Passed Exam, some thoughts

Hi, I passd the SCEA today with 87% and just want to put some of the notes I remember about the exam.
Questions about B2B hub/spoke/exhange.
benefits of Stateless statefull and entity beans
Transaction (What does Required mean)
Protocols: IIOP, HTTPS
Nothing about encryption.
Applet permissions.
How to scale systems, only horisontal questions.
Activity and sequence diagrams
Pattern for EJBHome and EJBObject

Some questions were tricky in that they would give you a scenario where the question seem to be related to speed but the question dealt with flexibility.
One question from the back pages of Cade's book.
Resources I used
Enterprise Java Beans 2nd edition
UML distilled.
Cryptography Decrypted
Osborne J2EE SCEA exam book
GOF design Patterns

Congratulations !
Among the resources, you said, you have said, you used "Cryptography Decrypted". How useful was this for the exam?

One thing i like about javaranch is, u have lotsa people in the same boat. I wanted to ask about the Cryptography book, but Vish has already asked about it. Cannot imagine where i wouldv'e gone without javaranch.

Hello Morten,
Are you talking about Part I or Part III?
Pardon me for asking, but it seems like you are discussing Part I?

Some people were asking about the book "Cryptography Decrypted".
I like the book but there were no questions in part I about cryptography if I remember correctly.
Of course you are expected to know the normal SSL/HTTPS protocol stuff
I agree. Here's the link:
