1) Typically, what MUST be done to the PortletService reference prior to using?

A. Use the reference to create the service.
B. Use the reference to locate the service factory.
C. Cast the reference to a different interface type.
D. Register with the service.

I saw that the answer which was posted in this forum is "A".
But i was thinking of "D" (Reason : I think the Q is asked from the view of various steps in accessing).

2) A customer has an old web application that uses a proprietary user database. The customer wants to integrate the web application into a portlet so that users have a single signon experience. It would be possible to leverage the CredentialVaultService and provide the desired true single signon experience ONLY if:

A. the backend Web Application supports BASIC Authentication.
B. an existing Credential Object type such as HttpBasicAuth can be used or specially coded.
C. the backend Web Application supports Trust Association Interceptor (TAI).
D. the LDAP database were extended with fields that contain a copy of the username and password of the Web Application.

Ans) B (How?)

3)Which methods are added to the portlet lifecycle when a PortletPageListener interface and a PortletSessionListener interface are added?

A. initListener(), destroyListener(), beginPage(), endPage()
B.login(), logout(), beginPage(), endPage(), service()
C. login(), logout(), beginPage(), endPage(), initListener(), destroyListener(), service()
D. beginPage(), endPage(), service()
E. login(), logout(), beginPage(), endPage()

Ans B (Is this right ?)

4)Which of the following are NOT found within a portlet deployment descriptor? (Select 2)

A. Web application characteristics of the portlet application
B. Portlet application characteristics which the portal server should support
C. App name for the portlet
D. Portlet URL mappings
E. Portlet version information

Ans : A and D (Is this right?)
Correct me if i am wrong.

Passed 348 today with 72%
I would like to thanks all the people who helped in this forum.This forum has been a great help.I would like to thank Dav Jones for sending me the manual.

(although i was not able to get the answers for the questions which i posted earlier previously in this topic)
I do not have any portal experience.
As far as study is concerned I read the manual sent by dav Jones and the portal development redbook

Apart from the manual and the redbook I also suggest to know about transcoding,portal catalog(s) on IBM site,different types of portal logs, portal API , especially portal request , portal response ,portal settings,portal application seetings. In what methods they are sending as parameters. How the API's are used in portal life cycle e.t.c..
Learn about navigation ,database interaction for portalsportal toolkit v5. e.t.c..
I may edit this message if i remember anything.
Of course ICE is also very helpful.Dont for get to understand each Q in that.
As far as preparation is concerned i did 4 hours each for 2 weeks .with extra efforts on 2 weekends.

Last but not the least i would like to thank IBM for giving the free voucher
