Hi ,

I need some doubts cleared about the SCBCD 5.0 Exam.

1.Annotations - Is it enough if we know just the annotationa or do we need to memorize the DESCRIPTION of annotation for the exam

Eg: @ Stateless

Description

@Target (TYPE) @Retention(RUNTIME)

Public @interface Stateless{
String name() default "";
String mappedName() default "";
String description() default "";

} ------> so do i need to memorize this


2. Do the exam cover ONLY the following topics or is anything missing (Please let me know if any topic i have missed out)


EJB 3.0 Overview
Session Beans
Message Driven Beans
Java Persistence API
Entities
Java Persistence QL
Transactions
Exceptions
Security

If so then where do i get information regarding EXCEPTIONS (Not mentioned in EJB 3 Action or Mastering EJB 3) .Can i read it from Head First EJB since exception is mentioned in this book


3. Will i get questions regarding deployment descriptor in SCBCD 5.0 Exam.
If so is there any book i can use to read on deployment descriptor in depth since most of the EJB 3 books dont go much into them.



4. Can you tell me how many questions are there in the exam and how long is the exam.In one site i read there are 60 question,145 minutes is the time duration.Please correct me if i am wrong.


Thanks in Advance

Hi Nandy,

1/ You'll have questions about the attributes of every annotation and their use.
You need to know the target (whether it apply to the class, an element or can be applied on both), etc...
So I think you need to know the description of the annotation.

2/The exhaustive list of topics covered by the exam is available here:
http://www.sun.com/training/catalog/courses/CX-310-091.xml
You will be asked ONLY on elements of this list.
The most important source for your study is the EJB specification (Core & Persistence).
You can read the Head First EJB book but it covers only the EJB2.x
There are things that haven't been changed, so reading about transactions and exceptions, for example, will be very useful.

3/You need to know Deployment Descriptor too.
You'll be asked on it.

4/The exam is 61 questions / 145 minutes

Beno�t
