Dear All,

I am planning to take the Oracle Certified Expert, Java EE 6 Enterprise JavaBeans Developer, and after reading lots of threads to decide which book I will use, I found that most of the people who passed the exam recommended the EJB 3.1 Specification.

Question: For all who passed, which chapters of the specification should we read ? By the way, I am planning to read all the specification but there should be some chapters that one should treat with high priority as they cover the topics mentioned in the exam objectives.

Thank you all !

Self reply:

All specification is required except the following:
Chapter 6 Persistence
Chapter 7 Client View of an EJB 2.1 Entity Bean
Chapter 8 EJB 2.1 Entity Bean Component Contract for Container-Managed Persistence
Chapter 9 EJB QL: EJB 2.1 Query Language for Container-Managed Persistence Query Methods
Chapter 10 EJB 2.1 Entity Bean Component Contract for Bean-Managed Persistence
Chapter 11 EJB 1.1 Entity Bean Component Contract for Container-Managed Persistence

All the above have been proposed for future removal.

For EJB Certification you need to read.

Stateful Session Beans
Stateless Session Beans
Message Driven Beans
Singleton Beans
Security
Transaction
ENC
Exception

EJB Certification doesn't need you indepth knowledge of Persistent , there is a separate certification for that (JPA certification).

OCP JP6 (93%), OCP JEE5 WCD (98%), OCE JEE6 JPA Developer (89%)

Thanks,
Durgesh

Hello gentlemen,

I have some questions about the content of the exam, if someone can help me it would be really fine.

My question is about the topic Using EJB Technology Best Practices:
- Define best practices and state the benefits of using EJB technology best practices
- Select and apply known patterns to Java EE application design

Which are those best practices and know patterns? Where can I find material on the subject?

There are some other questions, just to be sure:
Do I have to study design patterns?
Do I have to know web services?

I guess that's it.

Thanks for the attention,
I wish success for us all, bye!
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
