I just passed SCEA Part I with 87% today.

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)

Thank all of you for sharing experience.

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."

Thanks for your reply,

What are your references for JMS, J2EE and Concepts?

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

Hi Steve,
For your study on JMS
1. JMS -- Java Message Service by Richard Monson-Haefel,

Which chapter(s) do you think are most related to Part I exam.?

Thanks
Marco

Congratulations Steve!

That book only has 238 pages! Now if you asked that for Monson-Haefel's 800 page Enterprise JavaBeans which is on the suggested reading materials, I could understand it.

Hi,
For Part I,
1. Concepts
2. Legacy connectivity
3. Common Architectures

Can anyone tell what they are related to, and are there any good books or/and reference materials available?

Is John's Notes good enough for these 3 area?


thanks

Just to be sure, is the general understanding of JMS enough to take on exam? Like its use, PTP, Topics(pub-subs), General interfaces, nature and applicability.

I mean something u can find in an article.
