Hi everyone,
After clearing part 1 there is a bigger challenge in front of me.
Can anybody give me suggestions on how to prepare for part 2 of this exam...I don't have any practical experience in designing an enterprise application
Also, do I need to have any software (like UML s/w)installed on my pc before downloading Sun's assignment ?
Regards,
Vishakha.

Well, if you don't have any experience designing J2EE architecture, I will recommend to start with Sun J2EE blue print , study the Petstore sample application and read any design guidelines J2EE articles....
Concerning UML tools, you can download the Together Control Center 5.5 http://www.togethersoft.com/
It is a 15 days evaluation product....but there is always a way to extend that ;-)

Thanks Herve.
What is this exam like ? Can anyone give me some insight into how this exam looks because I'm only used to multiple choice type exams......What will my final assignment (that I'll have to upload to sun's site) look like ?
Please Help !
Thanks in advance.
Regards,
Vishakha.

If you are familiar with Obeject-Oriented design analysis, and have experience with UML design with J2EE technology (EJB, Servlet), then you should be fine.
The assignment is very simple and easy for an experienced J2EE architect.
However, if you don't have experience with UML and OO design at all, then I suggest you postpone the assignment, and get yourself involved in a real-world J2EE design project first.

Hi Vishakha,
Me too, after finishing part 1, now concentrating on next part.
I think best thing to do is to understand the petstopre example and j2ee design patterns.
Sun will look forward interestingly at the use of j2ee design patterns...whats say !!
