i read your other post as well and i must agree that there is a confusion. i checked the oracle page regarding ocwcd 5 exam and it says it is based on jee 5. but then the coderanch scwcd links says it is based on j2ee 1.4 with so much confidence that no matter what you hear, what you see believe us. my intuition is that that has to be corrected. if the exam is based on jee 5, which is the umbrella specification , for servlet and jsp spec, under jee 5 we have :
The ScwcdLinks says:
(Yes, SCWCD 5 uses the J2EE 1.4 specs and API. It doesn't matter what else you may have seen/read/heard. Just trust us.)
I think I was the one who wrote it there. We had inside information. The exam did not change between versions 1.4 and 5, which isn't surprising because not much actually changed in the specs between those versions - so... you could study either version of the specs and you should be fine.
