Subject: [SCWCD] Passed with 86%


I passed the exam today with 86%. I started from ground zero about 5
months ago for the exam. So my resources include
1) O'Reilly's Java Servlet Programming - 2nd Edition
2) Wrox - Professional Java Server Programming J2EE 1.3 Edition(VERY
3) Ken's guide from Java Ranch (EXCELLENT for last minute)
4) Servlet 2.3 specs ( I didn't have time to read JSP 1.2 specs).
In my honest opinion, reading 2) and 3) above is just about enough
for anyone to pass the exam. But if you are looking for a good score,
all 4 are necessary. 1) gives a good foundation on Servlets in case
you don't have one.
One stupid question that came in the exam was "What is the element
name used in the TLD to name a tag?". And there was a text box to
type the answer. Till the last minute, I keep fluctuating between
<tag-name> and <name>. Finally I wrote <name> and it turned out to be
the right answer. I think it is a really stupid question as it
focusses on "memory test" rather than understanding concepts. And to
think they themselves modified so many element names in 1.2 like
making <tagclass> into <tag-class>, <bodycontent> into <body-
content>, etc. Can anyone tell me how remembering tag names that
fluctuate from version to version proves that one is a very good web
component developer??
Another frustrating but interesting question was the life cycle of a
JSP page. On the left were 7 draggable boxes and on the right were 7
drop targets named step1, step2, step3,...step7. To answer the
question, you drag a box from the left and drop it on the correct box
on the right. MY DRAG AND DROP JUST WOULDN'T WORK!! I knew the
correct answer sequence but the moment I dropped something it would
just refuse to be dropped and bounce back to its original position. I
found that very frustrating. Then finally, I used precision
dropping..that is, align the boxes VERY PRECISELY and then drop it
when the drag icon changed to a drop icon. That worked. Phew!
Overall, the test was very interesting and focussed on specifics. I
found more questions on JSP than on servlets or maybe that's my
feeling. Questions on design patterns were very simple and straight-
My next focus is, of course, to complete the Enterprise Architect
certification but that will be after 6 months. I personally don't
think getting lots of certification without relevant work experience
achieves anything. In fact, there are times when it could go against
I will stick around for some more time in case anyone needs help.

I am not sure if this is still true:
I was getting 100% after taking them three times.
Where can I get the free and complete workbooks as the author promised?

The correct answer should be B. You can try it youself.
Convert web application from Tomcat from Websphere
Does anybody have any information on steps to convert a web application from Tomcat from Websphere?
Thanks in advance

Is there a free EJB container like Tomcat?
Afsah Shafquat,
The discussion here has been way out of the topics of this group.
Further discussion would better be moved to the "Meaningless Drivel" of this site where you or whoever is pretending to be this little kid, would got more attention there.

I believe a software license just like a sun exam voucher. It is transferable, but only one person can have the license at any time. That�s why one can find used software stores (not many, but there are).

Passed today with 86%, not great, but acceptable.
I am a little bit upset about the quality of the questions compared with SCJP.
There are few ambiguous questions. One of them asking to fill in part(s) of a JSP statement, but did not specify how many parts and which part.
One drag and drop question. The question is very easy, but one of the items just won�t drop.

One question involve a long code, the exhibition button can only display half of it.
Anyway, a pass is a pass.
Thank you all!

Look like WebLogic 6.0 does not support Java JSP API 1.2 yet.
You can use EVAL_BODY_TAG for now, which is deprecated as of Java JSP API 1.2.

Try to replace /*.jsp with *.jsp in <url-pattern>.

Try to return EVAL_BODY_BUFFERED in the method doStartTag.
