Hi Ranchers,

I know 64% is not so attractive, but am very happy with what i got.
I gave SCEA part 1 on 29th september as my voucher was expiring by 30th sept.
Didnt get much time to study as was in canada on some project.

Exam was not easy,, trust me.. i was laughing on myself.. sometimes even felt like crying,:-

for me most difficult part was security, they ask kind of question i never even heard about.

Techonlogies i feel that were dominant in exam:-
1. JPA
2. JSF
3. SOA concept
4. how to manage transaction in integeration layers like JCA JMS web services


I have 2.4 years of expirence and i studies for about 28 hours(2 hours per day for 2 weeks,

Material i gone through:-
1. java pattern, Application Design Concepts and Principles, common architecture, security:
http://java.boot.by/scea5-guide/
2. Business Tier,
referred some site and made one example for each EJB3 component and googled for diffrence between ejb2 vs ejb3, and study through them. d
3. WEB
gone through some example from jsf in action and googled jsf vs struts,, it will list out features diffrence... and SCEA is concern only about features. so it may help
4. Integration and Messaging
only study about JCA corba as already have good understanidng for JMS and web services so took chance.

i gave suns mock exam for SCEA on 27th night, was failed by few percents but it gave me a right direction and areas to put focus on.

last words:-

Security was very difficult, the kind of questions i saw on security was not even are on java.boot.by --> SCEA --> security section, but rest its a very good referece.

pattern is the most imp. as it has the largets chuck on exam and it can be master easily best site is http://java.boot.by/scea5-guide/


SCEA is not only about knowledge but about good analytical skills so practice lot by discussions with frnds. like why jsf bettern than sturst or spring mvc,,, or why to use ejbs.. do lot of discussion like tihs it will really help.

i got 90s in scjp, scd, bcd however these 64% really made me cry for.

take care,, all the best,, thanks for yours guidance... enjoy..

Congratulations!

If I get 57% (minimal passing score) is enough to me. I think the more difficult issue about this exam is that there's not a main book where you can study about all the topics.

Hi Parmeet

Congratulation,

As you have pointed i wanted start some discussion on different topic instead of same questions like "what are the materials for SCEA?" (im not saying it is wrong)

As the first step I started a thread called "Spring vs EJB", but didnt get any good response.

Thanks for your valuable comments

Congratulations!!!

Not too bad for no a good study book. I believe that people will do a lot of better when a SCEA book is available in the future.
