I'm plan on beginning the OCMJEA certification. I have 6 years experince as a software devoper/architect and have professional experiences with UML, EJB
services and Application servers such as Tomcat
adn Websphere. I have found the following books relevant for me to read in order to pass the first exam:
Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for Java
EE Study Guide (2nd Edition)
UML Distilled: A Brief Guide to the Standard Object Modeling Language (3rd Edition)
Core J2EE Patterns
: Best Practices and Design Strategies (2nd Edition)
I plan on buying them all on Kinddle so that i have it all on my ipad - any experiences here? I would really like to get som oppinions on my book choices based on your guys experinces. Are they relevant? Are any of them outdated? Do you know any better alternatives? Are there some areas where I might need an extra book? The more technical parts og J2EE technologies I plan on fetching from online resources - do you find that sufficient?
I'm looking forward to some feedback from experienced architects ;) Thanks in advance!
