I have HF JSP & Servlets. It seems that i might need books on :

>EJB
>Design Patterns
>struts

Is the study of books on the following needed to gain better depth (not just for the exam) :

>HTTP
>Networks, TCP/IP
>UML


>>>did i miss anything ???

EJB and Struts are not a part of SCWCD exam. I'm not sure if in-depth knowledge of Http, Networking and UML would help you much with the certification exam but knowledge is always useful

No that is part of the business component (EE5), now stand alone EJB certification (EE6)


Design Patterns

Only the ones covered in the head first book


struts

Not really, but if it help to remember that struts is an implementation of the front controller design pattern



HTTP

You only need to understand the http methods described in the head first book


Networks, TCP/IP
UML

No

This is all based on the EE5 exam. I can't comment on the latest version of the exam.
