Congrats for being a pioneer and getting through the new JSP and Servlets exam.
I'm also hoping to do this exam in the next week or two. I have read HFSJ 2nd edition and the various specs, all the while playing around with some test web apps on Tomcat and Glassfish.
With the previous exam there seemed to be a heavy emphasis on a deep knowledge of the DD (web.xml).
Now with Servlet 3.0 it seems that there is an attempt to de-emphasize deployment descriptors, with a greater focus on annotations. With your experience of the exam do you think this is reflected? Or is there still a heavy emphasis on the DD for configuration in the new exam?
Of course one can always get a completely different set of questions in the exam to what you experienced. I'm just interested in the topics you encountered. ;)
Many thanks for any feedback.
