I attended the Humphrey Sheil's "All About the Sun Certified Enterprise Architect (SCEA) Exam" BOF session at JavaOne a month ago, in which I heard that the exam has changed a few months ago and literature covering the new version should be available in the third quarter of 2008.

I have two questions:

(1) What are the changes brought by this new version?
(2) Does your book cover that latest version of the certification program?

Thanks,

Jeff

When I wrote the exam, I found the biggest additions was a required knowledge of JSF, and information on how to easily turn EJB components into Web Services. A few new security conditions to know about popped up as well.
