9780955160318: Sun Certified Web Component Developer Study Companion: SCWCD Java EE 5 (exams 310-083 and 310-084)

This book is a study guide for any candidate preparing for the new Java EE 5 version of the Sun Certified Web Component Developer exam (310-083 and upgrade 310-084). It contains the theory behind why the Web container operates as it does, and important notes, hints and tips on the types of trick questions to look for in the exam. By combining logical and easy-to-follow discussions with clear visual aids and diagrams, you will learn how the container works, and, by the end of the book, you'll be wondering why servlets, JSPs and tag libraries seemed so complicated before. By combining the theory taught in this book with practical experience, you will not only succeed in passing the exam, but will do so confident that you are able to solve problems and draw-up solutions on the job.

Reference Material
Have you ever found that you couldn't quite remember the names of the XML elements or attributes in the Deployment Descriptor or Tag Library Descriptor, or perhaps you've had problems recalling custom tag life cycles? Not a problem! Helpful visual diagrams show at a glance the important schemas, without having to resort to knowing the XML Schema or DTD languages, as used in the specifications.

Who is this book suitable for?
This guide is not intended as a beginner's book. It assumes prior, although basic, knowledge of J2EE, the Web container and the Extensible Mark-up Language (XML) core syntax. However, thorough explanations are presented to give an excellent grounding in the subject area. In addition, particular attention is devoted to the subjects of the Expression Language and custom tag libraries, both of which are new or have been significantly updated in the 1.4 version of the J2EE platform. No knowledge of either of these more difficult topics is assumed.

Additional Chapters
The two additional chapters present a summary of all the new features available in Java EE 5.0, including the platform's change of name! These are suitable for anyone already working confidently with J2EE 1.4.

About the Author:

Charles Lyons is an independent computer consultant based near London, UK, with over five years of programming experience in a wide variety of fields and applications ranging from microprocessors and machine code to the Web, three-dimensional graphics and modelling, and client- and server-side programming using Java. Self-taught, his career began as a Web page designer, hand-coding pages in raw (X)HTML, XML and CSS. His interest quickly spread to the dynamic serving of data, using server-side programming languages like PHP, and eventually onto the Java language. Combining Java Enterprise technology with Web page design just seemed like the thing to do, and so here we are - this book is a culmination of his years of experience with the Web and Java. This book is based on his own experiences, and mostly from the process of learning from his mistakes and misconceptions!

Review:

SCWCD cannot be aimed for a 100% if you have not referred to the API documentation or the JSP and Servlet Specifications. But would you really like to go through such humongous documentation within a short span of time? I hear many no's cried out loud. But what if I say you would get a compact series of chapters and exam wise listed topics with the API information just perfect for the exam and Specification filtered out with only the exam relevant aspects, then this the book to go for. I wouldn't have been able to score a 90+ score seriously speaking without this book. Charles Lyons has prepared the book with a lot of effort of perfectly scanning up to the API level details and also packaging it with the specification information so compactly that you don't get bored reading it. He has maintained the flow so accurately that your questions will immediately be answered just as they get raised in your mind. Don't try to read through the chapters in between because the flow of the chapters will be clear only when you start it from the beginning. I assure that reading this book won't make you touch the specifications nor the API documentations at all. Even I didn't!

The best part of the book is it acts not only as a SCWCD study companion but also as a Reference book for future use since it has additional chapters for the updates that have happened in the recent past in JSP and Servlets. The one thing I would reprimand in using this book is don't try to solve tests provided at the end of each chapter since they are literally tough! You need to have your brain super charged to solve the tests since they cover an amazing depth of knowledge. But on the lines of SCWCD you won't get such difficult questions so it is better if you stick to the tests provided in the earlier 2 books. --SCWCD - The 3 Steps to Success by Nitin Pai

1. Very easy on reading - zero noise, wonderful narration and simply explained.
2. Concepts explained in detailed - a handy reference, even after passing the exam.
3. Chapter on EL,Std. Action, Tag File, Tag deployment and JSP Document - are really good.

The first few chapters 1~6 related to servlet technology (some have more of API than explanations..), security and design patterns - these chapters can be easily covered from any other source as well (Since some details are asmiss as well - so might go through Specs/HFSJ/or HD instead).

Overall I liked the book very much and I am keeping it for future reference on my shelf. For anyone new to JSP/Servlets and who find HFSJ a bit noisy - would find this book as a light breeze... --Shivani Chandna, reader
