My time - appeared for SCBCD 5.0 Beta

Hi, ranchers!

I just left the prometric site now, and here are my considerations about the test to those that go to take the beta exam:

- Very, very questions about exception. My hint is: study exceptions, and exceptions and exceptions. EJBException, SystemExceptions, ApplicationsExceptions, rollback, etc...

- Be sure to understand what happens when you have a deleted, detached, new entity and perform a merge, persist, etc. And one more time: attencion to the exceptions.

- Some questions about "I have 2.1 Ejb and I want to talk to 3.0 ejb", and the inverse. Be prepared.

- Be prepared to questions about a session using BMT that call another using CMT, as the inverse.

- A lot of questions of "hand-use" in session beans.

- About 13 questions about security

- No easy questions. A lot of questions of 6 itens to select 2 correct answers.

- Some questios with repeated itens! Yes, an error to YOU report about the test.

- No results after 5 hours of test... What disappoint... :roll:

My impressions where the following:

- The test is more difficult than the old ejb test

- The time of 5 hours, that appears a lot of time, is not enough to revisit all questions. Be prepared to this.

- Do not lose time in hard questions. Mark it in a paper and go forward!

So, I wish luck to all beta-takers, and hope my observations be usefull...



And... My thanks to Mikalai for your excelent notes. As a hint, it is a MANDATORY reading....

Regards,

Does core have some details about this part? I didn't find it

What does "hand-use" mean?

- Some questions about "I have 2.1 Ejb and I want to talk to 3.0 ejb", and the inverse. Be prepared.

Hint: read the mika notes.

- Hand-on questions:

1) delete a entity, merge, insert. What happens???

2) Some @Remove, @PreDestroy methods + exceptions. What happens?
