What are the new topics added in SCWCD 1.4 except EL and JSTL.

Also, is DTD required to be studied. People who have already cleared the exam 1.4, pls comment and give your valuable suggestions.

This might help in preparing for the following
SCWD 1.4 new topics:

Download the J2EE 1.4 Documentation from this website

http://java.sun.com/j2ee/1.4/download.html

There is an option to download just the J2EE documentation.

1) Expression Language - EL
Check the javax.servlet.jsp.el package in the J2EE documentation.

2) JSTL 1.1
Check the javax.servlet.jsp.tagext package in the J2EE docs.

3) J2EE Design patterns - These urls on sun would be helpful.
http://java.sun.com/blueprints/patterns/catalog.html
http://java.sun.com/blueprints/corej2eepatterns/

Also - the study guide

There's a brand new J2EE 1.4 tutorial available on SUN website.

http://java.sun.com/j2ee/1.4/docs/tutorial/doc/

Hope this helps.

Here's a link to downloadable version of the Falkner and Jones book from TheServerSide:

Servlets and JSPs Book

It supports the latest servlet (2.4) and jsp (2.0) specs.

Hope you find it useful.

Also new in 1.4 objectives are SimpleTag and Tag files. Those are also added in JSP 2.0 and hence in SCWCD 1.4. I used Bergsten's book for those sections.

-Durgesh
SCJP 1.4, SCWCD 1.4, SCDJWS(beta)

The Falkner and Jones book which Paul has specified above also contains a good explaination about SimpleTag and Tag files. This book is really great for getting in touch with the new topics of the 1.4 exam.


Cheers
Gaurav

No doubt that the above mentioned book is a GOOD resource but it does not allow the printing of the book

Try using it to make your own notes then? Thats what I'm doing. The specifications helped a lot too.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
