Hi
what kinda efforts are needed to be successful SCBCD for a web developer.
I'm in development of web applications nearly about 4yrs by now and never worked on EJB.

Appreciate your response

Hi Ramedeus,
I think that having experience as a web developer may help you to SOME extent with this exam, but knowing the basics of RMI will help you more. EJB has virtually nothing to do with Servlets, etc.. apart from the fact that they can both be found in a J2EE app and may interact with each other (Servlet -> EJB).

The EJB technology is not hard to learn.

Regards.

Hi Ramedeus,

I don't have any real experience with EJB's either,
here's what I did to pass the SCBCD-exam:

-HeadFirst EJB
-SCBCD Exam Study Kit by Paul Sanghera
-the specs from Sun

I also did some free mock-exams on the Web and bought the one from Whizlabs
(found all of them harder than the real exam)

as everyone told ejb is not difficult at all.
Just follow Head first and you would be safe yourself.
And dont ever forget to read the spec.

I've done SCJP & SCWCD using the Head First books (actually SCJP was using the book that they had before head-first, I forget the name).

I have the Head First EJB book which I started going through a while back (must get back into it) and I have to say I'm found SCBCD study much easier than SCWCD. There are so many abiguities and inconsistencies with the SCWCD technologies that I found it difficult to remember things and got syntax confused (I still got a good score - but through a lot of hard work). EJB is much "cleaner" and easier to remember stuff.

I leant the book to someone who had never done EJB before and he also found it quite clear.

The Head First books are excellent, I like the style and I especially like that the Authors are so approachable on these forums and by email.

That makes me happy, considering that I've also had hard times digesting the SCWCD stuff.

I would suggest that you should get some EJB development experience before attempting the SCBCD exam. Then you can also use the above mentioned resources for focusing on the exam topics.
