Hi, Cleared IBM-287 with 77% today. I am quite happy with the score. I managed to score almost 100% for the enterprise component development section. Surprisingly when I sat for 484 I scored the lowest for ejbs. The exam is very similar to the mock exam. Even some of the questions were almost the same. Now I am an IBM Certified Enterprise Developer for WSAD v5. Regards, Saliya (SCJP, SCWCD, SCEA, IBM-Enterprise Dev)
How did you prepare for the exam? Do you have and do you need to have working experience with Websphere to pass? I read somewhere that the exam is more related to your knowledge of the J2EE specification than the Websphere specifics. Is that the case?
Congrats Saliya!!! Can u tell us the books you had followed. Did you find any practice exam other than the ICE from IBM? Thanks -Sainudheen

Hi, I've been using WSAD for the last 5 months and that helped me a lot in my preparation. I've not done any MDB development with WSAD. There were a few questions on the test on the above. In addition, if you are familiar with trouble shooting snd tuning with WSAD it will help you. These are the books that I referenced. Enterprise JavaBeans - Manson Haefel IBM Wbesphere 5.0 Application Server by Wrox SCWCD Exam Study Kit by Manning and some IBM red books. Regards, Saliya
Congrats Saliya ! Saliya since you got 100% in Enterprise development can you do a small favour ? Can you please post the answers of ICE 287 EJB questions, on this thread ? It would indeed help a lot of people who are planning to give the exam .
