Apparently this class is full, but they will accept your application and might let you know of similar future classes. Be sure to include some experience info - apparently very experienced people get moved to the front of the line.

>
> Building robust enterprise applications requires a

> will learn how to address flexibility, performance,

> applications. Based on the material found in the J2EE
> companion book from Sun BluePrints "Designing Enterprise
> Applications" and additional examples drawn from the
> real-world experiences of Sun's Java Professional
> Services,
> this seminar provides a fast-track and immediately
> applicable learning experience for system architects.
>
>
> WHO CAN BENEFIT
>
> Enterprise application architects, system analysts, and
> senior developers who require insight into the J2EE

> to
> independent software vendors (ISVs) and consultants who
> are
> building, deploying, and interfacing with J2EE
> applications.

Cham you are so funny by bringing a very very old thread. How could you do that? Please have a look at the date of the original post (posted Wednesday, April 19, 2000 6:48 PM ) before make it alive.

Good luck to you

Thanks Jijo.

This course still exists: Developing Architectures for Enterprise Java Applications (SL-425) but it is far from free, it costs US$ 2,400.

(Please don't wake the zombies)
