Hello Gents and Gals,
I'm new to the forums, and new to certification as well. While working with Java and various components of J2EE for three years now, I've never attempted to gain any certifications.
Anyway, I'd like to start now. As the Architect Certification is my goal, figured I'd start here.
Could anyone suggest a "road map" to SCEA certification? What tests should I (or am I required to) pass beforehand? What are the best resources/books available?
Thanks very much for your input!
John

Hey John-
Welcome to Javaranch. Try the SCEA link below. You will see all the information you need to get started. There is no pre-requisite exam for the SCEA certification.

Hi John,
I recommend that you start here: Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for J2EE Technology Study Guide by Mark Cade, Simon Roberts.
This is, as it claims, a study guide which tells you what you need to know.
From some perspectives the breadth and depth of J2EE is unlimited. The guide will help you focus on what is most important toward understanding the J2EE architecture and accomplishing your goal.
The guide is only a couple hundred pages long. It does not attempt to teach you what you need to know, it only identifies what you need to learn. Which is one answer to your question ... by the some of the same people that were involved in the preparation of the certification that you seek.
Regards,
Bill
