Hi Charles,

What are the web/application servers that you have taken reference while depicting the concepts of SCWCD?

Regards,
Kiran.

Since there are nothing do with EJB for SCWCD, you don't need to use application servers for this certification. And the SCWCD has no vendor-specific questions. So, you don't need to care about those vendor-specific stuffs like the web server used.

It's still interesting to know which container the author is using, and also if there is some explanation on how to make a simple Servlets/JSP setup.

Hi Devaka,
The question that Christoper asked is a valid one. As per my knowledge, Sevlets/JSPs has to be deployed(WAR file) in order to access them. There is only abstract mentioned in the book? No pragmatic implementaion? please let me know.
Regards,
Kiran.

You don't always need to deploy them into WAR files. Instead you can directly deploy them into the container. But yes, you need to know how to deploy them, how to start/stop the server etc. And it is vendor-specific.

The introduction to the book recommends either Glassfish v2 as a fully-fledged Java EE server, or Tomcat 5.5 as a Web container. But I don't walk through how to install those or deploy Web applications. As mentioned, that is platform specific, and the book is about content for the exam, not "Beginning Java Web Applications" or similar. So instead of walkthroughs on how to build/deploy applications, I'd rather place emphasis on core understanding, tricky bits to look for and 300+ test questions. There are plenty of books around for total beginners, and I recommend those because they encourage a slow-paced tutorial with plenty of examples to try. If we tried to do that on top of making the book suitable as a study guide and concise reference, well, it would be 1200+ pages and not very concise!
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
