Hi fellows!
Today I passed SCEA Part I, scoring 83%!

What a relief!
I read 2 books:
- Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for J2EE Study Guide
Paul Allen, Joseph Bambara
- Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for J2EE Technology Study Guide
Mark Cade, Simon Roberts
And a lot of papers I found here at JavaRanch.
Let me tell you what I remember from the exam:
- Some questions about EJB lifecycle (Entity & Session). What are the responsabilities of the container? Need to know well about passivation and for which type of EJBs it is appliable.
- Know the difference between Stateless Session Bean and Stateful Session Bens. The same for CMP and BMP.
- Simple questions about JMS. Need to know the basic of PTP and Publish/Subscribe.
- Simple questions about Internationalization. Know which classes are used for I18N: Locale, OutputStreamWriter, InputStreamReader, ResourceBundle, etc.
- Simple questions about UML: know the diagrams and what each one's main idea. Know how to interpret relationships among elements in a certain diagram.
- Tricky questions about security, involving firewall, applet permissions.
- Many questions about IIOP, JRMP, HTTPS, HTTP, CORBA, IDL. Know the limitations of each protocol. You must know how to connect a legacy application with a new one implemented with Java.
- Design Patterns: quite straightforward. For a given scenario choose what design pattern best apply for. Know real examples of Design Patterns being applied in the J2EE Platform.

Thanks all for the help and tips shared at this forum. They contributed a lot in my success.

Good luck for the new aspirants!
Now I'm walking to Part II.
