what is taught for the SCWCD exam.

What would be your recommendations to make this happen?

I do plan to take the SCBCD exam sometime in the first half of next year since SCWCD and SCBCD are often linked together. For my exercise I will not be using EJB's though.

For example would it be important for me to learn Struts and/or JavaServer Faces frameworks. How about Javascript, CSS, and HTML?

Which additional technologies and concepts would an employer typically expect from a web developer that uses Servlets/JSP?

Yeah, I am kinda trying to do the same thing. And I am learning struts right now... after struts there is EJB, Web Services, Hibernate and then finally Spring and other little things. Database is obviously a huge part of every real enterprise application... We are both still long way to go! Good luck. By the way, a lot of places may not require you to know them all, but certainly a lot of the technologies unless you are looking for a junior position. You can always look for jobs in job site and see what technology they are looking for.
