Sorry!..am gonna ask the same question again. Are there any SCEA 5 study book? I need to complete in about 1 month. Can someone help me to find ..i went through the topics..there are too many links and suggestions that am lost.
Im planning to buy
1. Head first on Design patterns 2. Core J2EE Patterns: Best Practices and Design Strategies (2nd Edition) (Sun Core Series) by Deepak Alur
You can read the two study guide for the old SCEA exam (One from Cade and the other from Allen).
Many topics are unchanged (like Security, Messaging, Patterns, I18N, ...)
Those study guide are VERY useful.
Mikalai Zaikin did an interesting study guide, available here.
The Security chapter is good.
In the new version of SCEA, EJB3 and JSF were added.
You can refer to the first part of "Mastering Java Server Faces" called "Architecture of JSF" to get a good (and sufficient) overview.
For the EJB3 part, the Oreilly book is a good source.
