This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
I'm not new to java.I am good with core java and J2EE(Servlets/JSP). Now I want to learn EJB3.0 and then spring Mvc.So I just gave a thought that as I am a OCJP6.0 holder, why don't I take my preparation a little certification oriented so that in the process I'll gain knowledge and the certification.
Also wanted to know what are the prerequisites certifications for this exam Java EE 6 Enterprise JavaBeans Developer Certified Expert Exam. I have gone through some posts and got to know that, for EJB 3.0
"Enterprise Java Beans 3.1" by Bill Burke and Andrew Lee Rubinger " is a very good book.
I'm entirely new to EJB.So Please suggest me a better book if any. Also could you please tell me how much time is needed to achieve this certification(I completely understand that it depends on individual and lot other factors like time/Knowledge,memory power). Tell me an average time if I spent 2-3 hrs studying and practicing.
The prerequisite for OCE EJB certification is OCP JP (any version). Since you already have this certification you are eligible to take this exam. Yes, the preparation vary from person to person depends on so many factors (knowledge they have, grasping skills...etc). I recommend you to develop few EJB programs before starting your exam preparation. There are many free tutorials available on the web, go through them and start developing small EJB applications first.
For exam preparation I recommend epractize oce ejb training lab.
Thanks rudi. Could you please share with me some of the online tutorial links which will help me for the certification.Also I wanted to know if I just get started with the training lab material directly without any book, would it be possible to crack the certification.
You can check the ScbcdLinks for some notes and general information.
Also I wanted to know if I just get started with the training lab material directly without any book, would it be possible to crack the certification.
Everything is possible, but I would suggest reading a book to get started (or even better: read the ejb specs). Don't forget to do some coding yourself as it sticks better if you have some hands-on experience.
