Does anyone know when the new exam based on EJB 3.0 is going to be available ? I dont want to spend time reading EJB 2.0 for this exam.

Thanks

Are there any books or tutorials out for this exam yet?

I'm starting to prepare for the SCBCD exam, and have only a little experience of EJBs. Is it worth waiting for the new exam?

Any advice appreciated!

Thanks

Both exams will be available for the forseeable future.

I think that if you want to use the exam to help you in your job hunt you should find out which version of J2EE your local companies are using. Sun envisions that many companies won't convert to EJB 3.0 for several years.

The other thing to keep in mind is that being 3.0 certified DOES NOT make you qualified to work in a 2.x EJB environment. In other words, when we made the 3.0 exam we did very little to overlap with the 2.x exam. So - both are valid, and both stand alone.

hth,

Bert

Many Thanks Bert....I think I'll stick to EJB 2 for now. And thanks to you and Kathy for your great books.
