I passed part I with 83%.
The exam is not very easy. There were 8-10 questions with 6 options. Sometimes difficult to choose from the options. One of the options was JMX.
The following are the details : EJB
8-10 questions most of them on life cycle, when to use stateless and stateless session and when to use entity. For example there were scenario questions that required to store the reference. This scenario expected the option to be stateful bean. I did not get any questions on Isolation levels. There was a question on Transaction attributes.
UML About 4 questions on navigability etc.
Messaging 4 questions. Again concepts. Remember for some questions the answer itself was JMS
I18n : 2 questions
Security 4 questions
There were various application scenario. I felt Java
Blue prints and also Java 2 Network Security helped to some extent. There were questions on firewall being between a applet
and terminal server. Remember which protocol on what port. Already mentioned some posts. Like the questions just say that the server listens on 443 and it is assumed we know which service listens at port 443. 1 question was on the features of firewall.
EJB and legacy connectivity - 2 - 3 questions.
3 questions. Reading the definitions from GOF should do.
Also I had like to mention John Wetherbie's notes helped me for a question on Horizontal Scalability and clustering. And of course I give full credit for this forum for getting SCJP2 and SCEA
Last but not the least one is required to read very fast. And also the following timing schedule helped me in keeping up with the time.
10 questions - 15 minutes
20 questions - 30 minutes
30 questions - 45 minutes
40 questions - 60 minutes
50 (48) - 75 minutes
