This week's giveaway is in the EJB and other Java EE Technologies forum. We're giving away four copies of EJB 3 in Action and have Debu Panda, Reza Rahman, Ryan Cuprak, and Michael Remijan on-line! See this thread for details.
Already i have got the Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for j2ee Technology by PAUL ALLEN / JOSEPH BAMBARA and Mastering ejb.
If i buy 1 does it cover 2 & 3 .Or should i buy 2& 3.I already have good experience in j2ee just over 9 years.
Please advice me on this.The reason why iam asking this question is after reading scea book what i have currently
iam not getting confidence i have good knowledge in areas like security,legacy application etc.Applicablity of j2ee chapter
is not at all good all i see is that they tell basics of what various j2ee technology does.JSF and webservice is not covered.
Moreover iam not finding that book intresting or informative in nature.But i find the book covering all topics for the exam.
I find the book more of a prepartion guide to the exam but in terms of gaining knowledge i find is bad.
