Can somebody tell where I can find details of the below topics
Section 1 - Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) Architecture (18%)
1. Select and apply appropriate J2EE technologies to design the desired
multi-tiered architecture
2. Evaluate tradeoffs in designing distributed systems
3. Select appropriate J2EE design patterns
4. Assign responsibility to appropriate layers to optimize
maintainability, scalability and performance

Section 5 - Connectivity Services (19.5%)
1. Select and use connectivity technologies, including Java Messaging
Service (JMS), JDBC, J2EE Connector Architecture, and enterprise
connectivity services
2. Identify and resolve Remote Method Invocation (RMI) issues for J2EE
application design, including serialization, RMI-IIOP and remote
exception
3. Use JDBC 2.0 to access relational databases, including driver and
statement selection
4. Apply JDBC 2.0 standard extension features including DataSources,
connection pooling and transaction management
5. Use Java Messaging Service (JMS) for application integration
6. Use Java API for XML Parsing (JAXP) for XML processing
7. Use Java Authentication and Authorization Service (JAAS) to secure
your application
Section 6 - Assembly and Deployment (7%)
1. Package enterprise applications for portable deployment
2. Use J2EE deployment descriptors to configure enterprise applications
for deployment

Thank you
Sanjay

Hi Sanjay,
Look on http://www-1.ibm.com/certify/tests/edu484.shtml page.
There you'll find links to tutorials for the client stuff. Book by Singh et al. seems to be much about architecture of J2EE.
Crupi et al. is about Design Patterns.
regards Axel

Hi Sanjay,
For Section 1, I have referred to 2 books:
1. SCWCD Exam Study Kit, Chapter 17
2. Core J2EE patterns
You can find the patterns issues from this link as well:
http://www.patterndepot.com/put/8/JavaPatterns.htm
For Section 5, I totally gave up, cos it required me to spend much time on various technologes, such as JDBC, JAXP, JMS, JCA, etc. Thus I just try my best to work with it using my *existing* experiences, like JDBC and JMS. Of course, you can read the tutorials, as IBM recommended, from SUN's website.
For Section 6, I read:
1. SCWCD Exam Study Kit, chapter 5
2. Head First EJB, chapter 12
Hope this help.
Nick.

For the 5th objective,you can
5.1 - Understand the applicability of JMS,JDBC,JCA.i.e. Given a scenario where you need to connect to an existing legacy system,which technology you would recommend
5.2 - RMI basics like how to call a remote object,what happens behind the scenes etc
5.3,5.4 - Read the JDBC 2.0 spec(core and extension).Understand the advantage of datasource,how would you get it,connection pooling concepts..
5.5 - Understand the difference between P2P(queue) and Pub-Sub(Topic) messaging.Remember the necessary interfaces and classes required.
5.6 - learn how to get the parsers from the JAXP factories.
5.7 - Read any basic material available on net.
