Hello all,
Let me introduce myself, I am Greg Georges who has jsut completed the SCJD and I am now ready to start studying the architect level one exam. I have J2EE experience here at work but the exam will give me the chance to learn about many new things, especially the security APIs. Anyways, looking forward to asking the seniors here questions about this certification, maybe be able to share a little of my J2EE knowledge.
My first question concerns the ressources needed, I have read many posts on the best books people recommend. I already have the EJB book by Monsel, what about security, any good books on that? Thanks in advance

Hi Greg,
I got most of my security knowledge from the Javaworld site. (http://www.javaworld.com) There's a great series of articles about security. Especially the ones from Bill Venners are very good. I believe he also wrote a book about it.
Good luck!

Hi Bert:
I wonder if the books below:
Java 2 Security, by Scott Oaks, Oreilly
Java 2 Distributed Computing, by Jim Farley, Oreilly
are enough for the Exam.?

Hi Edward,
I haven't read the books you mention, but my advice would be to read some and then try some! In order to fully understand Java's security, experiment with the APIs. Same goes for distributed computing! Try some RMI and EJB and you will understand much more about it than when you are only reading.
kind regards,
Bert

There is now an official study guide for the SCEA on Amazon.
If you don't mind the $28, it gives you all of the parameters, and brief summaries.
People complain because it is light on material, but it is a study GUIDE, and not a complete architect course.
Nevertheless, it makes clear what is required.
