Hello friends, I have plan to take Part I of SCEA , is there is any version to be mentioned to take up exam? I am having experience on working J2EE 1.3 .Is it correct for me to take J2EE 1.4 .Please guide me friends.
In the SCEA there is no specific spec mentioned.The EJB version is 1.1 , which is old.Servlet , JSP etc is not a part of SCEA , but pls note you need to have concepts. To architect an app or base infrastructure using J2EE for an enterprise .. lot of things needs to be known other than just J2EE .. its
1. Documenting arhictectural and design artifacts using standard techniques. 2. Security 3. Legacy connectivity 4. Protocols 5. I18n and I10n
and most importantly where to use J2EE and where not to.I am not saying having development experience in J2EE(whatever version) does not help in SCEA, it sure does.But the most important thing is being able to be able to design and defend one's design and architecure against questions and critics.So only J2EE does not help here .. you need to know something more than this.Pls remember architects are not normally junior people ..mostly they are pretty senior guys with many years of experience.To many them J2EE is a new kid in the block.So imagine you are in a meeting where you are along with a couple of CORBA architects , Security architects , Host architects and network architects.Things can get awkward when you say that J2EE is better than others but cannot tell why you should not use CORBA and use J2EE instead but cannot give a proper reason why? Here the version of J2EE is not important..but concepts like RMI/IIOP/JRMP/Tunneling etc etc are more important. So it is important for those who are appearing for SCEA to understand that the perspective is architecture and [bold]not[/bold] spec.
