Hi,

The SCEA part I covers only EJB 1.1 spec if i am not mistaken for the

examination, which i think is too old.

So is it worth to do the SCEA or take up the other exams like SCWCD,SCBCD

and the Web Services exam.


If the new exam schedule is coming up,can the moderator help us to know

when it will be released.

Thanks in advance

No one knows when the beta exam will exactly be launched. But approximately, it will be around September or October. My suggestion would be go for other exams first and then when SCEA beta is launched, go for it...

The concept behind the architect certification is primarily focused designing and architecting robust software systems . the J2EE version hardly matters . What matters is a good understanding of design patterns , security , messaging ,UML etc when applied to the J2EE concepts.

The actual test is not about syntax , EJB 1.1 . You do have a couple of questions on transactions and security , but mostly to highlight the fact that the J2EE container provides these out of the box Vis-a-vis you building it yourself .

So taking it is worth while , because the common pieces like design patterns ecurity , uml etc are here to stay , the J2EE version matters for just 3/11 sections.

Huh. And here, I just seriously started thinking about doing SCEA in the coming months. Maybe I ought to wait for the beta and keep studying in the meantime.

A few days ago a similar discussion caught my attention. I have offered my two cents worth and perhaps we should continue this discussion under the old thread.
