Hello Guys,
Is the Java EE 5 tutorial from Sun any use for the Certification preparation? I'm a newbie and trying to figure what material to read. Thanks

Rama,
I'm also studying for the SCEA5, and I also am doing the JEE5 Tutorial. It is of minimal help, in my opinion. It's geared towards full blown JEE development (that is, actual coding and building web apps and EJB apps), but no part of the SCEA5 has any coding in it at all. So, the tutorial wil give you good background information, but you have run into the "SCEA5 wall" as I will call it; the shear lack of SCEA5 resources.

So, previous 'pathfinders' that came before us and dared to take the SCEA5 (with virtually no resources) have reported a book list worth reading, and there is a general consensus that the ePractice exam available at Sun's website for $55 is 'most likely' worth doing, if not expensive. There are no high-quality SCEA5 mock exams available, to my knowledge, as of right now. Here are two useful posts from SCEA5 test takers:

Selina Tan:
I purchased the ePractice exam
Reason:
- only exam ard that is for SCEA 5
- the price is actually cheap as compare to whizlab (SCEA 2)

For the materials used.....i will list it by section ok?
Hope this list help those who are preparing the certification too
Section 1-
Practical Software Estimation: (M. A. Parthasarathy). (Note: I didn't read this book... for this section actually quite straight forward... if you have purchase the ePractice exam, from the answer & reference you will be able to tell what is reqd in the exam)
Section 2-
http://java.boot.by/scea5-guide/ch02.html
Note: can't find any reference for the objective "Explain appropriate and inappropriate uses for web services in the Java EE platform"
Section 3-
http://java.boot.by/scea5-guide/ch0.html
Nicholas Kassem, Enterprise Team. Designing Enterprise Applications with the Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition, Second Edition

Enterprise Blueprints
Section 4-
- Java EE tutorial
- Designing Enterprise Applications with the Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition, Second Edition

Note: only score 37% for this section... hee... so.... it means the material i used is not enough....
Section 5-
- Java EE tutorial
- Designing Enterprise Applications with the Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition, Second Edition
Section 6-
ePractice exam - kind of deduced the pattern on the question that will be asked....
Section 7-
http://java.boot.by/scea5-guide/ch07.html
GoF Patterns & core j2ee patterns
Section 8-

Last year in October already I passed SCEA 5 Part 1 BETA.
I don't know the reasons but for submitting the new SCEA II Assigment was necessary retake SCEA 5 310-052.
Today I passed the exam with 96% 62 of 64 correct questions.

SECTION SCORE WERE:

Aplication Design Concepts and Principles...........77
Common Architecture ...............................100
Integration and Messaging..........................100
Business Tier Technologies.........................100
Applicability of Java EE Technology................100
Patterns...........................................100
Security...........................................100

Actually I'm Sun Instructor Courses in Colombia. The exam was easy for me because I teach SL425 Sun Microsystems Course to some people and engineers.

Material of study:
1. SCEA 5 Study Guide java boot http://java.boot.by/scea5-guide/
2. New MacGraw Hill SCEA Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for Java EE Study Guide
3. Sun J2EE Patterns catalog. Some questions about Service to Worker, Facade, Service Activator.
4. Manning EJB 3.0 Book for questions about new Web Services in Stateless EJB Session
5. SL425, 00226 Manuals from Sun Microsystems Courses. OO226 is excelent to make the assigment, SL425 also for the assignment and the exam too.

Recommendations: Read carefully each questions before marking, some questions so confused in the scenary, another really easy.

Thanks,

"Rama",
Welcome to JavaRanch!

We're pleased to have you here with us here on the ranch, but there are a few rules that need to be followed, and one is that proper names are required. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it.

In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious. Initials are OK for the first and middle names but not the last. You can change it here
