Can any one tell me , which is the best book for common architecture part. I have gone through few books and all notes mentioned in this site, but still I think I am missing some thing. I have read IT Architectures and Middleware: Strategies for Building Large, Integrated Systems by Chris Britton, does anybody have any other suggestion for this topic, any book which covers the topic.
Hello, Really what Sun wants to test in common architectures are 1-tier, 2-tier and n-tier architetures. You should know what each one is, what their merits and drawbacks are with respect to the concepts (Non Functional service level requirements - the various 'bilities'.) You should also know connectivity limitations of such architectures (this flows into Legacy Connectivity.) I think that's pretty much it. If you read Cade's book, all the word docs in the files/links provided here or at SCEA_PREP, you should be all set. Thanks.
