Hi, ranchers,
First of all, I give my great appreciate for your guys and this forum. Though I didn't give much dissution here, yet I got lots of helpful information.

I spent around two weeks in clearing this exam. I got errors on one question in isSecure(), and two questions in thread-safe questions.
the materials I used include:
More Servlet and JSP;
SCWCD Study Kit;(with JWebPlus+)
Servlet and JSP APIs;
Servlet and JSP specifications;
I would recommend Study Kit with JWebPlus, plus APIs and specifications for this exam. More Servlet and JSP book is good, but it is not for the exam study.
and I would recommend to remember all of the required web.xml elements and TLD elements so that some very sample questions will not get confuse.
Get a clear APIs study is good for this exam. and specification will help you understand some more deep content.

Well done Leon
I hope that I, too, will one day be in that happy position of being able to tell other Java SCWCD aspirants what I did to pass my exam
I've just started my SCWCD preparations, with pretty much zip knowledge of JSP or Servlets. But that was how I started for the SCJP as well and, thanks to this forum amongst other things, it went pretty well.
Apache Tomcat appears to have popped up several times wrt the SCWCD exams. Did you play around much with this? Which version? Ta.
Now go and enjoy a cold one...

Congrats! You got very high score.
I wanted to buy SCWCD Study Kit;(with JWebPlus+). I phoned bookstore, they said that the book is not published yet(It will be published soon). Where can I buy published version(not by shipping) in Candana. Does anyone know?

hi, mark,
I didn't play too much with Apache and Tomcat. and I also didn't see them in my exam questions.
However, I has used Apache and Tomcat for a long time and I had some projects requiring Apache and Tomcat as servers. Now I am using Apache 1.3.14 and Apache 2.0 with Tomcat 4 (I always use the latest release versions if no specific requirement on them.)
If just for the exam, I think that just Tomcat 4 is fine, and there is no need for Apache.
