Hi ,

I passed last week SCBCD with a 95% score. I started with HFEJB, and when I realize I didn�t have enough �code insight� on the concepts I shifted to Ed Rodman�s Mastering EJB. I did all the exercises, then I modified them, and add some more, trying to apply every concept on little prototype using the WSAD 5.1.x IDE. I actually tested all the features found in the exams objectives and beyond that.(<run-as> didn�t work as I expected) That was the fun part, and for my point of view the most useful .
I shifted back to theory , and used for mock exams EJB+ , ejbCertificate, and INES SCBCD.
The most difficult part was to keep myself motivated to learn and master a spec that will soon be gone (1 - 1.5 years or less ) , but that�s the way our job is, and we have to cope with that.
I found the information at javaranch very useful, and I don�t think I missed a SCBCD post during the last two months. Thanks a lot to the javaranchers!

Congrates! That's great mark.

I ever thought to program a little prototype, but my wsad 4.1 didn't work for EJB 2.0.

Hi,
Thank you !
In fact I used WSAD because my company is an IBM partner and I know the IDE very well. Still I didn�t use the code/ejb assistants, I just type manually the whole code and the deployment descriptor, in order to verify my knowledge. I created a �Server� workspace where I deployed all my EJB and a �client� workspace, creating different clients(local/remote) :EJB clients, Web Client and Application Client. I really extend the examples from Mastering EJB, to all situations that I consider essential in my learning process.
My point is you don�t really have to use a specific IDE to pass the test. Still if you can use the one that you usually use at work this is a side benefit because you will get better with your tool to.
Hope that helps.
