Hi Ranchers,
I'm preparing for the SCBCD exam (CX-310-091). I'm referring Sun Education's web site for exam specs. I can see that the exam expects us to know both annotations and XML to configure enterprise apps. For instance, one of the exam objects says:

Describe the use of annotations and XML mapping files, individually and in combination, for object-relational mapping.


Does the real exam grills on XML usage? or, it's mainly annotation based questions?

Thanks,
Reema

Hi

I have not found any question on syntax of XML and annotation. So there is no need to memorize xml and annotation exact syntax and their subcomponent. There are question on exact way to use both annotation and xml for defining EJB component.

Thanks

My real fear is that I have no prior experience with EJB 2. I've started learning EJB 3.0 with annotations. I know that Java SE 5 annotations make XML DDs optional. But, does the exam has questions only on annotations? or, it has a mix of questions showing both XML code snippet and annotations?

According to my mock exams experience (from Entuhuare), you might find some xml definitions, which are typically correct.
Sometimes, you find a single-choice question on the correct xml form, but they are usually rather simple.
I suggest you to memorize the xml form without losing too much time with details: simply, memorize the typical activities.

Been there yesterday. No questions on XML DDs. Here's my experience.

Good luck,
