Hi guys,
I passed step II& III today. I was thinking posting a message like this is silly, but I can not help doing it. Yesterday, I passed that component exam. Right now , I got all Java certifications: programmer, developer, web developer, and architect.
I got a low score on architect project(76%). Most of my certification is pass on low scores. Programmer 83%, component 77%, architect step I 79%. In fact, the IBM WebSphere 489 is the lowest 62%. Developer is the highest one 145.
As far as architect project is concerned, I think we should spend more time on component diagram. Although it is one diagram, it is 40 points. Don't spend time on sequency diagram, it is only 20 points. A 'just so so class diagram' is fine. So if you get 20 + 35(component) + 15, you will pass.

Hi Don,
The time frame:
Sun Certified Java Programmer for Java 1.2 (5/2000)
Sun Certified Web Component Developer for J2EE(01/2002)
Sun Certified Java Developer for Java 1.2(07/2001)
Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for J2EE(09/2001 - 01/2002)
Component is the easiest. Programmer is harder but right now 61% is pass so it is easier. A year ago, you needed 71% to pass. You need to finish a project to get developer certification and it may take you one month to do the coding. Architect is the hardest. First, you need to do some reading to pass a multiple choice exam. The project may take you one month to finish.

Adithya,

I used a facade stateful session bean and serveral entity beans. Also, don't forget to deal with Java client. Some people forget to provide class or component diagrams for Java client. Explain your stuff. A diagram itself is not enought. I spend about 8 pages on explaning what I am doing. However, most of explanation are charts. I do not think Sun people will like to read text.
Again, be very careful when you draw the component diagram. Provide as much information as possible in component diagram.

Oh, I am sorry. I should make myself clear.
I was asking you: what is your time for 1.5k swim, 40k bike, and 10k run?
