Hello everybody,

I have been a silent member of this forum. Yesterday (01/10/2005) I passed SCWCD with 82% marks . I know it's not a good score but I learnt lot of new things while preparing for this exam.

Any ways I would really like to extend my thanks to Bert, Bryan & Kathy for their superb book. I thank this forum too for giving an opportunity to all members to share their knowledge and learn from each other.

The way I prepared for this exam.
I read HSF twice and solved the mock exam from the book. Because of the time shortage I could not go through any specifications what so ever as well as any mock exams available over the internet .

Thanks again for the help.

SCJP 1.4

Please take a look at the Question #: 6 on the page 330 in HFS. The question is as follows

Q) <%@ page isELIgnored="true" %>
What is the effect (Choose all that apply.)
A) Nothing, this PAGE directive is NOT defined.
B) The directive turns off the evaluation of Expression language code by the JSP container in all of the web application's JSPs.
C) The JSP containing this directive should be treated by the JSP container as a well-formed XML file.
D) The JSP containing this directive should not have any Expression language code evaluated by the JSP container.
E) This page directive will only turn off EL evaluation if the DD declares a <el-ignored>true</el-ignored> element with a URL pattern that includes this JSP.


In my opinion based what is said on page 320 about enabling/disabling EL, I think the option D is the right answer. However according to HFS the right answer is E.

Could you please let me know which is the right answer for this question and why?
Hello Gurus,

Has anybody used following books for SCWCD preparation and what is the experience?

1) Core Servlet and Java Server Pages, Vol 1. 2nd Edition by Mart Hall and Larry Brown.

2) Core J2EE Patterns, Best Practices and Design Strategies, 2nd Edition by Deepak Alur, Dan Malks and John Crupi.

Also please let me know if you have refered any other books/documentation and/or tutorials.

Thanks for your help.
Hello Dan,

Thanks for your wishes, your mock exams helped me a lot. Solving your and Marcus Green's mock exams is the best study for this exam.

Hello Gurus,

Finnaly after posting my previous question 'Is SCBCD worth?' and reading suggestions by Edwin Keeton and Gaurav Bhatnagar I have decided to persue SCBCD certification.

I have some experience in EJB development and I am currently using Mastering Enterprise JavaBeans by Ed Roman for my studies.

Could you please give me your suggestions about how should I prepare for this exams in terms of different reference books etc?

Thanks for your help.
Hello Gurus,

Yes I will definitely post my decision in this forum. Thanks for your help.

Thanks for your reply. It will help in deciding which exam to give.
Hello Gurus,

This is my first post in this forum so if I have posted this message in a wrong forum I am sorry.

Any ways my question is as follows.
I'm familiar with EJB technology but we do not use this technology in our office. I was just wondering how well accepted this technology is? If it is not then is it worth spending time in preparing for this exam or one should prepare for SCWCD instead of SCBCD?

If you could express your opinion I will be obliged.
Hello Gabriele,
In a class initializer if you want to use forward reference (instance variable usabe before its declaration) then you need to use 'this' qualifier (e.g. this.index)
I hope this will help.
