I feel SCEA is simple than SCJD

My opinion is they focus on different aspect. While in SCEA u don't have to do the testing and coding, but the material u need to read and learn is much more than SCJD.
So it doesn't make too much sense to compare them, it varys from people to people.

I think difficult part of SCEA is coneceptualizing and making right choices.
This is somewhat abstract part than programming. Here actual efforts may be less than programming but one needs to give it more thought and study all aspects of design. So I think it is vertical( programming) vs horizontal (architect) sort of thing.

I just finished SCJD, it took me 2 month, still wait for the result.

I started SCEA process 2 weeks ago. I just pasted part 1 83% with 2 week study, now I start to work on the assignment. For part one I just read the offical SUN study guide, the small 200 page book.

I just read through the whole assignment, I feel it is very simple, much simple than SCJD, one weekend should be enough.

I wonder any other has the same feeling.

Finland,
For me, its not the complexity of the assignment, but the right choice of patterns and architecture strategy that has taken the most time. Do I go for bean managed or container managed persistence? Do I use container managed security or application managed? Should I use XML-RPC or HTTP transport mechanism? Do I have one business delegate or two? Do I use stateful or stateless facades? etc etc
And the intent is not to just complete the assignment, but to understand the concepts and the reasoning behind choosing the right abstractions in the architecture.
Yeah, you could code the assignment within a weekend or in a week's time, but, it's the design choices which will take the most time (atleast for me). Ofcourse, if you already know the "right" design choices and the "right" abstractions, you are way ahead of me
