I know there were some discussions here about the date a new book on SCEA (5) will be out, when the exam was in draft state. I remember that Cameron McKenzie was said to be writing a book on this...
I want to know, if anyone knows about any book coming out soon? Something like Mark Cade or Paul Allen's book fulfilling the new SCEA objectives.

I'm working on it, I'm working on it.

I put together a little list of books that I think are helpful for the SCEA exam, which includes some SCEA books, UML books and some design patterns books.

Recommended Books for SCEA Success

I just finished a book on Hibernate with JPA annotations, which was a great ramp up for the upcoming SCEA book. When the Hibernate book is out, I'll dive deep into the SCEA one. I do hope the end of the summer it will be ready.

Here's a sneak preview of the new Hibernate Book & Website:

Hibernate Made Easy: Simplified Data Persistence with Hibernate and JPA (Java Persistence API) Annotations

Kindest regards,

Hi Cameron,
and thank you for this update.
I reviewed the book list and from what I remember from exam objectives, topics related to web services (service-oriented-A vs EA), comparison of EJB 3 with previous versions, and especially, issues around use of web centric and EJB centric architectures are missing in your recommendation list(Or maybe in general presentation layer topics, jsp, jsf, servlets...). Also the importance of security has been increased in SCEA 5

If you accept requests, I would like to make one: could you be clear explaining 2-multi-tier, 2-multi-layer, architectures. Maybe contrasting other viewpoints on this, may help, as Microsoft and Oracle guys (MVC,ADF, etc.) use the same terminology for different concepts.

I hope your book will have size of Paul Allen's book but quality of Mark Cade's book

Regards
Farbod
