Books


Mastering
Enterprise JavaBeans and the
Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition

This book covers a lot of topics required for SCEA. Incase you are new to
J2EE and EJB this book will give a very nice introduction to all the
technologies involved. The first edition of this book is freely available for
download from www.theserverside.com.
The first edition of this book covers EJB 1.0 , so this edition is not good for
learning EJB programming since SCEA requires you to know EJB 1.1. The second
edition of this book is currently available and it covers EJB1.1 and EJB2.0 I
have not been able to get my hands on the second edition.


The following topics are explained very well in this book


  • Overview of J2EE
  • CORBA
  • RMI-IIOP
  • RMI
  • JRMP and its effect through firewalls.



  • Professional
    Java Server Programming J2EE Edition

    This book has a detailed information about all the technologies that make up
    J2EE. This book is very use full for a programmer who is developing components
    for the j2ee platform. It also contains information use full for SCEA involving
    designing EJB applications for scalability, reliability, maintainability etc. It
    also covers good design patters for JSP pages and EJBs, and information
    regarding Unit testing of EJB components, which I found very use full while
    developing my EJB components.

    Java(TM)
    2 Platform, Enterprise Edition Blueprints

    The J2EE Blue prints are very use full for understanding all the aspects of
    the J2EE platform. This is one book that you should read from cover to cover,
    this book does not cover much of code but it explains the various topics that
    will help to make correct design decisions. The Java Pet Store is a sample j2ee
    application that should also be downloaded and installed, going through the
    source code for Pet Store will help you understand a lot of topics that were not
    clear. The design patters provided with the blueprints will help you a lot in
    designing j2ee system. Each chapter in the blue prints contains a particular
    Questions and Answers on that particular chapter, which will answer most of the
    common questions, and will save you a lot of time searching for specific answers.


    ITpapers

    This site contains a very nice collection of white paper on all possible topics.
    I found this is site a few days before my SCEA exam, and I found some use full
    information on designing computer networks that are scalable, and available.

<h3>Firewalls</h3>

Links


Firewalls
from 3Com


This PDF is from www.3com.com , I really
enjoyed reading this white paper. It covers all the topics about firewalls
required for SCEA. This white paper assumes that you have some knowledge about
computer networking in general, if you are new to computer networking you may
have to read this white paper twice and pay attention to the definitions of the
various terms specified on the sidebar. I got this paper from Amit's SCEA site.


Firewalls
and Security from 3Com


Covers Firewalls and Security in general.


Amazon.com buying info Building Internet Firewalls (2nd Edition)

This is an excellent book on designing firewalls. The initial chapters of this
book explains about the various types of firewall designs, that latter part of
this book gets down to actually implementing some of the designs. This book is
not required for SCEA I read this book since I am interested in networking and designing
computer networks. If you are interested in firewalls and want to try stuff out
you could also read the book 'Firewalls 24-7' this book will help you set up
firewalls on a window machine - I have not read this book, but I have got some
real good reviews, alternatively there is another book 'Linux Firewalls' this
helps you to set up and configure Firewall for Linux system.

i18n and l11n (Internationalization and Localization)</h3>

Internationalization 

Information about Internationalization as given in Java Docs 1.2. Also read the
the FAQ about Internationalization available in java docs. 


Internationalization
Tutorial


This is an extract from Java Tutorial from the Sun site.


Java Internationalization An Overview

This is a white paper about Internationalization from the Sun Site. The information
here is much better than the information in the above 2 links, reading this
white paper will help you understand the various aspects of Internationalization
without getting into the details of implementation.
