Dear all,
I would like to take the IBM test 286. Can anyone suggest me any study materials, e.g. books and mock exam site or paper?

Thank you very much

I am prepareing for this test too.
I guess, since this is a sort of practice-oriented test, we just need play around the WSAD besides the education resources mentioned by IBM self-study approach?
Let's study together!

Thanks for your suggestion, Tong.
I tried to download Websphere site Developer V5, since there is no such version downloaded from IBM site.
Do you have this experience? If so, what is your alternatives?

Is the application developer similar to site developer?
Any difference between them?

To Tong Cheng,
I am studying test 286 right now, however, I found that the questions in the IBM is quite complicated, and don't know the correct answer.
I am trying to find the answer in the book now.
I would like to ask how do you study now?

I will
1) study the reading material recommended by IBM, see here: http://www-1.ibm.com/certify/tests/edu286.shtml#ssa
2) get the prod info from here:
http://www-3.ibm.com/software/awdtools/studioappdev/library/
3) installed the WSAD V5, play around with it, also see the help document with WSAD v5
4) I am starting doing the serious development using WSAD v5.0
I will post my questions here while I get something unclear. Guys, let's study together!

Dear Tong Cheng,
I installed IBM Websphere Application Server - Express 5.0.
It includes Sitde Developer. Do you think it has no difference with application developer?
I found that the question ICE is very very complicated. Do you think answering that question means I can get passing grade?

I hadn't taken Real 286 test yet, but I have done quite some other IBM tests (real and ICE). My impression is: real one is more difficult than that in ICE.

I have a book on my bookshelf titled Professional IBM Websphere 5.0 Application Server from Wrox Books. It might be a good resource....

I'm using the WSAD V5 to develop a new project.
That means I am playing around with WSAD V5. I always think that, the best way to learn a new technology or a new tool is to use it.
Happy learning.....

Would you tell me where I get the new project to do?

Thank you very much

Benson,
Maybe I misunderstand your questions....
What I meant is that, my company is using WSAD v5 to develop the application projects....

Dear Tong Cheng,
I got a question in the WSAD.
the following is the jsp fragment :
<jsp:useBean id="userBean" class="UserBean" scope="page">
<jsp:setProperty name="userBean" property="keyword"/>
</jsp:useBean>
But WSAD always generate the following errors:
"JavaCompile: UserBean cannot be resolved or is not a type."
Do you know what the problem is?

To Tong Cheng,
According to the exam 286's test objectives, there is a point 'Apply server-side pattern'.
Would you tell me how to do that? There is no such file in the on-line help.

Thank you very much

Here is for Profiling Java Application from the WSAD help document:
Profiling an application
You must be in the Profiling perspective (Perspective > Open > Other > Profiling) in order to profile your Java, Web, or EJB applications. If you are working in other perspectives such as the Java, Server, or the Debug perspectives, you automatically enter the Profiling perspective when you use the Profile button , which is available on the main toolbar.
Profiling an application is possible either on your local host, or on a remote host, or even in stand-alone mode (that is, from the command line). The Profiling tools are used primarily to profile applications in the WebSphere test environment, which is the complete run-time environment of WebSphere Application Server. They are also used to profile applications both locally and remotely using the WebSphere Application Server.
When you profile an application, you can specify the methods, classes, or packages you are interested in by setting filters for the agent.
Warning: Profiling too much data can significantly slow down your application.
Default filters are set in Window > Preferences > Profiling and Logging > Profiling, and they exclude some IBM, Java, and Sun packages. You can change these filters.
