Thx all of you. All the information posted here is quite useful for a beginner like me to pass the exam. After the part I, I am now planning the part II assignment. But, I don't know how to prepare it. Is there any recommendation that I still pay attention in that part? Moreover, is there any materials/reference for that part. Thx a lot.
Hi, Congrats and all the best for the remaining part of the certification. I am also prepairing for the I part. I have a few questions: 1. How much time do you think should it take for the preparation of I part (given I don;t have any background in EJB). 2. Are there more scenario type questions in the exam from the section EJB or conceptual questions? 3. How should I prepare for the section - Legacy connectivity? I would appreciate if you could help me by replying to this message. Thanks. Vibha.
calvintai, Congratulations. I just passed Part I last week and am currently working on the assignment. I, personally, didn't require any additional study before diving in to the assigment because I've been in the IT industry for almost 15 years and I've been designing/architecting applications for at least 10 years. Java based for around 5 years, many of those with Servlets, JSP, JMS, JDBC, etc. The only gap in my professional implementations has been EJB, but done enough practice on my own to compensate for that. If you do not have much previous experience, then I would suggest spending some time with the Pet Store Application (...I think there are 3 different versions currently, each has interesting approaches and also get more complicated). Mark Cade's SCEA Study Guide also devotes a section to doing the assignment and would probably be especially beneficial to some without alot of experience in this area.
Naturally, spending a little time building the rudiments of an application or two to test/refine your ideas if you don't have experience to draw from may also be helpful to you. Regards,
I guess you have not read the blueprint, read it blueprint first then study pet store, everything shall be clear.

Dear Vibha For the Legacy connectivity, you can find john notes in prior forum. After that, practice it with the mock exam in www.moelholm.com. It is enough for the Legacy connectivity as there are only a few questions about Legacy connectivity. Hope it is help for u.

Byron, In fact, I just a beginner in that architecture part. As recommended, I would find more Java application to have a look at first. Thx for your advise.
