Some very basic questions:
1) This exam is for J2EE v1.4.
2) Which App Server does every one recomments for exam?
might be Sun's J2EE SDK (link mentioned in earlier posts) or tomcat??
3) How much amount of "practical experience" or "practice" is actually required for the exam?
Now, there is no limit to this, but say two categories:
a) Total theoretical
b) With some experience on previous version say Worked on J2EE 1.0
Thank you in advance for your inputs.

If you are a beginner I would recommend use TOMCAT 5.0.
To practice the examp examples go straight to
and download
JavaServer Pages (JSP) and Servlets Code Camp
Advanced JSP and Servlets Code Camp
Work on these wonderful samples for one week.
NOTE : (I think these dosen't cover JSTL)
(If you are a beginner you might want to work more on samples).
Trick : (Work on all samples hidden in the form of codes but you have to make them working )
Devote second week studying the specs for Servlet2.4, JSP2 and JSTL1.1.
You can get them here
and you will be good to go for exam by third week of Jan.
Good Luck.
