Thanks a lot...!

BTW.. Does SUN has any plans for SCEA-Part 1 to include new EJB version (...may be 2.0 or higher) ? If so, any date is mentioned ?

Actually, I am planning for SCEA-Part -1 soon.. I was just thinking if I can take this exam with Latest EJB version if it were possible.

Thanks in advance..!

you can expect SCEA based on java EE 5.0 after an year or so. I heard from Bert that it's not going to be updated for quite a long time

I have a doubt.

According to the Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for J2EE Study Guide (Paul Allen and Joseph Bambara):

The current version of the SCEA exam tests your knowledge of J2EE 1.3 API. See www.java.sun.com/apis.html for complete J2EE API specs and related
documentation.

Becoming familiar with an application server is an integral part of the preparation for the SCEA. You can use any application server, providing it is compliant with the J2EE 1.3 specification.

So,


You should use the 2.0/2.1 version of EJB to the current SCEA - Part 1.

Hi,


I wouldn't place too much value on what the book says. I did the exam today (and passed), but I did not encounter local interfaces. Also, SUN does not put BMP on the current SCBCD exam (which covers EJB 2.0) but the SCEA part 1 exam still covers it. Also, CMR is not covered in the SCEA part 1 exam. Therefore, plenty of evidence that it is an EJB version before 2.0 which is being tested.

Just prepare for EJB 1.1 version and you will be fine. For the second part of the certification, SUN explicitly says that any version of the J2EE platform may be used. Perhaps they were referring to part 2 in the book you used and not to part 1. By the way, does your book cover local interfaces and CMR?

Cheers
Erik

The book is wrong. This was pointed out loud and clear in one of the forums. This is one of the reasons that book is degraded. The authors didn't even know which version is used in the exam !

Hi there,

My opinion is that Sun would have saved some time and headache for us with stating the version numbers. The objectives are not proper without them. I'd rather learn more than playing Colombo to find out what is required and what is not.
