This week's giveaway is in the Spring forum. We're giving away four copies of liveProject: Protecting User Data with Spring Security and OAuth2 and have Laurentiu Spilca on-line! See this thread for details.
Couple of queries??? I've now passed SCJP and SCWCD. Do I need to pass the Developer certification before taking the Java Architect exam?? I suspect that I don't. Could anyone who has achieved this certification give me a realistic idea of how long it takes to study and pass all the elements Many thanks.
1) There's no prerequisite. 2) Depends on experience. It's been done in a couple of weeks. Working at it pretty steady, I guess you can finish in 2 months. Sun supposed to come out with a new test that covers EJB 2.0 soon. Maybe you want to wait before you buy your voucher, maybe you want current. I doubt employers know the difference. 3) Don't miss the link to the hot links page above. [ August 30, 2002: Message edited by: Rufus Bugleweed ]
