Friends:

Passed the exam with 72%. The API part was easy, but not the installation section. Lot of specific things to be aware of. I got a lot of help from discussions here. Thank you. I'm adding one more item to my certification tail

Well done!

What's next?

When will you upgrade it to IBM 399?

Nick:

I'm planning to take 287 in the next one month and 484 after that to get ICED. Does the preparation for 287 complement for 484?? I know that 484 is hard core J2EE based, but 287 is also similar along with WSAD skills.

Coming to 399, what additional features are introduced in WPS5.1 Vs 5.0?? Is 5.1 per JSR168?? Can u pls provide a relevant link? How soon do you think companies will be embracing 5.1?

Hi Jayadev, first of All, Congratulations

I think the best is go for 484 an then for 287, cause 484 is only about J2EE and 287 you need to know J2EE and WSAD, well this is my choice after all.

Regards,

Hi Jayadev,

For 484 I used the following resources:
EJB - Mastering Enterprise Java Beans - Ed Roman - 2ed
JAAS - "Java security, Part 2: Authentication
and authorization" found in DeveloperWorks
JAXP - "All about JAXP" and "JAXP revisited" from DeveloperWorks plus the JAXP 1.1 specification
JCA - "Introduction to the J2EE Connector
Architecture" - found in DeveloperWorks
JMS - "Introducing the Java Message Service" form DeveloperWorks and the "JMS Tutorial" form Sun
JNDI - Four part article from JavaWorld should be enough
JDBC - Sun Tutorial
JSP & Servlets - Read some chapters from "SCWCD Exam Study Guide" just to refresh some points

By the time i took the exam (02/2004) I had enough time of experience in EJB, JAXP, JAAS, JDBC, JNDI, JSP and Servlets, so my study has focused in JCA and JMS, some quite new to me by that time.

Regards,
