I have cleared all three levels in the SCEA track. Got an email from Oracle that I passed with a score of 121. THANKS to all the help rendered by folks in this forum. It was hard work for 9 months
and the fruit is here. This is by far the most interesting exam in the Sun/Oracle certification as it kind of encompasses the concepts tested in other certifications like Web Component developer or Business
component developer. One also has the opportunity to exercise his creativity in designing the solution. Fun part for me was the actual preparation phase for Phase 2 and the subsequent essay.
Some of the messages posted by few members here with regards to part 3 essay exam was also very helpful. That's the reason I didn't take the ESSAY exam lightly, but went prepared for answers to Questions on
"How my architecture would address QoS requirements, how I can handle unexpected increase in load and better ways to integrate with external systems.
Thanks again for insightful comments and suggestions from well informed people in this forum!!
