What does it take to become a Java Architect instead of a Java Programmer? read books, take design classes, or anything else?

Experience.

Reading books and taking classes is only one way of improving your skills as an architect. Neither can fully replace hands-on experience in real world projects. There's some things you can only learn by having done the mistakes yourself...

This book gives you the overview of J2EE, it does not aim to help you become SCEA.

Some people who has no design experiences can still pass SCEA, but this somehow maybe meaningless, as what we really need to learn is how to design, not how to *create* a design to pass the exam.

You may pass the exam, but you may not be able to do real system design, as the scope of exam is usually smaller than a real system.

And, I dont believe there is a bible that can make a person becomes an Architect after reading it. If there exists, then all of us can become Architect easily.
