Hi guys

I am taking my part 3 next week, just wondering if there are any sample questions I can look at. I know it's not possible to get answer key to these question as they are based on my part 2 assignment, I just want to get an idea on what kind of questions will show up in the exam.

thanks!!

Someone posted sample questions here. The samples don't help much though - because as you noted, questions are about your solution. Also if you check my signature, I mention two types of questions in my blog post.

Also, epractizelabs sells part 2/3 sample questions. That doesn't apply to you since you have already done part 2.

Don't worry! If you did the assignment yourself, you already thought about the things that are in part 3 and will be fine.

Thanks!! that's very helpful, another question I have is, is there limit to the number of words I need to provide for each answer? like how many words do I have to provide at least?

There isn't a limit. I can't imagine you can answer it in less than 100-200 words though.

Hi Yue
When I passed the certification, I braced myself answering every type of question that I thought could appear. Here some of them:
*) How does your design handle availability? Why did you choose it? pros and cons of your approach?
*) How does your design handle reliability? Why did you choose it? pros and cons of your approach?
*) How does your design handle scalability? Why did you choose it? pros and cons of your approach?
*) How does your design handle performance? Why did you choose it? pros and cons of your approach?
*) How does your design handle security? Why did you choose it? pros and cons of your approach?
*) How does your design handle extensibility? Why did you choose it? pros and cons of your approach?
*) How does your design handle maintainability? Why did you choose it? pros and cons of your approach?
*) How does your design handle manageability? Why did you choose it? pros and cons of your approach?
*) Set of design patterns on which layer and why ?
*) How does your design support session/state handling?
*) How does your design handle persistence?
*) How does your client tier talk to business tier?
*) How does your design handle Qos 5 Sec in peak time?
*) How does your design handle transactions?
*) How does your design handle authentication and authorization?
*) What technology you have used in presentation and business tier why ?
*) How many SB's you used and purpose of them?
*) Why have you chosen framework If any If not why not ?
*) Be prepared to write about all QoS stuff like scaling, reliability, availability and all that, why you choose one technology over the other.

14) How does your design support session/state handling?
15) Which design pattern you used for persistence and why.

You can prepare answer for the following questions based on your design solution.

- Justify your design solution, why you used this kind of architecture and why not other choices?
- The main factor in your architecture is scalability and performance. How your design can meet these requirements?
- Security; How well you utilized JAAS and JEE security features in your design to meet your requirements?

These are basic design questions anybody can ask from Java Architects. You need to prepare more about your design patterns/frameworks/components/API's used in your design.

Hope you can easily clear your essay exam. Good luck !
