Hi All
Cleared the SCWCD with 89%. Thanx for all ur assistance. I have posted a topic in the Exam results section to share my experience.
Hi All
Cleared the SCWCD exam with 89% ( 53 correct out of 59).
The exam was easy, but i was not expecting any questions on Templete Pattern and Bimodal Data Access and probably lost 2 questions on that. Also, one question had incorrect options. I was asked to select 2, but only 1 correct option was provided, rest 4 were DEFINITELY incorrect. I didnt know how to report the problem. However, later i came to know that u can report the problem by clicking on the Comment button after u have finished the exam. Of course u cant change the answer but at least u can report the problem so someone else doesnt encounter similar problem.
As for preparation, i used Servlet and JSP specs, Java Servlet Programming by Jason Hunter, Professional JSP by Worx publications and a variety of notes from Miftah, Velmurugan, Ken and Alx. All of them were userful. And of course JavaRanch, as helpful as always.
Thanx everyone for all the help. Wish me luck for the next exam

Hi Alx
This is an exellent guide ( but i got it at the last moment, i m appearing for the xam tomorrow morning So wish me all the best )
There is one mistake in the guide, however. U have mentioned the servlet mapping with <servlet-url> instead of <url-pattern>.
Thanx Tong
But i never came across any questions in the mock exams. Did u ? Or is it a neglected topic ?
Some one told me to study all the patterns used in PetStore. But i think u should not ignore - MVC,Business Delegate,DataAccessObject,Value Objects, Front Controller and Session Facade. In most of the mock exams, i have come across these patterns.
Do they ask questions on the TLD file and its elements ? If yes, what kind of questions can i expect ?
As per Servlet 2.3 specifications, there is a doHead method to handle the Head request. However, the book Java Servlet Programming states that when a doHead method is requested, the service method modifies the response object to suppress the body content and forwards the reqest to doGet method. Any ideas on this one ?
How do servlets behave in a distributed environment ? As far as i understand, there is one default JVM which will handle the requests for the servlets in a web application. If it is unable to service the request, only then the request is forwarded to another JVM. Correct me if i m wrong.
What is the order in which the filters are registered and invoked, if there are more than one filters for a web app ?
