So, I am attempting to memorize the main elements of web.xml. Here is a method I have derived. If anyone has a better method let me know. Again, this list contains what I believe are the major elements of the <web-app> element. I know there are repeat letters but once I write them down I can figure the rest of them by their position (i.e. <security-role> is always last).

C = <context-param>
L = <listener>
S = <servlet>
S = <servlet-mapping>
S = <session-config>
W = <welcome-file-list>
E = <error-page>
T = <taglib>
S = <security-constraint>
L = <login-config>
S = <security-role>

What about 'F' for filters?

Filters are not covered in the objectives for the SCWCD exam. Also, I took a bunch of mocks before the actual exam and didn't run into any questions asking me about filters with respect to the deployment descriptor.

Also, here's another phrase that could be used. I am a big progressive house fan
"Can Lawler Show Sasha Some Ways Every Tribal Song Layers Slowly?"
Oh yeah, I forgot to mention in my first post that the phrase also implies the ordering of the elements.

Yeah, I've always liked sentences where each word stood for something. I guess it's personal preference but the bottom line is finding a way to reiterate the information for the exam and hopefully finding a method that will stay with you for some time. For me, it's always the oddest things that I remember the most...
