devika,

Servlet filters are definitely part of 1.4 objectives. Look at section 3 :

"Describe the Web container request processing model; write and configure a filter; create a request or response wrapper; and given a design problem, describe how to apply a filter or a wrapper."

and there were questions on it for me.

Rashmi,

I think the filters are covered well in the "Study Kit" book. There are not many changes in filters in servlet 2.3 and 2.4 (Except one key difference about how filters can intercept requests forwarded or included by RequestDispatcher http://javapronews.com/2003/0408.html ).

I mostly relied on the 2.4 spec and a few articles on onjava.com and javaworld.com for filters.

I think there were only 2-3 questions on filters. But they were really easy, so don't skip it

Rashmi,

I purchased JWebPlus v4 from enthuware. and just took 4 out of the 7 exams. (I was in a real hurry too Scored little above 80 on those exams and just 84 on the real one.

I prepared for 1.5 weeks after completing SCJP (well... but I work with Servlets/JSP almost every day). 1.3 Study kit book + specs quick read + new JSP and JSTL sections from Bergsten's book + JWebPlus exams. Thats all

good luck.
