Hi All
I passed SCWCD with 95%(66/69) today

FYI here are the resources i used and the way i use them

1.HFJS book-I Got the HFJS book (for 1.4 exam) and read it three times .(first read each chapter twice and did the questions and then after finishing the book i read it again through all chapters).this is really a nice book and it helped me a lot
2.Manning Book-I Got this book (1.4 version) and read it as above but after the HFJS book.It Helped me to clarify some points and it is a good book as well
3.JWebPlus-I used this as the exam simulater .it helped me a lot and most of questions are similar to exam questions.
4.though i had many resorces through the net i was unable to use them due to the lack of time.

Talking about the exam here are some things i noted :roll:
1.Questions on Security ,Deployment and Design Patterns are the easiest and simplest questions on the exam.
2.I got around 5 Drag and Drop Questions but they were short (ie there were only 4 or 5 fragments to fill)
3.One Question contained a Java Script Part.though i did not hava any knowledge on java script i managed to keep it correct(i think so).(actually the jsp knowledge was enough for the question)

well i think thats enough for now.it took me 1 1/2 months to complete the studying for the exam(not full time and i Did Not Had any knowledge on web programming before this.but i think it is quite a long time, any way satisfied with the marks)

So If You have any questions about the exam please dont hesitate to ask me.
GOOD LUCK for every one who wants to be a SCWCD

Hi Shashindra,

congrats for the feat!!!
I too am preparing for SCWCD 1.5 and would like to know that if there are any questions based on the features of JAVA 1.5 like generics/autoboxing/..
and if yes like any examples i can read from ..any resource on net??

and yeah i had a question regarding <jsp:useBean> tag .. there is an example in Head First which mentions pg 356 (chap 8-be a container)
in 3rd option that
request.setAttribute("person",p) will enable
<jsp:useBean id="person" type="foo.Employee"/>
<jsp:getProperty name="person" property="name"/>

this to give correctly the name set even though as we know that if
scope
is not mentioned it defaults to page. here it should default to page and since the attribute
person
is set in request scope it should not be able to find the bean.

please help me understand if there is flaw in my understanding!!??

thanks
Bhupen

Hi Shashindra,
Many many congrats on your success. Actually i wanna a ask you one thing, As i have seen from your study material that you prepared for SCWCD1.4, but still you gave the SCWCD 1.5 exam and came out of flying colors. I wanna know is there much difference between them? As I also have prepared for 1.4 version, but when I came to know that 1.5 has been released, i dropped my idea to clear the exam. Should I go for the exam?
What extra things do I have to study for 1.5? from where to study those things? and how much time it will require? Could you please help me in this?

well i had the doubt about 1.5 and 1.4 versions
but as far as i see its same and the posts by the fellow ranchers also confirmed that 1.5 can be done with the knowledge of 1.4
The only used JWebPlus 1.5 and all the other resources were designed to 1.4
SO dont be afraid to do the exam with proper 1.4 knowledge
