There is huge demand for Spring and Hibernate and at the same time there are more people who know those technologies. Not everyone get a chance to work on BEA products. You are definitely not wasting your time on BEA tools.
My company pays a special incentive for ppl working on WLI.
SCWCD covers more technologies/topics like JSP,Servlet,EL, design patterns,etc. But SCBCD just covers EJB2.0. Hence if you go thru the Head First EJB, EJB 2.0 spec it will be a easy exam to crack. I did it in 2months.
I gave the exam recently and ther were no EJB specific questions. If you have a good understanding of how EJBs work and the advantages of EJBs over other technologies then you can go ahead with the exam.
Hi Ranchers, I cleared SCDJWS with 79 % today. It was a tough exam compared to the other two exams which I have given till date probably due to the large number of technologies the examcovers. I used the J2EE Web Services and Sun Blue prints as reference along with Mikalai's notes and Quiz.
The application I am working on gets the data from the business tier as a list of value objects. Before forwarding the data to the view I need to format the data so that I can display it in the JSP without having to use scriplets. View helper is one of the strategy. But we are not using any custom data and want to do all the formatting of data in the servlet before passing on to JSP. Can anyone let me know what are the strategies for doing the formatting.
