Are J2EE patterns part of SCEA-I exam? I see quite a few questions in Whizlab.

Thanks

Design patterns are listed in Section 8 on the Sun Education page about the SCEA Part I exam.

Hi Theodore,
Thanks for the reply, but here is what Section 8 says:

1. From a list, select the most appropriate design pattern for a given scenario. Patterns will be limited to those documented in Gamma et al. and named using the names given in that book.

2.State the benefits of using design patterns.

3. State the name of a design pattern (for example, Gamma) given the UML diagram and/or a brief description of the pattern's functionality.

4. Select from a list benefits of a specified design pattern (for example, Gamma).

5. Identify the design pattern associated with a specified J2EE feature.

So according to very first point, J2EE patterns should not appear in exam, it should be limited to GOF. My doubt was whether or not design patterns are asked or not...my doubt was, in Whizlab simulator there were quite a few questions about J2EE paterns. Can they really come...is it worthwhile to study them before PartII.

Best regards
Vishal

And the answer is yes - they really can be on the exam. I don't recall in specific how many there were when I took Part I, but I do very much remember taking my flashcards (The ones I made for when I took IBM 486) with me to the test center and reviewing them in the car.

I figure the fact that it's listed on the exam specifications should have answered your question.

But that's exactly whats at issue here. The initial wording seems to suggest that the design patterns will be limited GOF patterns. The wording in the final item is a bit obtuse:

Identify the design pattern associated with a specified J2EE feature

. Does this open the door to J2EE patterns? Cade's book restricts its review to the 23 GOF patterns.

However for part II you should definitely know and useJ2EE patterns.

For PartII I know J2EE pattern is required.

The thing is very soon I'm taking my exam...and just wanted to make myself better if they come or not...anyhow no time left to study them...

Thanks for help

In my Opinion. I did not know any specific questions related to J2EE Patterns. But i do know i had some EJB questions related to COMPOSITE entities.What i mean to say is they asked some indirect questions.
