It seems there a few opinions about scea and exams in
general not being upto the standard .
But IMHO I find scea more interesting than scjp.
Although scjp is the base of it.
The more u read the more interesting it is.
I a sure there will be many scea aspirants in the near future or
maybe they already are.
So all of u remember :
When the going get's tough, the tough get going !
So let's go after it.
Best Wishes
Majid

I did better on the SCJP2 exam than I did on the SCEA part 1 and I'm an architect. At least that's what my business card says... I think this is due to the fact that the SCEA covers a wide range of topics and there aren't as many resources to help you prepare. Actual experience really helps. If you know design patterns, EJBs, and UML you will do fine.
Good luck to all!

Is it enough that one knows EJBs,UML and design Patterns in detail(apart from ex).What about other topics - are they not covered much in the exam?

Hi Kameswari
Though you pointed the most IMP ones but you left the Foundation.
that is J2EE.
With out knowing this what you will do with simple EJB?
One more thing knownig detals about a web server like Weblogic or Java web server will make your practical life easier.
If you ask me I will prefer Weblogic is the best because they support the java thechnology well.
For j2ee you can refer J2EE Blueprint Docs in the site www.javasoft.com
regards
Bidyut
