Hi,

I have cleared IBM WebSphere Portal V5.1 Application Development Exam 399 with 70%. Thanks for all ranchers for posting their valuable inputs, comments and links. I lost most of my questions on Install, Setup and Configuring development Env.

The complexity in real exam is much much higher when compared to mock exams.

I would like to take Test 397: IBM WebSphere Portal V5.1, Deployment and Administration or Test 825: IBM WebSphere Portal 6 Deployment and Administration. I am bit confused to choose between Test 397 and Test 825. I don't have any practical knowledge on IBM WebSphere Portal 6. I don't have the environment to work as well. Is it possible to take Test 825 with only theoritical knowledge.

It will be of great help if someone can share their inputs in terms of how much time is required to prepare, resource links, mock exams etc on admin exam so that it will be easy.

Thanks in advance

Hi All,

I am using WAS 5.0.2 and Websphere Portal Server 5.0.2.2. In portal server if I type the URL http://localhost:9081/admin the admin console of WAS is exposed to all the users. I want to block the admin console by specifying a user id and password.

I have enabled the Global Security option in WAS. It works fine and I am able to login to WAS using user id and password. But the problem is when I type the URL https://localhost:9444/wps/myportal it is taking me to Login Screen but once I give user id and password it is giving me the blank screen. If I disable the gloabal security option it is working fine.

Pls help me!!!. I have refered so many posts but I am not able to find a solution.

Thanks

Hi All,

We are developing an application using Websphere portal server5.0.2.2. We are using JSR168 sepecification. We are trying to retreive the userID of the logged in user using PUMA API. I have written the code mentioned below to retreive UserID. We are getting null. Pls give me the solution if somebody has solved this problem. We are storing the user information in IBM Cloudscape database which comes by default along with portal server and
we are not using LDAP to store the user information.


import com.ibm.portal.puma.User;
import com.ibm.portal.puma.Principal;
import com.ibm.wps.puma.UserManager;
import com.ibm.portal.puma.Group;
import com.ibm.wps.puma.GroupManager;


public void doView(RenderRequest request, RenderResponse response)
{
response.setContentType(request.getResponseContentType());

PortletSession session = request.getPortletSession();

com.ibm.portal.puma.User usr = (com.ibm.portal.puma.User) request.getUserPrincipal();

String uid = usr.getUserID();
System.out.println("UserID"+uid);

JSP_FOLDER = "/abbadmin/jsp/html/common";
VIEW_JSP = "Login";

}
Thanks

Hi All,
I cleared SCJP 1.4 yesterday with 90%. There is lot of questions on threads. I think I lost few questions in Garbage Collection and Threads due to carelessness.
My next exam will be SCWCD. Can any one of you suggest me the sites where I can find free mock exams for SCWCD exam.
1>First of all I would like to specially thank Dan Chisolm and Maha Anna for their wonderful collection of questions. The concepts will get very clear once we start taking all the exams from the sites.
2>Thanks to Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates for the wonderful book.
3>Thanks to all Java Ranch users.
Tips and suggestions
1> I felt Kathy Sierra is very good book for certification point of view.
2>Before taking the real exam try to give as many Mock exams as you can. This will boost our confidence and we will know in which areas we have to improve.
3>Go thru all the discussions of Maha Anna. She had very good collections based on topic wise. I felt these discussions are very useful.
4>Finally try to solve as many questions as you can from Dan Chisolm site. The real exam won't be as difficult as the questions in Dan site but the concepts will get very clear once we solve all the questions.
Once again my special thanks to all the JAVA RANCH users...

Cheers
