Hi,

I passed SCEA part I with 59% not a big score.

Thank you all for posting their study notes and sharing their views here.

I spent around 30 days regular 5 hours study. May be one or two days break in the middle.

I used the below material:

Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for J2EE Study Guide (Exam 310-051)(Paul Allen and Joseph Bambara)

http://java.boot.by/scea5-guide/

http://www.briggman.com/scea/SCEA_Study_Sheet_1.pdf
http://www.briggman.com/scea/SCEA_Study_Sheet_2.pdf
https://www6.software.ibm.com/developerworks/education/j-scea/j-scea-a4.pdf

I had prior experience working with JSF.

Skimmed through EJB 3 Spec and JPA spec.

Must have good understading of Design patterns, webservice protocols

I got questions on DAO, Service to Worker, Transfer Object ( advantages, when to use)?

one question on basic SOA.

Good understanding of pros and cons of two tier , n-tier architectures.

No UML, security questions were tough. Need to have a good study material on security.

There were no questions on implementation details, more of which technology to use.

I am confident that any Study Guide for (Exam 310-051)(Paul Allen and Joseph Bambara Or Mark Cade) will be good as a reference provide you refer webservices, SOA, JSF from other resource.

Wish you all the best!!!

Congrates

Would you explain about prior experience, i mean
1. Does one has to have very good understanding of EJBs or Web Tiers

2. Does specific framework helps like Struts or Spring etc. ?

3. How deep should one has to in Design and architecture.


Regards !

Thank you All !!! this is for all of you there who have helped me in my preparation by Providing detailed discussions !!!

1. Does one has to have very good understanding of EJBs or Web Tiers


Yes you will have to know advantages of using different frame works for presentation tiers, JSF, Struts. There wont be any questions about the syntax or how to implement it. We need to understand when to use a particular frame work. Understand what are the advantages of EJB3 compared to prior version. Going through JPA and EJB3 Spec will be good.

2. Does specific framework helps like Struts or Spring etc. ?


The over all important points about those frame works will surely help. Like understanding what Dependency Inject is in spring, Command Pattern or Front Controller in Struts.

3. How deep should one has to in Design and architecture.


Good understanding of Object Oriented Programming. When to use particular design pattern is definitely needed.

Wish you all the best !!!
