I've been scouting around the internet finalising my prep for the exam doing lots of questions. It seems to me there are alot of design patterns on the exam, possibly, that are not even mentioned,let alone discussed in the Head First book. Design patterns such as Data Access Component, Value Object, Domain Activator, Composite Delegate, Transfer Facade. Does anybody have a good online resource I can access for info on these? Regards, Tim Puchala
In that case, I would need some suggestions. I'm actually planning to buy HFDS today and what would that teach me?? Will it be worth the buy?? I know that this question is irrelevant to this forum, but I appreciate anyone's help.

Well, I came across these extra design patterns from 2 sources. One of them, Composite Delegate is actually the answer to one of the questions in Head First S&JSP (Q.3, page 752). The others have come from this website's mock exams as answers to questions! http://www.j2eecertificate.com/ regards tim

I'm afraid the authors were being bad bad people when they created that question. They do have a long track record of being good, but for a moment it seemed that being so good was dull and they wavered.
You guys gotta give me a break - that was a really long book and I just needed to break up the mood a little bit. What I will say in my defense is that if you study the ACTUAL patterns and come to understand how their names tie in to what they do, you might get some clues that these are fictitious
