Hi All Thanks for this forums and for the JAVARANCH site... it was very helpfull for me to pass the SCJP 1.4, SCWCD in 2 months. It is my first posting in this forum... hope to be not the last one... I'm now preparing for the SCEA but I still don't know where can I start from. Which books do I need to read before I take the PART I exam. And what to do to pass the hole exam INSHAA ALLAH(IF the GOD wish)...Please help me. SCJP, SCWCD Mohamed Hatem
Hi Again... Sorry I forget to ask about these 2 books if they are helpfull or not. Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for J2EE Study Guide (Exam 310-051) Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for J2EE Technology Study Guide Core J2EE Patterns: Best Practices and Design Strategies, Second Edition or there is another books will better... Thanks for help
Hello The third is not necessary for part 1... I used the first two for my preparation... I think that the Mark Cade/Simon Roberts book is enough, read the anoter as a extra source... MUST read the Design Patterns by GOF Read articles on the net ... Is very important! Subjects that I recommend: - B2B/B2C (hub, etc) - Security (not specific to j2ee, like policy, etc) - Load balancing - Proxy/Firewall's Good luck!
Hi Thanks for your help but I have a question about the Design Patterns by GOF. What is the recommended readings for this. I have searched and found that the two books below are good, which do you recommend or there is another books. Thanks for help. Design Patterns Explained: A New Perspective on Object-Oriented Design by Alan Shalloway (Author), James R. Trott (Author) Design Patterns by Erich Gamma (Author), Richard Helm (Author), Ralph Johnson (Author), John Vlissides (Author)
