Hi..

In HFSJ book Apache WebServer and Tomcat Web Container is used to explain the concepts. I am using WebSphere Studio Application Developer. Then What Could be the WebContainer for this.. or else WSAD combines both the server and the container..

Thanks in Advance..

Doesn't WSAD come bundled with Websphere Application Server? This would be your servlet container and much much more...

WSAD contains a built-in testing environment (UTE), which can be act as both Web server and application server. Basically, the web server is Apache and application server is WAS.

Thus, you can simply launch your application while the testing server in your WSAD started. You dont have to worry about how Apache and WAS linked together (unlike Apache and Tomcat, which you need to add a linked object between them). Or you can work in simple way that solely uses Tomcat, as it is also a light web server if you dont need advanced functions from a web server.

I'm thinking to use IntellJ IDEA (that what we are using at work)

should the use of IDE be discouraged for this exam? or in another words, what possibilities of questions will be overlooked??

thanks

I'd recommend avoidance of IDE's in studying for the exam.

The reason is that IDE's often autocomplete things for you - That doesn't help too much with learning. They also do all the library imports and function skeletons for you, which is not good, as many questions on the exam are related to the syntax.

Highlighting of errors is a good and bad thing which IDE's provide. It's good in that it will alert you to errors, but bad in that the simplicity they provide for fixing the errors limits how much you'll remember them.

I'm personally using just a text editor. It takes longer to study, but I find you remember things better.

After the exam, go nuts with the IDE of your choice
