hi all ,
I passed my websphere exam 158. Thanks for all those you posted information for this exam.
I strongly recommend the REDBOOKs from IBM for this exam. choice the redbook depending on the each topic.
Problem with redbooks there is no single red book which cover all topic. Since redbooks are free,
download redbooks related to websphere and read important topics.
http://www.redbooks.ibm.com/
Remember this one is very tough exam, you need lot of time to prepare
Best of luck for all ...

with regards
umesh

Congratulations Umesh!
I can feel from this forum that this test is a tough one. Some ranchers fail in first try, most of them passed with low percentege.
Which redbook do you read for preparing WSAD? Could you post all rebooks you have read for this test?
Thanks,

Congrats!!!
I would be taking IBM 158 soon. Plz give some important tips.
I have one problem-------------
Suppose we have 2 CMP entity beans like in Branch & Accounts relationship. Where do we set the navigable property?
a) The Navigable property on the Branch side of the relationship.
b) The Navigable property on the Account side of the relationship.
Where shud we use 1..* or 0..* multiplicity? In EJB 2.0 specs there is no mention of 1..*.
What I have understood is that 1..* makes the record mandatory and not optional? Plz explain.
ciao.
Sachin

These are the books I studied for the IBM 158 websphere exam .
1.Core Servlets and JavaServer Pages by Marty Hall
2.Mastering EJB by ED ROMAN
REDBOOKS FROM IBM ( in order of importance )
1.EJB Development for Visual Age for Java for Websphere App. Server
2.Websphere Studio application Developer a programmer Guide
3.Design and Implement Servlet , JSP and EJB using Websphere
4.Websphere 4.0 advanced edition HANDBOOK (use this as ref. Only)

Important tips
�Try to implement some of the examples, some questions are directly based on these.
�Trying taking MOCK exam from IBM …there no other good mock exams.
�Try your examples on WSAD than move on to WAS 4.0.
�Remember one thing WSAD supports EJB 1.1 & EJB 2.0 but WAS 4.0 supports only EJB 1.1
�Give importance to the IBM extension like Data Access,…
�Most tricky topic is Transaction & Best practices , ….be careful with these two topics
�During exam just try to skip if you do not understand any of the questions…It is not like sun exam where you have lot of time…some questions are lengthy and requires time to understand. If you waste time on tough questions , you may have no time to attempt other questions. I guess this may be one important reason many fail.
WISH YOU ALL THE BEST FOR ALL YOUR EXAMS

Sachin....
It looks like your question has complete explaination in in following redbook
" EJB development with Visualage for java for WAS"
page number 356...
topic association.

I am not able to answear your question because your question does not explain the context of relation b/w Branch account...

Sachin,
I think ur ques comes from the sample test! You know what- what u are thinking the way it works is correct -Sample test has twisted the wordings for account/branch! - It talks from the "branch side" - not the brach bean....branch side would be there on account bean- isnt it? so the navigable & multiplicity reversed.
These two properties are always from the point of view of the role and not the bean!
Hope this helps- any doubts..shout! ;-)
Cheers mate,
