I am Web administrator on weblogic, J2EE etc and I am familier with Java programing. I am interested in SCEA. I wanted to know if I need to take the courses given by Sun or reading books such as "Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for J2EE Technology Study" would be enough.If so can I get a complete list of books needed?

don't you think 'the complete list of books' really depends on your existing level of knowledge?

Take a look at the links page. That should get you started.

This may sound like stupid question.
As a J2EE administrator, I do lot of architecture designs for application servers but not at the J2EE application level.
I know java but I am not a developer, however I am very interested in J2EE architecture. Given this scenario I am trying to figure out if SCEA would be good for me? I want to break away from being just an administrator.Pls advise.

Correct me if I am wrong but it seems to me that you are more involved infrastructure architecture than application architecture, what SCEA is about.

I agree. Here's the link:
