1 : 4 is correct.

2 : 1 & 4 is correct.

3 : 1 is correct.

4 : 1 is correct.

5 : 2 is correct.

6 : 1 & 3 is correct.

7 : 4 is correct.

8 : 2 & 3 is correct.

9 : 1 & 2 is correct.

10 : 5 is correct.

11 : 3 is correct.

12 : 5 is correct.
Explanation: The Function class must have a method with signature: public static String transformString(String arg);
1 is incorrect. The method name must be the same as given in <function-signature> element.
2 is incorrect. Method name is correct but it should also be static.

13 : 4 is correct.

14 : 1 & 3 is correct.

15 : 1,2 & 5 is correct.

16 : 1,2 & 3 is correct.

17 : 4 is correct.
Explanation: This is a scriptlet and they always go inside the service method. ie. they are local to the request. 1 is incorrect. You can put JSP code anywhere

18 : 4 is correct.
Explanation:Following is the mapping of Listeners and their corresponding events.
HttpSessionListener : HttpSessionEvent
HttpSessionAttributeListener : HttpSessionBindingEvent
HttpSessionBindingListener : HttpSessionBindingEvent
Observe that both – HttpSessionAttributeListener and HttpSessionBindingListener, use HttpSessionBindingEvent.

19 : 2 is correct.
Explanation: 3 is incorrect It’ll give an exception saying value is not initialized!

20 : 2,3 & 4 is correct.
Explanation: 2 is correct Unlike HTTP, HTTPS uses SSL which is a stateful protocol.
3 is correct Remember that this is a non-standard and obsolete way.
This can only be done in an application specific way and requires that the page has a form.

21 : 2 & 5 is correct.
Explanation: 1 is incorrect. It does not have an ending semicolon
3 is incorrect. ! is used for declarations
4 is incorrect. @ is used for directives

22 : 1 is correct.
Explanation:4 is incorrect “supervisor” must be defined in the container. For example, in conf/tomcat-users.xml for Tomcat.
<security-role-ref> is used to map the role names hard coded in the servlet code to the actual role names defined in the servlet container.

23 : 3 is correct.
Explanation: The statement “…should provide XML and HTML interfaces…” means the same data is represented in different ways, therefore this is MVC.

24 : 1,2 & 6 is correct.
Explanation: 2 Valid only for tag files.
4 is incorret include directive is valid for regular JSP file also
5 is incorrect No such directive

25 : 1,2 & 5 is correct.
Explanation: 3 is incorrect This is done in HTTP Digest authentication mechanism

26 : 1 is correct.
Explanation: 1 is correct. A view (ie. the presentation of data) knows how to present the data and so can be replaced with another view without any impact on the data representation.
2 is incorrect. This allows plug and play between back end logic and the front end.
4 is incorrect. This allows plug and play between the data container (the DB) and data requestor.

27 : 2,3 & 4 is correct.
Explanation: An attribute element describes the attribute for a tag. Following is its definition.
<!ELEMENT attribute (name, required? , rtexprvalue?, type?, description?) >

28 : 3 is correct.

29 : 1,2 & 5 is correct.

30 : 4 is correct.

31 : 2 & 4 is correct.
Explanation: Calling getServletConfig() from the init() method returns the ServletConfig object for this servlet and calling getInitParameter(…) on the ServletConfig object returns the value of that parameter.
