well everyone,
i just return from the exam. i'm still in the state of shock. i actualy got 98%.
so right now there's a huge mixe of feeling in my mind.
i'm terrible happy because even dought i've work very hard to pass this exam i didn't expect such a grade.
on the other my professionist side is driving me crazy, to know that i only had one question wrong and not being allowed to see what i made wrong it's truly a torture.
for those of you still preparing to make the exam
i would sugest you buy JWebPlus. Most the exam question were allmost identical to the one JWeb Plus has.
has for books i bought the sybex book and since i bought JWeb plus i also have the manning book.
i found the sybex book to be very bad, full of mistakes that might cause some confusion.
the manning also has some mistakes but nothing compared the sybex one. so i would recomend this one.
for those of you who plan on making the architech exam we will keep in touch for the others thanks for everything good luck for the exam.
merry christmas and happy new year
best regards

hi everybody,
i've been reading the sybex book for this certification and i have the following dought.
are this tag's correct :
<context path="/eshop" docbase="/" reloadable="true" >
i'm geting an error when startinhg up tomcat.
it doesn't seems to like the context tag.
i took a look at dtd and i didn't find this tag defined, does this tag realy exists or this another book error.
best regards

i everybody
i created 3 diferent tld teste1.tld, teste2.tld and teste3.tld exacly under META-INF.
i named the resulting the jar mytags.jar.
from what i can tell it's like this :
<%@taglib prefix="buga" uri="/WEB-INF/lib/mytags.jar" %>
this doesn't work, you can only use a direct uri to a jar if taglib.tld exists in the META-INF.
if you change the web.xml like this :
and of course change the following :
<%@taglib prefix="buga" uri="/xpto" %>
this doesn't work for the same reason i gave before.
but if u change each one of the tld's and include a
uri tag it will work like a charme becaus when tomcat load's the jar it automaticaly creates a taglib map for each tag.
for example :
adding this to the teste.tld
and then updating the tag directive
<%@taglib prefix="buga" uri="/xpto" %>
this will work i haven't tried it on any other application server so i can't tell if it's only a tomcat thing or no.
best regards
Luis Meira
Your right.
when i tested several tld in META-INF i had Specify <uri></uri> in the tld.
thanks for the correction.

I don't have the Manning book, but what you state here is essentially correct. There is a "but", though.

  • If in the deployment descriptor (web.xml) you map a taglib URI to a jar, the TLD used will be META-INF/taglib.tld in the jar.
  • By the same token, multiple TLDs in a jar only make sense if these TLDs specify a taglib URI so you can actually refer to them.

    hello everyone,
    i've been studying hard for the certification and right now i'm taking a closer look at the custom tags.
    after some carefull reading of both jsp 1.2 specification and the maning book i think i found a bug on the manning book.
    this book states that when you deploy a tag in jar you have to put the tld in the META-INF directory, and the tld must be called taglib.tld. according to jsp specification this is was true for the old specification ( JSP.7.2.1 ) on the new specification you can had more than on tld file in the META-INF.
    this means that you can deploy more than one tag for jar.
    best regards
