Hi
Thanks for the group, helping me in preparing for this exam.
Even though I am feeling bad about my score, but I am happy to say that I cleared the exam with 79%. With this score I don�t think I have much to advice for the people who are preparing for this exam.
Thanks to all those members who are keeping this group live.
Regards
SMK Reddy.

Hi SMK Reddy
First Congrats for passing Part I
I think it is enough that you passed the exam forget about the score.
You must put your experience with the exam.
It will help me as well as other who are preparing for the exam .
Waiting to see more on your posting.

1) I18n.
Java tutorial on i18n provided lot of information, on top of that it is good to know what are the java class/packages that support internalization and localization eg. DateFormat and some Stream class( i overlooked the second one)
2 questions on I18n.
2) JMS.
Java tutorial provide me much of the information.
i got 4 to 5 questions on the JMS
3) UML.
UML distilled is more then enough. But they may show you diagrams and asks you to identify it. or whether a message belongs to Class A or Class B such type of questions, be prepared for these kind of questions.
2-3 questions on the UML
4) Security.
I studied, Applet FAQ, Three articles from the Java World.

5) Design patterns.
Studied the Definitions and the category they belong to, how they are utilized in J2EE.
3 questions on Design Patterns
6) Common Architecture and legacy connectivity.
Please study the John Whites Note on Common architecture. Understand and think logically how each one will affect other. This logical thinking is necessary before you go to the exam.

7) EJB & J2EE
I studied Enterprise Java Beans by Richard Manson.
My field exp has helped me in answering some of the questions.
I hope this will help.

Hi,
Congratulations. Where can I find the John Whites notes on common architecture. Are the questions on security purely based on applet security?.
