Hi guys,
hope u all are fine and doing well seen couple of nice posts here. Well I am also looking to go for the beta test recieved acknowldegment but noffin after that so far.Well when I gave IBM EJB Exam I used Enterprise Java Bean written by Monson Hafel and Mastering EJB by Ed-Roman E version of book what about this paper and what things are different in this one. Can any one suggest some good webserver other than JBoss because its some how troublesome to use JBoss.

IBM Certified Developer for Enterprise Connectivity with J2EE ?
I didn't know there is such certification. I guess you just passed Enterprise Connectivity test, but it doesn�t give you the right to say you are IBM Certified. Your potential employer might check it with IBM, and IBM will definitely not like it.

Howdy -- if you are preparing for the exam, you can do it with the J2EE reference implementation. It's VERY easy to set up, and runs on everything (I have it running on my Mac.)
It's not a production server, obviously, but for learning and developing and testing components, it works well. It has deployment tools to help you build the deployment descriptor and create the ejb-jar. If you're looking for something simple, that's my recommendation. Plus, using the RI will help guarantee that you aren't working with vendor specific features that go way outside the specification.

Thanks Kathy I have used it before and i am comfortable with that and as far as stara ur question is concerned its a part of Connectivity test is part of Enterprise Architect certification and once u passed that u are certified atleast in area which u have passed so u have right to use word certified.IBM won't mind it infact the logo embossed on your marksheet contains word 'IBM Certified'.

BEA now has a developer's program which allows you to download their products and learn from them indefinately (no longer the one-month evel licences). So you could use Weblogic for preparation.

It is not a matter of being comfortable. To use IBM trademarks you need to be in Agreement with IBM. If you don�t have such agreement you are not authorized to use IBM trademarks. Another issue is that the Enterprise Connectivity test is not associated with IBM Certified Developer designation, but with IBM Certified Enterprise Developer. There is many different certifications offered by IBM with word �Developer�.
� IBM Certified Developer
� IBM Certified Developer Associate
� IBM Certified Associate Developer
� IBM Certified Application Developer
� IBM Certified Solution Developer
� IBM Certified Enterprise Developer
I agree. Here's the link:
