Hi all,

after successfully passing part I, I would like to continue with part II.
Can anybody out there give me some advice on how to prepare for part II properly?
I know that actual experience is invaluable but maybe there are some resources out there that help to meet Sun's requirements on part II.
So far I understand that Sun's "J2EE Design Patterns", "Java Petstore" and Cade's book are some of the resources, but I am wondering if there is some further reading on how to properly (in the sense of Sun) design an architecture.

Thanks in advance,

D.

Hi David,

The three resources you mentioned are still valid as far as I can judge.

Furhter, I can recommend to read carefully the new and old topics of this thread. There are a lot of points which are helpful and important. It took time to find out what is really important. But in the end you know what is your solution for your part II assignment.

It took me about six month to finish part II. I mad several designs and the last one I changed also a lot. Just go ahead and start.

My best wishes
Lucy

I am wondering if it's really neccessary to study the entire Petstore since the Part II assignment is on a much smaller scale as far as I'm concerned. Are there any other "Sun-like" implemented examples out there with the same size as Part II assingment?

Hi David,

I have not studied PetStore or something else and passed the exam with 88%.

That is what I can say. I learned a lot by reading the topics of our forum.

Can you point out a couple of threads in this forum that you can recommend? Threads that help you especially? It would be really nice of you if you could post them here!

Thanks, D.

I am planning to use the book as a high level guide for part II. I have read some chapters from the book before I passed part 1 and I found it useful.
