I am studying for the web component exam for J2EE 6 and when I first looked at the exam topics on the Oracle website, design patterns was listed. This was in April 2013

There is also a chapter on design patterns in the 2 study guides that I have.

However, when I recently checked the exam topics on the Oracle website, design patterns is not listed. See Oracle EE 6 exam topics

Therefore my question is, do I need to know Design Patterns for the exam?

Welcome

Which book or study guide are you referring? Design patterns are topics in the Java EE 5 WCD exam. From the Java EE 6 exam, IMO the objectives talks about MVC this and that. So MVC itself is a design pattern. Apart from that, from the objectives no other patterns.

The 2 study guides I have are the OCEJWCD Study Companion and Head First Servlets and JSP. Both have a chapter on Design Patterns.

The Head First only covers Jave EE 5, however the other one covers the Java EE 6 exam.

Hi Bridget,

Welcome to ranch!

The trick here is to do a search on the Certification Results forum as you might find an answer from the people who have passed the EE6 exam. I did a quick search and I found this thread with a clear answer to your question.

Regards,
Frits
