Start preparing SCEA partI right out,I am asking myself a question.Do i need to study too deep about the J2EE concepts?Or am I wasting my own time to prepare it because the SCEA exam won't
test it.
For examples-Security. I am preparing this part
by searching the materials like Security architectures and APIs in Java,what is ProtectionDomain,Policy,AccessController,AccessControllerContext,GuardObject? What is the APIs and how these stuffs(JAAS,JSSE,GSS-API,Kerbero V5 addedin J2SE1.4,X509 ,PKCS certificate) can be
used in API levels?
Is that overkill to cover the stuffs in API levels?Or just know the concepts in shallow
is ENOUGH?
Need past-SCEAs to guide me to the right track.
Thx a lot!!

exam won't test in API level, but better you know the concepts, higher is your score.

To pass the test, you don't need to know the API level details. But if I am working with an architect, I would expect him to know atleast what is what, or he won't have my respect. So it is a personal choice.
cheers

Depends on your objective:
(i) Just clear the test and be satisfied - concentrate just on the cert objectives
(ii) Learn and apply - feel good - spend time on anything and everything that will help in making you a better architect/developer.
