Hi ,
Finally it is all over. I have passed the SCJEA ( Part I ) exam. I have scored 87% in my Test. Here's the break up.
Concepts 100%
Common Architectures 66%
Legacy Connectivity 60%
Ejb 100%
Ejb Container Model 100%
Protocols 66%
Applicability of J2EE 100%
Design Patterns 80%
Messaging 100%
Internationalization 100%
Security 100%
First things First,
Do not panic when you see the first question. I did panic. It had 7 ooptions in the first question itself. I think that sun should have given a few easy questions before starting out with the difficult ones. I think that sun wants us all to fail and write the exam again and again.
The questions are not that difficult. It is only that there sometimes are many options. Believe me when i say that when i first saw the questions i thought i had failed and what was required was to salvage whatever marks i can get. The questions are basically mixed in the areas they specify. for example we have applets with firewall scenarios along with protocols etc.
Coming to the specific areas it is very important to know the ports on which the various protocols work. The questions do not specify the protocols being used assuming that you know what protocol it is.
For example one can state that given a protocol on port 80 and a firewall can my applet work??
Thus in the above question no mention of the Http protocol being used was/is made.
Design Patterns is a very very important area. You have to get all of these right. They are very simple. One specific question got me stumped as it referred to an Object of the Java API. Any how Questions in this area are easy.
EJB qeestions are not questinons asking you the API but rather the Concepts. When would you use stateless, stateful and entity beans. The persistance mechanisms available in these three and the transactions mechanism's available.
I guess that's it for today. More based on queries. I have looked up info for part II and III. It seems in India we have to pay for both the parts in one go. So i have to pay nearly 18400=00 Indian Rupees to Sun.
Lets see i will start out with part II in a weeks time. i am looking out for getting a certification in WAS along with this.
I would like to thank Amanda, John - the moderator of this forum and many other contributors to this forum for making it possible.

Hi Rahul,
CONGRATULATIONS !
Good Luck for part 2 & 3.
You've mentioned about the ports and the protocols. Can you tell me what protocols run on what ports by default ?

congrats rahul, do u have any info on the objective 'common firewall features which interfere with protocols'.
I have the 19 page writeup on "Internet firewalls and security"
but was wondering if there is any info wich is more specific.

Pasu Jags,
There is no reference of J2EE design Patterns but you should know which gama pattern fits into the J2EE framework. I know only of 2 such patterns.

Walter Vetrivel,
Rearding common firewall features which interfere with protocols one should remember that mostly the HTTP protocol at port 80 is allowed to pass through the firewall. rest all protocols are not allowed unless explictitly granted access.
For example in an intranet similar to what i have access in office i cannot run an IIOP or an FTP as my office firewall may not allow it to go through through packet filtering. I may also not be able to access specific sites like abcde.com . I hope you get the picture. Firewalls in scenarios are killers. You have to be careful about them. rest is easy.
