I have just started preparing for the scea sertification, i am a bit confused here as everyone is talking about the SCEA J2EE exam and SCEA upgrade exam. As far as i know right know there is only one version of this exam available which is version 5 as SUN has stopped earlier exams. Is the SCEA version 5.0 has been referred here as the upgrade exam by everyone.

Also another question is out of two topics i.e., JPA persistence and Design pattrens which topic covers majority of the questions in the exam?

Thanks And Regards,

Although only SCEA 5 is available now, many people are still on the track of the old SCEA, as they entered there last year. The upgrade is about to upgrade from the old SCEA to SCEA 5.

SCEA 5, the only currently available track for SCEA, is not the upgrade, but the whole set.

JPA persistence is not much covered in the exam. Design patterns are heavily tested in SCEA test, especially in part I.
