I am preparing for scwcd exam.
The most worriing topics for me is the EL and custom tags.
There are lot of rules to remember in both the topics.
I am always getting low marks when I am trying to answer the question on those topics.
Is there any material that makes my leanring of those two topics easy?
Can some one help in mastering those two topics.
Please share the links or material which makes learning those two topics damn easy...
I have my exam on 28th May and I was also having lots of problems with EL and Custom tags. But after reading Head First Servlet and JSP chapters on EL and custom tags, I am pretty much confident with these topics. I would recommend HFSJ Second Edition for these chapters and Security, Design Patterns chapter.
Hello, I gave the exam last month and cleared with 89%.
If you have working experience, this exam is very easy.
About studying Tags and EL -
Make a chart of rules for each Tag, Classic Tag, Simple Tag, JSTL and EL and study daily and write it down daily. Believe me within 3-4 days - you will have them on tip of tongue. HFSJ and David Bridgewater books already have very good tables/ chart. You can add your points to it and write it down daily!
Read the SCWCD links from this site - Rancher's Notes - almost daily - I found Jothi Shankar Kumar SCWCD hints very handy and informative. Link is as follows - http://faq.javaranch.com/java/ScwcdHints
Other topics whichever you find difficult - Write it down daily.
I will give you one example - in my exam - on security there was a question to choose between CLIENT_CERT and CLIENT-CERT. If you have working experience - fine- otherwise writing these rules, helps in such type of confusion.
