Hi,

This is for folks who've already cleared the exam

Can someone please confirm if the Chapter on Deployment Descriptors(in EJB specs) is covered under the exam syllabus or only some tags from the descriptor(as covered in HFEJB) are enough

It seems to be in trememndous detail in the spec..

Any other pointers to what is NOT to be reffered in EJB spec will be helpful

Thanks,
Rahul

While I was revising for the exam, I found the XML examples in Head First weren't clear enough in where they fitted into the ejb-jar.xml file. For that reason, I would recommend going through the DTD section in the official spec as, although it's not very readable, it does show exactly how the DD is put together, and what tags are allowed in what other ones. What I did, which certainly helped, was to make my own dummy DD file, with just the tags (no content), to learn the structure of the file. Obviously I can't be specific about what was in the exam, but you do need to know the DD syntax.
