As you know, there are two versions of Core J2EEpatterns. Old one is still available from Sun's internet. The new one (with application controller, context object) is only available from their book. I am not very familiar with the new one. Can anybody tell me whether it is possible to pass the Part II with only the old set of patterns? anyone has done so recently? Thanks.
From what I have seen, the test deals with relatively well known patterns such as MVC, Singleton, Business Delegate, Session Facade, Service Locator, DAO, Factory and such. Focus on these first. It is always good to know about the latest and the greatest, after all certification is not the end of the world
