Does the SCEA training material cover real life examlples? Now a days plethora of frameworks are used
in Enterprise Applications. Does this cover frameworks and tools to give a more practical overview as oppose to just preparing for the exams.
I think the exam objectives are very clear and in my opinion present guides available handle that to most extent. Those frameworks can be abstracted in proposed solution while still making them part of the solution. The focus is on how do we apply JavaEE efectively in design and architecture.
But I think day job of an architect definitely includes a lot more things than the objectives of SCEA.
