Hi, I have a background of working in java (j2ee), xml, uml and related technologiges for almost 4 years. Will that be enough for me to target the architect exam? 1. Is having a knowledge in COM or DCOM is essential? 2. Any expertise in c++ programming is necessary? I have experience in working with some middleware tools and in workflow tools. Any suggestions please. Thanks, ananth
Yes, you have enough experience to study for the exam. I would suggest looking at the objectives from Sun's site to get a better idea (suned.sun.com). As for the answers to questions 1. and 2., with the exception of wrapping C++ calls using JNI, there's no real mention of C++ on the exam or DCOM.
