Hi Folks,
I passed part 1 last week. Scoring pattern like this -->
1Concepts 100%
2Common architectures 83%
3Legacy connectivity 100%
4EJB 77%
5EJB Container model 100%
6Protocols 100%
7Applicability of J2EE 100%
8Patterns 100%
9Messaging 100%
10Internationalisation 100%
11Security 100%
It was easier than expected ! But the preparation taught so many things to me. I took around 4 months to get prepared.
Most time consuming was capturing Design patterns. Since I have been a practitioner of J2EE for quite some yrs, most of the things were either obvious or a detailed study.
I like to be thankful to javaranch guys and people in some other forums who kept on asking, discussing, resolving issues/questions. Actually I didn't have to participate actively in discussions although have been a close watcher on all threads. Thanks to u guys for making life easier !! Good job !!
Now moving to part 2....
Thanks,
--Samit
