Hi,

Are EL functions included in SCWCD5 objectives? At least from looking at the objecvites page at SCWCD objectives, that doesn't seem to be the case. All I see related to EL in the objectives is the following:

Section 7: Building JSP Pages Using the Expression Language (EL)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Given a scenario, write EL code that accesses the following implicit variables including pageScope, requestScope, sessionScope, and applicationScope, param and paramValues, header and headerValues, cookie, initParam and pageContext.
Given a scenario, write EL code that uses the following operators: property access (the . operator), collection access (the [] operator).

As you could see this doesn't mention anything about EL functions. But the HF book covers EL functions. Does someone (particularly those who took the SCWCD5 exam recently) confirm if EL functions are included or not?

Thanks.

It used to be there:
Exam Objective 7.4
Given a scenario, write EL code that uses a function; write code for an EL function; and configure the EL function in a tag library descriptor.

It seems they have shortened the objectives..... and lots of them are not there anymore. I have a feeling that they still ask the questions though.... It is better follow HF in this one to be sure

I did my exam last year and EL functions were there!

Regards,
Frits

I took the SCWCD 6, but the EL function questions were definitely there.
