This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
I have passed SCJP certification with 96%. Now I am planning to go for SCEA. I am very interested in learning and working on architecture part of software applications. This certification would help me doing that. But I don't have experience on EJB. I have worked on Struts, Spring, Hibernate, JSP, Servlets etc while working on J2EE applications. Looking at the contents covered under SCEA, it looks difficult to crack it without having sound knowledge of EJBs. Please guide me how should I go about it. Are there any other Java certifications related to architecture or any new version of SCEA itself which don't make having sound knowledge of EJB mandatory.
