Hello,

I have my exam scheduled for a week from today, and so far I've only been studying the HFS&J book (with a bit of the Javadoc APIs). From other posts I on this board I have found out that the book barely scratches the surface of the design pattern info that the exam tests on. Does anyone know of a good internet site that has the required info for these patterns? I really don't want to pay for Amazon to overnight me HF Design Patterns book.

Thank you,
Yuriy

Hi Yuriy,

The site you want is:

J2EE Core Patterns

This has the information on 5 out of the 6 patterns for the exam (the 6th is Model View Controller - there's a lot of info on the web about that one).

Unfortunately, the web site is based on J2EE 1.3 (rather than J2EE 1.4). So I did splash out on the latest version of the Core J2EE Patterns book (it is a very useful reference, even beyond the exam).

Core J2EE Patterns (2nd edition)

That said, the web site is still mostly right (but note that what used to tbe called the Value Object pattern is now Transfer Object).

Best,

David.
