Hi Jeanne,

It is nice to see you are in this forum too. Thank you so much for the explanation.

I am confused with "done < $1". If taking away "< $1", would the code still work properly? Could anyone please explain this to me? Thanks.

There are people, who took the exam and passed, did not go through JSP spec, me being one of them. You can read the stories of those who passed in this site. Mock exams should have enough examples to get you familiar with it. I'd suggest that you go through JSP spec 2.2 yourself if you have time and want to be extra careful. Good luck.
Not too many questions in Servlet 3.0 for OCPEJWCD 6 exam that I took. If you master HFSJ, you should have great chance to pass. That being said, you still need to be familiar with Servlet 3.0 spec.
The next is to get a job. I was a software developer for over 14 years. I quit six years ago, and became a caregiver to my father until he passed away last year. Now I have to re-enter the market. In order to prove that I am still able after six years absence from programming, I took a couple of certificates exams, and hopefully that would land me a job. Thanks for asking.

Thanks. I spent two and a half months preparing for it.

Hi Ben,

For some reason I could not access this site for a few weeks until now. I did pass the exam with 85% a week ago. So with the materials that you have now for studying, it should be sufficient. Good luck.
Passed OPEJWCD (1Z0-899) with 85% a week ago.

I used HFSJ 2nd, Spec 3.0, Enthuware, and mock exams from Piotr Nowicki, Niko, and this site. Thanks for the help I got from this site, like Jeanne, Bear, Fabian Angy etc, and especially, Enthuware support Paul.
I didn't do any line of coding due to time constraints. I might have gotten higher score if I did some hands on coding.

I am planning to take the exam the end of this month. I use HFSJ 2nd, Servlet spec 3, and Enthuware. If I pass, then that should be enough.
Actually, <%@ page import=”java.util.List” import=”java.util.ArrayList” %> is considered "technically correct". I found this out when I was doing Enthuware tests. See the explanation below:

"Technically, an import attribute can occur multiple times in a page. It is clear that it is valid to have multiple page directives with import attribute. However, it is not clear from the specification whether import attribute can occur multiple times within the same page directive. Ideally, specifying the same attribute twice in the same directive should cause translation error. However, some containers are forgiving and accept it as valid.

Here is an old bug report for Tomcat that you might find interesting : https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=4022"

The above is quoted from Enthuware.
Paul,
I really appreciate you spent time to help me with all my questions.

Paul,
Thanks for the response. When I contacted in your web site, I put the question id in title area and my explanation in msg area. I left my email address and checked the check box for a copy to be sent to my email. I did received all two msgs I sent in my email. Could you check to see if you receive those two msgs, each with question id as title. If not, I will do it again. Thanks.
