Hi Ranchers,
Just now I have received the mail from Oracle that I have passed the Sun Certified Java Architect for EE5 certification.

With very limited study material available in the market and looking at the difficulty level of exam, it would have been impossible for me to do it without Javaranch and fellow Ranchers.
I thank all the Ranchers who, even when I failed in first attempt,have helped and motivated me to carry on and succeed.

Thanks,
Anurag Narayan

Before the Oracle acquisition of Sun, those successfully completing the Architect Exams/Assignment would add "SCEA" to their names.

What would the acronym be nowadays? OCMJEE5EA? <--ridiculously long OCMJEA? <--still hard to remember

Jonnabhatla/Nitin,
I used lots of books to prepare for various stages of the exam.


Part 1

a) SCEA 5 Study Guide by Mikalai Zaikin (http://java.boot.by/scea5-guide/).For me it was the

bible for part 1, although a few chapters were not written by him, but it is a very well

explained guide and sets up the base on which one can enhance the knowledge.

b) Sun certified Enterprise Architect for Java EE study guide,second edition by Mark Cade and

Humphrey Sheil


c) Head First Design Pattern for design patters and I studied various tutorials on net to

understand design patterns from various perspective.

d) SOA using java webservices by Mark D Hansen.
e) EJB 3 in action by Panda, Rahman and Lane.
f) Core J2EE patterns by Deepak Alur, john Crupi, Dan Malks.
g) For JSF I went through lots of tutorials available online.
h) For mock exams, I purchased Whizlabs mock exams, although the level of questions is not as

difficult as real exam but it helped me to time my approach and find out my weak areas.


Part 2 and 3
a) Sun certified Enterprise Architect for Java EE study guide,second edition by Mark Cade and

Humphrey Sheil.
9th chapter of this book is for part2. Whatever be your architecture your diagrams should be

on lines with diagrams presented in the example.Like it or not, Sun likes them that way.
For example your class diagram should be one diagram and not combination of various small

class diagrams and in deployment diagram various tiers should be displayed clearly.

b)For UML, I studied UML Distilled, Third Edition by Martin Fowler.
c) I also purchased Epractize lab's software for mock assignments. Although you should prepare diagrams based on how it is give on Humphry Sheil's book but this software can give you few assignments to practise on and also might give you some ideas on the approach/design patterns you can take.

I hope this list will be of use to you.

Thanks,
Anurag Narayan

Hi Caldwell,
I think I'll go with "OCMJEA", can't make it shorter than this. Although we can get rid of "M" but the word "Master" add weight to the title.
Thanks,
Anurag Narayan
