I just made up some questions that might be of use to some of you folks that would like to refresh the concepts... It will be nice if we can all dump sample questions in a specific, acceptable format in one location for easy reference in the future. That will serve as a mock-questions repository of some sort. Those of you can think or have come across any sample questions, please feel free to add to this.

25. Windoze Inc, is planning to implement an Enterprise wide integration of all their applications. They have chosen to apply the Hub-and-Spoke model of Enterprise Integration, where a central hub will facilitate all information sharing between applications, in the form of documents. Applications can post and receive documents to this central hub. Each application
will register themselves with this central hub through an administrative interface. The Central hub sends notifications to the registered applications when a specific document of interest, arrives at the hub. The application upon receiving the notification may choose to download the documents.
What is the most appropriate J2EE technology that can be used to implement this Enterprise Integration.
a. Model the central hub as a mail server and the individual applications as JavaMail clients.
b. Model the central hub as a JMS provider and individual applications as JMS clients. Use a publish-subscribe messaging domain.
c. Model the central hub as a JMS provider and individual applications as JMS clients. Use a point-point messaging domain.
d. Model the central hub as a Session Bean and individual applications as EJB clients.

26. MicroSucks Corp is planning to implement web based data entry application to collect information from business partners. The data received is to be transformed to a pre-defined format and dispatched from the web tier to a protected backend mail service (behind the firewall) over SMTP
How will you design the web tier for this application using J2EE technology?
a. Use Servlets/JSP to provide the user interfaces and accept data from the user over HTTP. Use Java classes to transform the data received from the user. Use JavaMail clients to dispatch the transformed data to the backend mail server.
b. Use Session Beans to transform the incoming data. Use applets to communicate with the EJB tier over RMI-IIOP, at the client tier. Use JavaMail clients to dispatch the transformed data to the backend mail server.
c. Use applets to perform the data transformation and generate a flat file at the client, after accepting data input from the user. The user can directly email this flat file to the backend mail server through a third-party email client

27. In EJBs, Which two callback methods can be used for synchronizing the bean's state with the database
a. ejbStore() and ejbLoad()
b. ejbActivate() and ejbPassivate()
c. ejbStore() and ejbPasivate()
d. ejbLoad() and ejbActivate()

28.Which type of EJBs are ideal to model multiple rows of read-only data?
a. Entity Beans
b. Session Beans
29. When does an Entity Bean transition from Pooled State to Ready state
a. when create() is invoked on EJBHome
b. when a find method is invoked on EJBHome
c. when a BEan is activated by the container
d. when a BEan is passivated by the container
30. When is unsetEntityContext() invoked on an Entity bean?
a. When the entity bean is to be garbage collected
b. After an entity bean is garbage collected
c. after the finalize() method has been invoked on the EntityBean

Thanks, JiaPei. I guess we all share a symbiotic relationship. We take some and we give some
Maggie....Wuz debating if I should post the answers but I guess I'll do it. I'll open a separate thread and provide links to it. This way the answers and questions can evolve independently...(Smells like Bridge Pattern...). Also, people can have two windows open instead of having to scroll up and down to check the answers.... Meanwhile, am posting some more questions.....

31. In EJB the timeout property is defined in the deployment descriptor.

d. All of the above
33. The create() method in the Home Interface of a Stateless Session Bean may contain arguments?

d. None of the above
36. Is the SessionContedt and JNDI ENC available to the bean instance during ejbREmove() operation?

b. false
37. Stateless Session beans are lightweight objects and offer good performance in comparison with Stateful session beans.

40. Blue Screen of Death Inc has an old order entry system that is part an integrated suite of ERP modules. In this system the business logic surrounding the Order Entry Process is encapsulated as database Stored Procedures. The company wants to web enable this Order Entry System so that their customers can search through the products catalog and place orders over the internet. Assuming that the ERP's RDBMS supports JDBC compliant drivers, how will you propose to implement a solution for this initiative using J2EE technology?
a. Use Servlet and JSP for generating the web interfaces. Use Entity Beans to represent the business entities. Rewrite the business logic of the backend database stored procedures as Session Beans.
b. Use Servlet and JSP for generating the web interfaces. Use Session Beans to represent the business entities. Encapsulate the business logic using Entity beans but reuse the Backend stored procedures through JDBC.
c. Use Servlet and JSP for generating the web interfaces. Use Entity Beans to represent the business entities. Encapsulate the business logic using SEssion beans but reuse the Backend stored procedures through JDBC.
d. Use Servlet and JSP for generating the web interfaces. Use Entity Beans to represent the business entities. Invoke JDBC calls directly from the servlet to communicate with the ERP's database

thanks for posting sample Question.
it would be nice if we start giving our answer and then look for rihgt answer along some justification this would make understanding batter rather then just memorizing the possible answer...
if so body likes idea please feel free to share his openion.

Thanks for this wonderfull collection of questions but your answers are wrong.
I just looked up till 5th answer and atleast 3 are wrong.
1. May be is right.
2. You read it as 'optional' where as question says 'not optional'.
3. SSL works on port 993, so D is right.
4. Ok
5. it's C
Please remove/review them urgently lest others will end up confused.
