GoF Design Patterns vs J2EE design patterns

Hello my fellow ranchers!

I've just started studying for the first part of the SCEA exam, and I noticed that the patterns that are important for the exam are the GoF patterns instead of the J2EE patterns. I just wanted to know how come... Is the next version of the test going to cover the J2EE patterns? When will it be available?
I just saw this post by Bryan Basham about the new test. It sounded scheduled for October 2007, am I right?
Thanks a lot
Xm

GoF patterns are fundamental to Object orientation development. It's no surprise that SCEA places important empahsis on GoF patterns since it also test your ability in UML.

Anyway, GoF and J2EE design patterns should complement each other, and you should find alot of similarity between some of the patterns. Cheers.

Hi Marx,

The GoF patterns are covered in part I as you can see in section 8 of the objectives of this part at http://www.sun.com/training/catalog/courses/CX-310-051.xml

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.
State the benefits of using design patterns.
State the name of a design pattern (for example, Gamma) given the UML diagram and/or a brief description of the pattern's functionality.
Select from a list benefits of a specified design pattern (for example, Gamma).
Identify the design pattern associated with a specified J2EE feature


In order to implement the assignment in part II and explain it in part III, you need to use J2EE patterns and most likely GoF ones.

Good luck,
Dan
