I see on Sun site that the exams consists out of 3 parts. A multiple choice exam covering 30 questions or so, similar to the programmer exam but in this case the questions are about the j2ee api (ejbs/servlets). Is this correct ?

Then, I see there is an assignment. But I can nowhere find information what is about. I assume that it is a j2ee application for which you should create the code AND the analysis ? Or is it only the last one ? ...
And if you should create code, are there requirments about the j2ee container to use ? ...

Finally there is the real live standup to defend your creation (like the developer exam)

...

Yes, but it's a lot more than just J2EE API. In fact, it is not about the API at all, but about the J2EE platform/technnology concepts. It is about the toolset, and the choices you make as an architect when you juxtapose the business problem with the toolset. And it is much more than J2EE it self - since it talks about design patterns, UML and in general ways to document and communicate the design. It is also about the architecture - the benefits, pitfalls and the several ""-bilities you need to focus as an architect. So to say it is about the J2EE API will be a gross understatement.

No code, just architecture and design. You must use 100% pure J2EE solution, that when implemented works on any J2EE app server.

No, you just need to submit your solution in an electronic format. There is no face-to-face interaction with reviewers. And I don't think that Developers test(SCJD) has a real life defence either.
