Still, I wonder what the differences are between CX-311-093 and 1Z0-895. Do you know if there is any?


There is no difference (just Oracle giving the exams a different code...)

Great, that's what I wanted to read.

Btw, if I read through your EJB spec notes, I don't have to read through the entire EJB spec anymore? E.g. do your notes contain everything from the spec that is needed for the exam?

You can can find valuable information on the Oracle website and here on Javaranch on the ScbcdLinks. The notes of OCPEJBD in the SCBCD links are all targeting the new exam (1Z0-895).

The other thing that is very helpful is the possiblility to do a search on the Certification Results forum and see how other people prepared for the exam.

Frits,

I see you made an extract of the EJB spec that is needed for the exam? (1Z0-895) Also, I see that Ivan's notes pertain to the CX-311-093 exam, and that that is the former exam for 1Z0-895? Still, I wonder what the differences are between CX-311-093 and 1Z0-895. Do you know if there is any?
Did you ever get the answer? The link you posted appears to be dead (at least, it takes forever to load). I also want to prepare for the EJB3.1 exam, and I got the "EJB3 in action" book as well as Ivan Krizsan's OCP JavaEE 6 EJB Developer Study Notes. The study notes say the first 13 chapters align to the certification objectives, but these appear to be the objectives for the 352 exam. Or at least, when searching for one of the objectives, I ended up at https://coderanch.com/t/498624/java-EJB-SCBCD/certification/Beta-Sun-Certified-EJB-Developer#2251312, which seems to concern 1Z0-352.

My main question is: is preparing for 1Z0-352 enough for passing 1Z0-895?
Hi all,

I have both the SCJP6 and SCWCD5 certificates, but I found that companies often look for Spring, Hibernate/JPA and JMS experience as well, which I don't really have. So I was looking at certificates again. I see I can either go for OCPJBCD certification, which seems to cover both EJB and JPA and I therefore assume would go a long way to closing the gap I have. Or I could go for either the OCE EJB or JPA certificate, which is newer (based on EE6) but seems more specialized and maybe not the most "bang for the buck" for me.

Also, companies don't always adopt the latest & greatest technology for their projects. So they may use EJB 3.0 instead of 3.1. Keeping this in mind, what would you recommend?

Thanks.
