Today I passed IBM 483 - Java Enterprise Connectivity with J2EE. Some guidelines for the exam: - Transactions - How EJBs interact with the client/each other - Know the livecycles of Entity, Stateful and stateless beans. - The differences between Session and Entity (for example, the different methods called on each and possibly not called on some) - JMS was not a very big topic, no code just theory. Can become familliar with JMS topic pretty easily. - I found there to be a few questions on JSP and Servlet. - I also foun some of the assembly and deployment questions to be a little tricky. Thanks for your posts and good luck! [ April 10, 2003: Message edited by: Aaron O'Brien ]

I did see a few questions about design but I believe I might have had one or two questions on design patterns. I can't remember exactly what the questions were about but I do remember seeing something about Session Facade. I am not sure if I got this question right. I used Enterprise JavaBeans by Richard Monson-Haefel 2nd and 3rd edition. The 2nd edition focuses on 1.1 more than 2.0 but the 3rd edition covers 2.0 and focuses on some topics on the exam like JMS. These books are great and if you have the latest edition (3rd) then you should be fine because it covers 1.1 well and specifies topics in 2.0 before you read on.
