This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
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.
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!
