Hi,
I'm building the book list for the SCEA preparation, and I wonder what people think about "Sams Teach Yourself J2EE in 21 Days".
Yes, I know, it's a "teach yourself in 24h" book, but my situation is that I have several years of experience with J2SE but I don't know anything at all about J2EE (in fact, I plan to use the exam also as a as a learning framework).
My [almost] final list (if nobody in this forum suggest other possibilities) is:
- Sams Teach Yourself J2EE in 21 Days -> To get an overview of the J2EE platform and see where all pieces fit.
- GOF Design Patterns
- UML Distilled --> as the starting point for UML
- Building J2EE Applications with the Rational Unified Process -- >for the project and also to see how UML fits in a J2EE project.
- Mastering Enterprise JavaBeans: And the Java2 Platform --> For a full EJB explanation
- Core J2EE Patterns: Best Practices and Design Strategies --> To learn from the experience of others in this kind of architecture.
And as an extra:
- Patterns of Enterprise Application Architecture --> I just love Martin Fowler writting style.

Also I really wonder if "Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for J2EE Technology: Study Guide" has any real value as a study guide. I read several posts in this forum against it.
Any kind of help / comments would be really apprectiated. Some books appeared in other posts, but others are really new.
Thanks in advance,
- Juan
