Congrets Gabriel....

Thats really a great score. Please share your preparation process with us. It will a great help. I am planning to appear for exam on 16th December.
Is HFSJ and SCWCD study kit books are enough, or do we need to read spefications for the exam??

Thanks in advance

Hi,

I have used the "HF Servlets and JSP" (read twice) and study the specs as well (mainly jstl core and custom tags). On the last day I went through the JSP and servlet API also to memorize the method signatures, names and return values.
In my opinion the HF Servlets and JSP is enough for the exam. In addition to the info in the book You have to know something about dynamic attributes for the custom tags (it is not covered in the book). The HFSJ is a great book, but be aware, as there are some mistakes. The ones I can remember:

1.
the exception JSP object is Throwable and not JspException
2.
If the argument of the sendRedirect, encodeURL, encodeRedirectURL methods begins with '/', than it is a relativ to the container's root (not to the web application's root)
3.
the <c:remove var="attr"/> removes all attributes 'attr' from all scopes.
4.
${aBean.notAProperty} throws an exception, if aBean is not null and there is not any 'notAProperty' property on the bean.
5.
the

is not valid. The security-role tag can contain only one role-name tag. So the

is the right one.

In addition to the reading I have created a lot of small web applications on my laptop to try everything what I have read. That is all

Would you plz suggest, which books to start with? I know all basics of Servlets( had read Inside servlets and Jason Hunter) and JSP specs.

But now could u suggest a book for refreshing the core, so that later I could jump to some certificzaation book.

any advice will be appriciated

Please look at the notes
------------------------------------------
4.${aBean.notAProperty} throws an exception, if aBean is not null and there is not any 'notAProperty' property on the bean.
------------------------------------------

Hi,

Wanted to know if this is correct. If Bean is not null and no property in the bean will throw a exception.

If Bean itself is null the result will be null

Somebody please explain this behaviour.

You are right. Look at JSP 2.0 spec (page 105):
To evaluate expr-a[expr-b]:
- Evaluate expr-a into value-a
- If value-a is null, return null. (This explains the null returned)
...
...
- Otherwise (a JavaBeans object),...
---- If value-b is a readable property of value-a,...
---- Otherwise: error. (This explains the exception thrown)
