Greetings everyone,

I am the newest member here at javaranch and this my first post.

I cleared part I of SCEA couple of weeks ago and for Part II I would like to use Java EE 5.0 version to prototype the assignment.

So, two questions:
a) I am assuming using Java EE 5.0 should be ok - is that right?
b) Anyone got any idea when is EE 5.0 being released? (tried google'ing but didn't get any relevant results).

PS: I've been following some threads on here for last few days now - must say its a pretty impressive Java community out here :-)

Cheers,

Then why do you want to use ver 5.0 ???

This exam is more towards architecting and designing a solution for a given scenario. I am sure the technology shouldn't really matter because this exam has been around for years now and people might have started with the early versions of J2EE(from EJB1.0..... 2.1... ) to create a solution. Also the graders must be pretty used to seeing these versions in the assignment that they grade. Now when you want to use the latest EE 5.0, I am not saying it is NOT the right choice. But you may have to strongly justify about the different choices that you are making. I have submitted my assignment last week without even mentioning which version I am using :roll: .

Anyway, all the best for your preparation !!!

Thanks for the best wishes :-)

Re. your Q, I want to use 5.0 just for the kicks ...kiddin. Actually been reading reviews about EJB 3.0 and want to design as well implement a prototype for the assignment using 5.0. Also, what you said about justification, well I can justify my choices only after I explore them, right?

cheers
