Hi All,
According to the objectives of the SCWCD The section 11 is "Designing and developing JSp pages using custome tags" and the section 12 is "Designing and developing Custome tag library".
I am using "more servlets and java server pages" book..by marty hall.
This book has 2 full chapters dedicated to tag Library..
chapter 11: new tag library features in JSP1.2
chapter 12: The JSP standared tag library
Do I need to study these 2 chapters?? for the exam?
I am wondering whether the Sun Objective Section 11 is same as JSP standard tag library??

And what is the best source to study the section 11 i.e. designing and developing custom tag library topic?
Thanks in advance.

as I remember 11 is talking about, say, given an tag that could not have any attribute, or has to have an empty body, or, have an required attribute, and attribute value could come from request-time. Then what is the correct syntax of using this tag.
11 also talks about taglib's url mapping.
11 is much easier than 12. 12 is about javax.servlet.jsp.tagext package, and tld files.
I am not sure what will be the best study resouce for 11 and 12. the best i know is SCWCD study kit. in case you don't have that book, you better read everything in your jsp book, except "defining a varialbe using custom tag", this part is not covered by the exam. ie, forget about tei-class and it's related stuff, and no verification for taglib.

no.
for jsp tags, for the sake of the exam, you only need to grasp:
jsp:useBean
jsp:setProperty
jsp:getProperty
jsp:include
jsp:forward
jsp aram
not even jsp arams and jsp lugin
