Passed Java EE 6 Web Component Developer with a 91% score. I thought it was easy if you already have experience.

I have over 8 years experience with servlets/jsp so I was able to prepare and take the test in less than 2 weeks. I read Head First Servlet & JSP, then the Servlet 3.0 specification. Also did all Enthuware exams and studied the JSP tags and JSTL.

Thanks for all the resources here!

Congrats, Tomas.
By the way, someone said these topics are not covered in the Head First Servlet and JSP book:

More options for the Model
Understand the roles of JDBC and JPA
Understand the many elements that make up the model
Understand fundamentals of connecting to a database using JDBC or JPA

Asynchronous web applications
Understand the interactions that are essential to asynchronous web pages
Understand the role of AJAX-style client side programming
Implement asynchronous servlets using the facilities of Java EE 6

Understand the role of JAAS in pluggable/extensible authentication for web applications


How do you handle these topics in the exam?

Hi Himai,

More options for the Model
Understand the many elements that make up the model

I got a question regarding exception handling in the model layer, which basically is to surround with a try/catch and handle it there.

Understand the roles of JDBC and JPA

I didn't get any of these, although you would only need to know how to either inject (@Resource) or define in the deployment descriptor, nothing else.

Asynchronous web applications
Understand the interactions that are essential to asynchronous web pages
Understand the role of AJAX-style client side programming
Implement asynchronous servlets using the facilities of Java EE 6


There were probably 3 or 4 questions on async servlets, basically how to configure them, the class name of the listener, and not much else. The questions were very similar to what you find in Enthuware exams.
The spec is very confusing regarding async servlets, they should probably rewrite that whole section.

Understand the role of JAAS in pluggable/extensible authentication for web applications


Did not find any JAAS related questions in the exam. I think JAAS in a Servlet container is more related to the container configuration/implementation than the actual deployed applications. I had no idea this is supposed to be on the test.

I knew most of the spec from work experience mostly, but it does help to read it and you always learn new things.

Hope this helps, even if a little, good luck! I'm preparing for EJB now, done a lot of work with it as well, see how it goes...

Thanks!

Hi Tomas,
Thanks for your details.
I just passed EJB exam four days ago.
You can visited the EJB forum to get an idea about that exam.
