To answer questions like "How will your system scale?" (Just an example I imagined. I've not taken the exam yet.), I can write a couple of sentences to point out some aspects, or I can write a three page document explaining everything in details, which probably will annoy the grader.

So, a question to you who have passed it, how long should I answer each question? For example, is the length of the current question good enough?

Think about your audience, and what you are trying to do.

I think you can sound intelligent about the virtues of horizonal and vertical scaling in a few sentences. Throw in the keywords, and let the markers know that you know what you are talking about. Don't deliver everything you know - the markers don't want to read the J2EE spec - just given them the key points that will prove to them you understand what you are talking about.

Brevity is the soul of wit.
