After 20 days of study finally i passed part-1. Thanks to everybody on this forum, which help me to clear my doubts.I never posted any query albeit i always searched this forum before posting and almost found every query which i could have raised.
I mostly concentrated on EJB,EJB Container Model and Design Pattern.Studied EJB(O'rielly Book),UML Destilled(Flower) and GOF book thoroughly.Appeared some Mock exams on internet. My observation: No EJB API questions. 1.Simple questions on UML(Diagrams based on realization,generalization , identifying multiplicity from diagram.) 2.Good number of questions on EJB mostly scenarion based(when to use which EJB,role of application deployer,benefits of pooling) 3.Meaning of Non-Functional Requirements.There were two scenario based questions like which requirement will positively impacted due to increasing web-server,database clustering 4.Applet security based questions were simple. 5.One question on when to use HTTP and HTTPS. 6.One question was based on applet communication with web-server(CORBA based backend server)using IIOP. 7.Very simple questions on I18N,which i faced somewhere in one of mock exams. 8.Two questions were based on screen-scrapper and off-board server.very simple(when to use screen-scrapper and offboard server). 9.Some scenario based questions on choosing right J2EE technology.For me it was tough because question statements were not very clear to me. 10.Some questions were too long and with 7-8 choices. 11.5 Design pattern questions were simple (Adapter, proxy,Iterator, Memento, Abstract Factory) 12. I read EJB specification twice which helped me a lot.
On the whole questions were same as appeared in most mock exams. I found one link which has 288 questions ,it was really-really helpful. Finally i owe this success to my better half who supported me a lot and gave ample time to study ,especially in weekends.
