Greenwich, CT, May 19, 2005 -- The most popular book to cover the Sun Certified Web Component Developer exam is now updated in a second edition. This book covers the newest version of the exam, holding closely to its predecessor which set the standard for clarity and precise technical understanding. A reviewer of the first edition at JavaRanch.com noted it was "chock full of excellent resources" and would "definitely use this book even after the exam."
SCWCD Exam Study Kit Second Edition is for Java programmers who want to prepare for this exam which focuses on the Servlet and JavaServer Pages technologies. While the exam is geared for those who have a certain amount of related experience, those who do not will quickly get up to speed with the book's three introductory chapters. The bulk of the book's chapters are then built around the objectives that Sun has published for the updated exam. With its in-depth explanations, the book thoroughly covers Sun's new features for simplifying web development including the Expression Language, the JSP Standard Tag Library, and SimpleTag development. Review questions and quizlets throughout ensure that the reader has understood the concepts. The publisher's website offers owners of the book additional features to help them succeed on the exam: source code for all the programming examples and an abbreviated version of the JWebPlus exam simulator containing a practice exam.
With the tremendous penetration of J2EE in the enterprise, passing the SCWCD exam has become an important qualification for Java and J2EE developers. The SCWCD Exam Study Kit Second Edition has one purpose, to help programmers get certified. Its in-depth coverage will do that and more, proving this book to be a reliable desk reference after the exam as well.
