Hi All - I just got an email from Oracle that I have
"passed the Oracle Certified Master, Java EE 5 Enterprise Architect certification."
. Also see "Certified" on the "integral7" website.

I want to offer my sincere thanks to the members of this forum for the really helpful discussions I've had the opportunity to be part of and absorb. This has gone a long way in helping me out with Parts 1/2/3.

Some of my experiences listed here - if it will be of any help

Part I
I worked my way up and down through the SCEA book by "Paul Allen and Joseph Bambara" - several times. I kept thinking I'm not ready and finally went and wrote the exam when I realized there is just one more month left for the voucher to expire
Also went through various forums, made notes and spent 4-5 hours the night before the exam reading everything. Also used Head First Design Patterns extensively

Part II & III
This forum and associated discussions - but the buck stops at Humphrey Sheil's Book, Chapter 9. Many of the design discussions here on Part II go into a level of detail I did not cover in my assignment, but I religiously followed Sheil's advice and example. Looks like that worked
Also identified and explained pattern(s) used in the design.

Part III - I was very verbose and most answers were based on real life situations I have encountered and I used those and applied to the problem.
An interesting episode. After nearly 1 hour of typing out answers to nearly 5 questions, there was a software glitch and I lost ALL my answers. After a futile and frustrating one hour of being unable to retrieve anything back, I had to restart the exam again !!!
Looks like it didn't end up being as bad as I thought

Ultimately enjoyed using the forum and the input I gained from it - Thank you, again all !!! And best wishes to all those planning to take the certification.

Congrats, it looks exactly one month to get the package since you got the result mail.

That's true, Xin. The certificate was mailed from within the country - the mailing itself happened only 2 days prior to 17th, for whatever reasons.
Anyways... Its here
I agree. Here's the link:
