Hi All,

I have been in Java Ranch for long time with read only mode ^^"
I passed the SCEA5 part 1 on Monday, the exam is really thought.
Just want to share my exp~

6+ years experienced including:
a. design and develop (EJB2.x, 3, Hibernate, Struts, Spring, Ajax, Flex, WS, BPEL, MQ&MS Broker, JSF, ADF, RMI, Swing, and etc.)
b. conduct J2EE design pattern, SCWCD, SCBCD, SCJP, OO-AD, SOA, and Software Engineer & Process, RMI, etc..

my preparation here:
1. I took around 1 month with 2 hours(workday)and 5 hours(weekend)
2. Review current knowledge with Whiztlab and surf what i don't know thru the internet. (such as CORBA, and IDL)
3. SL425 materials for common architecture, and design consideration
4. Review JSF ->
5. Review on SOA and WS ->
6. Security, Design Pattern, and Messaging -> McGraw-Hill SCEA 2nd Edition. and
7. EJB3 -> ejb3 spec from Sun
8. Do meditation 20 minutes a day. ^^

About the exam
1. 80% are scenario based, be careful about time.
2. Lots of business tier and web tier questions
3. Design pattern questions are short.
4. Only one question on non-functional requirement -_-
5. Web service and many JAX

Unfortunately, on the exam date, i got flu and headache.
Because i played soccer in the rain on the day before. -_- so stupid
I had not much energy when doing the exam, and felt like dying.
So!, prepare your health also.

I hope my experience can give you some advantage.

Thanks you all

Hard come hard go, easy come easy go.

No worries. The moderators would do that.

Congratulations on your SCEA!

This is just great!

How you fill about your experience, was it helpful for exam?
And how about mock exams: have you used any of them? Was it helpful?
