I think it's good for scwcd 1.5, not sure about the new exam.



Thanks for the feedback. I was really tempted to buy the book but on Amazon I read this review of the book "But after receiving the book. It's the same as the old book with a sticker with the updated exams on the front page." So question is ... really a EE5 book or again an old book and better if I use the one I have already?

Thanks!


Hello

I have a SCWCD 1.4 certification. I registered few days ago for the new beta test CX-311-085 (exam on Sep 30).

I still have (and can still review) old Manning SCWCD Exam Study Kit book (2nd edition) but of course I need to focus on the differences between 1.4 and EE6 certifications. I see few comments here, a couple of extra questions:

- assuming no book cover yet the beta one, is it worth to buy a SCWCD 1.5 book and if so which one? Reading feedbacks on Amazon had the feeling that many were simply again 1.4 with a new title/sticker.

- what should I mainly focus for EE6?

- am I losing my time and 33£? I still anyway feel good to revise

Best

Thanks Christophe!

(I tried to change my signature but I always have 'Fields with the "*" are required' when I try to save, even if all the fields in the first block are filled)

yes, I did (and that post is 081 vs 083, not about 084).

And that's what confuse me. Basically that post says that differences between 081 and 083 are negligible, I quote:

" the changes in the relevant specs were very minor (as Mr. Lyons has mentioned). In fact, at the time I told Sun that it didn't make sense to create a new exam"

Here now we have as well 084 that is an exam for who took in the past 081. So, what is the goal of that exam? Is it worth taking?






Thanks Hasnain for the reply but it does not address my question: all the threads were about the (very minor) differences between 081 (SCWCD 1.4) and 083 (SCWCD EE5). So far so good.

What is then the goal / focus of the NEW 084 exam to upgrade the certification? Just a bit of marketing?

The list of topic looks to me a cut and paste but the exam format is different (see below) Any clue?

084 (EE5 upgrade)
# Exam type: Multiple Choice and Drag and Drop
# Number of questions: 50
# Pass score: 72% (36 of 50 questions)
# Time limit: 150 minutes

083 (EE5)
# Exam type: Multiple Choice and Drag and Drop
# Number of questions: 69
# Pass score: 70% (49 of 69 questions)
# Time limit: 180 minutes



Hello.

I would like to upgrade my SCWCD certification to EE5.

Is there any book or suggestion that I should consider specifically for the upgrade exam CX-310-084 or any information for the standard CX-310-083 exam will do?

Thanks

Hello.

I need to perform a LEFT OUTER JOIN (actually two of them) to retrieve all the information I need to return about my "contacts".

As the rs of the query might include multiple records for the same contact (and I might have a rs set of up to 3000 items) what is the best way to process it in my DAO class to return my contact objects?

I do not like to go through a list for every record and check if one with that id is already there. Is HashSet a sensible option? Any suggestion?

Thanks

Why not sorting them when you query from the DB?

Does anybody know why the 5.0 Upgrade Exam (CX-310-056) cost now $100 if taken in the US but around $300 in Europe?

We always had higher prices but now the difference is a bit too much. Waiting for an holiday on the other side of the Atlantic to take the exam...

Do you really need it in the Java Code? Cannot simply differentiate it in the ant script (where you can easily do that) when you build the code?
You can use a jsp:forward in the page but why do you need it? Don't use welcome-file-list at all- Just map the servlet directly. Probably I'm missing something here...

Hello.

I was able to get what I wanted adding a filter in the app1. All the requests for /newurl are now redirected to /app2/newurl using:






I had to add:




in the app1.xml as well. It works but I'm just wandering if there is a better solution.

Hello.

I have a Tomcat 5.5 running on myserver.com:8080 behind an Apache on port 80.

I have two application under webapps with the following context path:

webapps/app1<Context path=""
webapps/app2<Context path="/app2"

So app1 takes care of every request but:

http://myserver.com/app2/(...)

I have now a new requirement that:

http://myserver.com/newurl

should be forwarded to:

http://myserver.com/app2/

or even better:

http://myserver.com/app2/newurl

I have no control of the Apache server and I cannot change its configuration. Moreover:

Sessions (cookies and URL rewriting as well) should not be affected.

Only /newurl should go under /app2, everthing else (for example /morenewurl) should be not affected and go under /app1

Any idea how I can achieve that?

cheers

Well, I tried, but I could not find anything useful (or may be I am not looking for the correct info):



Is there any way to have the info from the request.getLocale()? I didn't think so but may be I'm worng...
