The materials used for SCEA Part I 1. UML Distilled 2. Head First EJB 3. Head First Design Patterns 4. SCEA For J2EE, Cade 5. JMS 6. Core J2EE Patterns 7. Enterprise Application Integration, David S. Linthicum (not beyond my working experience) 8. Whizlabs 6.0.1 (few questions like Sun's real questions but good for building your confidence)
I18N: Cade's Book is enough. I18N itself is very easy to be learned. Legacy Connectivity: Based on my working experience. David's EAI should not be used for SCEA. Focus on the "definition" of screen scraper, CORBA, object mapping, JNI. Common Architectures: Cade's Book is enough. Focuse on the "definition" of scalability maintainability, reliability, availability, extensibility, performance, manageability. Security: Cade's Book is enough. Don't focus on this. Not many questions (about 2 or 3) in my exam. Protocols: Cade's Book is enough.
One more thing, I didn't use others' notes.
And about 25 minutes left for review. About 27 questions were reviewed. Be careful of "NOT" and "NOT TRUE." [ August 28, 2005: Message edited by: Steve Taiwan ]
1. JMS -- Java Message Service by Richard Monson-Haefel, David Chappell. 2. J2EE and Concepts -- Core J2EE Patterns by Deepak Alur, Dan Malks, John Crupi 3. Concepts -- UML Distilled
Messaging: Good for Legacy Connectivity, loosely coupling architecture, time consuming jobs. (and JMS has NOTHING to do with JavaMail) J2EE: JSP and servlet for non-transaction, EJB for transaction [ August 29, 2005: Message edited by: Steve Taiwan ]
