FREE: SCEA 5 Beta Certification Exam (Three Parts)

Are you an architect who is responsible for architecting and designing Java Platform, Enterprise Edition compliant applications, which are scalable, flexible, and highly secure? If so, this is your opportunity to get involved in the creation of the Enterprise Architect certification exam!!!

As a beta tester, you officially "test the test" and will be able to provide Sun with valuable comments and technical feedback about the Enterprise Architect questions, assignment and essay. The Sun beta exam counts toward official SCEA Certification!

Registration Start Date: September 26-27, 2007

Multiple Choice (Part I) Beta Dates: September 27 � October 22, 2007

Candidates will have four (4) hours to complete 160 questions, which should allow you time to respond to all questions and provide your valuable comments while taking the exam.

This beta exam is offered Worldwide at any Authorized Prometric Testing Centers!

Assignment (Part II) Beta Dates: November 21st - December 26th, 2007


In order to proceed to Part II you must have passed the multiple choice part. Prometric will send you an email, if you passed, on how to proceed with Part II, the assignment. You will have 25 days to complete the assignment. After you have completed the assignment, please do NOT hesitate to take Part III, the essay, to complete your beta certification.


Short Essay (Part III) Beta Dates: November 28th - December 26th, 2007

Prometric will also be sending you a voucher number for this part of the exam. It will be included in the email that will have the instructions on how to proceed with the Part II - Assignment.

Recommended Prerequisites:

The Sun Certified Enterprise Architect exam is designed for candidates with experience in the following areas (typically 5 or more years):
-Application design: concepts and principles
-Common architectures
-Integration and messaging
-Business-tier technologies
-Web-tier technologies
-Java� EE technology
-Patterns
-Security

Candidates MUST pass all three (3) parts of the beta exam in order to receive your certification kit.

BETA EXAM REGISTRATION PROCEDURE

Unlike other SUN Microsystems certification exams, Part 1 (multiple choice) of this exam does NOT require a voucher. Part II (assignment) is an architecture assignment, and Part III (short essay) requires a voucher, which will be emailed to you if you pass Part I (multiple choice).

To register for the "Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for the Java Platform, Enterprise Edition 5" Beta exam, you may register online at http://www.prometric.com/Sun/default.htm, and follow the prompts.

SCEA 5 Multiple Choice Testing Objectives "DRAFT"

Section 1: Application Design Concepts and Principles

1.1Explain the main advantages of an object oriented approach to system design including the effect of encapsulation, inheritance, delegation, and the use of interfaces, on architectural characteristics.
1.2Describe how the principle of �separation of concerns� has been applied to the main system tiers of a Java EE application. Tiers include client (both GUI and web), web (web container), business (EJB container), integration, and resource tiers.
1.3Describe how the principle of �separation of concerns� has been applied to the layers of a Java EE application. Layers include application, virtual platform (component APIs), application infrastructure (containers), enterprise services (operating system and virtualization), compute and storage, and the networking infrastructure layers.

Section 2:Common Architectures

2.1Explain the advantages and disadvantages of two tier architectures when examined under the following topics: scalability, maintainability, reliability, availability, extensibility, performance, manageability, and security.
2.2Explain the advantages and disadvantages of three tier architectures when examined under the following topics: scalability, maintainability, reliability, availability, extensibility, performance, manageability, and security
2.3Explain the advantages and disadvantages of multi-tier architectures when examined under the following topics: scalability, maintainability, reliability, availability, extensibility, performance, manageability, and security.
2.4Explain the benefits and drawbacks of rich clients and browser-based clients as deployed in a typical Java EE application.
2.5Explain appropriate and inappropriate uses for Web Services in the Java EE Platform

4.2Explain and contrast the following persistence strategies: Container Managed Persistence (CMP) BMP, JDO, JPA, ORM and using DAOs (Data Access Objects) and direct JDBC-based persistence under the following headings: ease of development, performance, scalability, extensibility and security.

Evelyn,

Can we register for part I immediately or only on Sept 19 & 20th?
Also after taking the part I exam when will the results be declared?
Is it possible to take parts II & III earlier to Nov 21st?

Thanks.
Neeraj.

Registration will be started on 9/19


Also after taking the part I exam when will the results be declared?

Normally, 6-8 weeks after the exam concluded. But since we have Part II beta, so, you will know whether you pass or fail before 11/21.


Is it possible to take parts II & III earlier to Nov 21st?

No. You can only start part II after you passed Part I.

There's no way for them to enforce that you have to have been in the field for five years, obviously. It's just a good recommendation, based on the amount of experience they expect you'll have to successfully complete it.

Though, I now (having had time to think about it) have a new question - for those of us who (in the unlikely event) do not pass and are prior SCEAs... will there be an upgrade path? Or, if we simply don't pass Part II/III, will this be eligible for resubmission?

Hi Evelyn,

Could you please elaborate on what you mean about "receiving your certification kit"? Will we get a free voucher to take the real test, or do we become SCEA 5 certified, or something else?

Candidates MUST pass all three (3) parts of the beta exam in order to receive your certification kit.

Thanks,
Jim

P.S. I have also passed along this announcement to my local JUG and will post it to Sun's JUG-Leaders list soon as well.

Jim, to answer your question - the "kit" is a certificate and wallet card to show that you were certified. Beta testers who pass the exam receive the certification as if they took it when it was generally released.

Hi Evelyn,

If one clears the Part I will he get the certificate of Part I, or is it necessary to clear Parts II and III as well?
I mean are you issuing individual certificates for each Part or is there a combined certificate for the three parts?

Good News for me too. I was thinking of taking the old version of this exam in September. I think now I will look forward to this beta exam.

I hope this is available for people in India also. Can some one confirm?

You should try reading the original post more carefully. The registration hasn't begun yet and the first part, once registration has begun, doesn't require a voucher.

can i use this coupon for some other exam as the new version of the SCEA exam is coming up...
Taking up the old exam will be a waste and also i do not want that the 200$ which i had spent on voucher for 1.1 should go in drain...

pls advise.
