Thank you for your guys help in these forum. And Thank Camilo for clarifying some questions.

Thank Mikalai Zaikin for his Study Guide.

First I have no experience on SCBCD or SCW and I passed SCJP5.0 in this July. So it is enough for me. I would share my experience with your guys.

1). OReilly.Enterprise.JavaBeans.3.0.5th.Edition is really a good book for starter. You should read it mainly from Chapter 1 to Chapter 17 and have some idea about @webMethod and @webService. There is one or two questions about it. So you guys can skip Chapter 18-chapter 20.

This book is much better than Mastering EJB, although I only take a quick review of Mastering EJB.

2) You must totally understand transactions. Including how transaction context with each method of Enterprise Manager, how to invoke in Stateless stateful session and message driven bean. And also how to work with EJBContext.getUserTransaction(). There are tons of questions about transaction.

3) The realy exam is harder than the mock exams. There are lots of questions ask you to choose two options, three and even four options.

4) Spend more time on persistence context and it work.

5) There are several questions with query language. Understand the functions like count, max, and subquery. All, any, some and member of.

6) For JMS Message driven bean, it seems very easy.

7) For stateful session bean, be careful with extended persistence context.

Best wishes to all SCBCD5.0 ranchers.

Christophe, thank you. You can put my name on Wall Of Fame. Thank you.

Hi Daniel, I want to find a job to do with EJB3.0 next and prepare for SCEA5.0 next year. SCEA5.0 needs strong design ability. Any one have any idea how to find a job using EJB3.0?

The mock exam is from SUN. [Removed illegal reference]
