Yesterday I made the appointment for the exam at the end of july and I am sure to fail.

My preparation:
- "JavaServer Faces 2.0, The Complete Reference" by Ed Burns and Chris Schalk
- "JSF 2.0 Specification" by Oracle
- "Java Tutorial JEE6" by Oracle
- "JavaServer Faces 2.0, Ein Arbeitsbuch für die Praxis" by Bernd Müller
- "JavaServer Faces 2.0, Grundlagen und erweiterte Konzepte" by Michael Kurz and Martin Marinscheck
- Thanks to Paul for sharing his wiki.

I will be glad to correct my post, perhaps :-)

Thank you Frits.

I can't stand it any longer. I want to see the questions by oracle during the exam. So I made the appointment.

I prepared the way I was able to, but there is no way to check my knowledge except the exam.

It is said, that the mock exam by myexamcloud is not really significant and far away from the real exam. Well it is the only mock exam, which is available.

I will tell my result ... :-)

You'll fail with that attitude! Keep one point in the lower abdomen and study meditate.

Hello together,

today I failed the exam with 63%. Here my experiences:

1.) I run out of time. At first , after the first 3 questions, I thought I will pass :-), because they were quite easy, but I was not able to read the last five questions, so i guessed. Sometimes the questions are rather long.

2.) Although I failed, I think it is possible to pass next time. I have made the appointment for the test to come familiar with the questions. I didn't know, what I was expecting

3.) There were at least 10 question concerning ajax with event ="blur" and "onBlur" !

4.) 5 questions dealed with selectMany... (selectManyCheckbox, ...) and how to provide it with selectItem(s).

5.) Estimated 5 question about navigation-rules (simple and hard ones), e.g. mentioning no from-view-id or a list of them seperated by ; and different ifs

6.) Two questions about view param issues

7.) Two questions about f:debug

8.) At least 5 questions with a given scenario where to choose the best scope (including flash and flash.keep)

9.) 5 questions about the lifecycle, e.g which phase will be skipped in a given scenario.

10.) Three questions about converter.

11.) Which is ruling: own validator or standard validator if both are mentioned

12.) How to use  facesContext.getExternalContext() (getUserPrincipal(), isUserInRole(String role),invalidateSession())



So best luck to anyone who will try the exam it in future.

Best regards,

Uwe

Sorry to hear you failed, but good luck on your next attempt!

You deserve a Cow for letting us know and sharing your experiences.

I know EPractice Lab has mock exams for JSF exam. But I don't know why Enthuware does not have mock exams yet.
I will keep my fingers cross for Enthuware's JSF mock exam.
I am sure you won't fail if Enthuware is available.

Thank you very much for the cow, Frits.

And I am sure, that Himai is right. With an Enthuware's JSF mock exam I would never fail. Enthuware stuff is a  guaranty  !!!

I appreciate it.
