Hola amigos ranchers !!

Today I took IBM 256 exam, I scored 74%, 38 good questions, it was a little difficult, especially because I studied for only 2 weeks, almost 2 hrs per day, some days I didnt study at all because I had to take care of my daughter but anyway, for those who are parents they may understand me

THANKS to Mikalai's notes, his mocker exam is very helpful. GRACIAS AMIGO !!

I used redbook pdf from IBM as well.

Here are the topics you should be aware:

1. One question about "Compare with and Replace with"
2. MVC Pattern design
3. Search funtion, what "dW" means
4. Call hierarchy view and refactoring java code
5. How to invoke workspaces from command line, the parameter used
6. Action Mapping available in the Struts Editor
7. Mapping EJB
8. How a schema can be modified remotely
9. Web services, what artifacts are created, what are optional values
10. Symptom database (really easy question)
11. JUnit assert exceptions
12. Using enhanced EAR
13. Setting breakpoint in a JSP, only the valid places to set them up
14. Expresion view
15. Profiling, what is needed to do it
16. What we can do in WSDL Editor

So far are the topics I remember at this moment.
