SCWCD Exam Study Kit: Java Web Component Developer Certification (Paperback)

Hanumant Deshmukh, Jignesh Malavia




With the tremendous penetration of J2EE in the enterprise, passing the Sun Certified Web Component Developer exam has become an important qualification for Java developers. To pass the SCWCD exam (Exam Number: 310-080) you need to answer 60 questions in 90 minutes and get 61% of them right. You also need $150, and this book.

SCWCD Exam Study Kit helps you learn all the concepts, large and small, that you must know to pass the exam. In this must-have book, you can be sure that no exam topics are missed.

The exam is for Sun Certified Java Programmers who have a certain amount of experience with Servlets and JSPs, but for those who do not, the book starts with three introductory chapters on these topics. Although SCWCD Exam Study Kit has one purpose, to help you get certified, you will find yourself returning to it as a reference after passing the exam.

The CD includes three bonus practice exams from the popular test simulator, JWebPlus, which helps you reinforce key concepts. All questions are followed with detailed explanations. It also includes Tomcat, the Servlet/JSP specifications, related RFCs and a convenient, searchable electronic version of the book.

The ebook version includes the same contents as the CD: a searchable version of the book and the full JWebPlus application/test simulator, as well as instructions on downloading Tomcat.
