I'm planning to appear for this exam next month, but before that want to go thru the Mock exam. Can anyone suggest which one is worth to buy
a) Epractize Labs, b) ethuware (is half the price of epractize), c) Other(s)
I haven't taken the JPA certification yet, but have had good experiences with Enthuware.
Not only is the price lower, but the quality of the questions is good as is the support.
They also have a forum in which you can ask questions about the individual questions in the mock exam.
I highly recommend Enthuware's JPAD 6 - it contributed about a half of my success. All JPAD 6 questions are relevant to the test and you can see the similar ones on exam.
It contains four full 64-questions tests. Enthuware has active forum for support it's product and questions normally are answered in 1 day. In case any problem is found, Enthuware releases questions bank update, which can be automatically recognized and downloaded when you run JPAD simulator.
I have tried to search some information about this certification and I found something about EJB 3.1. Could you somebody tell me if there are some objectives from EJB 3.1 it this certification.
I haven't experiences with EJB and this could be problem for me and maybe not .
Per my experience
a) basic understanding of different Beans (Stateless, Stateful, MDB)
b) Knowledge of transaction (TransactionAttributeType.*) is must. You will see couple of questions on transaction.
c) Exception handling: EJB Spec - 14.3 Container Provider Responsibilities. Make sure you thoroughly understand table 15 and 16.
See below points, pulled from Mikalai post:
6. Transaction attributes inheritance - single question, EJB 3.1, section 22.214.171.124 19. Know all TransactionAttributeType.* and what they mean
Hi. I recently passed the 1Z0-898 certification. For preparation I created the list of questions/answers, which helped me a lot while preparing. All the info I took from Pro JPA 2: Mastering the Java Persistence API book. I downloaded these questions to http://jpa-quiz.rhcloud.com/. Feel free to use it for preparation.
Another material that can be used as a resource to prepare for the certification exam ORACLE CERTIFIED EXPERT JEE 6 JPA is the following android app:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.jpaexam It is basically a quiz about the JSR 317: Java Persistence API, Version 2.0 Final Release.
This app can be used as a resource in learning the JSR, but also for those who are preparing for certification, both in the initial period (to assess the challenge), as when more advanced (as a simulated pre-test).
This address the following topics: Entity Class, Persistent Fields and Properties, Access Type, Primary Keys and Entity Identity, Embeddable Classes, Collections of Embeddable Classes and Basic Types, Entity Relationships, inheritance, EntityManager, Entity Instance's Life Cycle, Persistence Context Lifetime, Locking and Concurrency, Entity Listeners and Callback Methods, Bean Validation and Query APIs
