Hi guys,

So im half way through the ejb3.0 oreilly book and i was wondering just how many chapters of this book will be covered in the exam? Any one who prepared for the exam using this book please give me you suggestions. And by the way, should you refer to any other book in order to be successful at the exam other than this book? So far this book has been really good and has explained alot of concepts really well. i just need to know if this book in itself would be sufficient for the exam and just from all the chapters of this book, how many will be tested at the exam? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Dinuka

Hi,
Thanks for the reply. Just one smalll question. Does the exam require you to remember both xml and annotated formats for java persistence? Or is it only annotations?

Hi Dinuka Arsakularatne,

I have read O'Reilly book and this is a good introduction to the world of EJBs.
But for the exam, you need to know the specification up to the deepests details (XML DD included).

For me, the only valid source for the exam is the EJB specification.
Try to pass a single mock exam and you'll see that there are questions about exceptions cases or details that only are in the specs.

Hope it helps,

Beno�t
