How much knowledge of Security is required for SCEA. I remember a book suggested from this site IBM's redbook. It has over 700 pages. Is it required to study of all these pages ?

I think the objectives called out for the test deal with: 1) what kind of security can EJBs/containers provide and 2) applet security.
I don't think you need to read a 700 page book to handle what the test will throw at you.

Thanks.
What a relief not having to read 700 pages.

Well, it depends on what your purpose is. To prep for the test reading that book would be overkill but it still may be a good book to read. If the book you are referring to is the Java 2 Network Security book (or whatever the title is) I've heard good things about it. I saw one of the authors give a presentation and there appears to be all kinds of interesting info in the book.
