Hello . Today I have passed the exam. Missed 5 answers (mostly drag& drops) . Used : HFEJB and the specification + ejbcertificate.com. I can only thank Bert & Kathy for the book (again) but the specification is a must. The book alone can not help you and this is made clear by the authors as they always refer to the specs in the notes. However HF Servlets & JSP was a real help (cause I had no patience to read the specs then).
Tools : Jboss 3.2.8 (although it is not the RI it is very helpful as it gives you the section of the spec where the reason for failure is ) + PostgreSQL for RDBMS.
Now I can finally focus on EJB 3.0 exam which was actually my target..
PS : With the EJB2.0/CMP persistence model in mind as an outdated design I am looking forward to working with EJB3.0 and JPA or Spring and Hibernate . [ October 23, 2006: Message edited by: Mihai Lihatchi ]
Better, faster, lighter Java ... you mean Ruby right ?
SCEA5,SCBCD1.3,SCWCD5,SCJP1.4 - memories from my youth.
I am sorry I forgot to mention using your guides for final review . You have managed to archive the spec knowledge very well for the exam . This saved me the trouble of going through 800 pages of printed specs in the last days
