After going through Peabody's notes on patterns, I thought that there will be no questions on patterns other than the big 6. But I did see this question on www.jdisscuss.com (Test 3):

Question No: 5 (Question ID: 766) Practical Considerations : Easy
Contributed By: Enthuware

Problem

What are the benefits of using Data Access Object pattern?


Options

Select 2 correct options.

The type of the actual data source can be specified at deployment time.


The data clients are independent of the data source vendor API.


-It increases the performace of data accessing routines.
-It reduces the performace a little bit due to an additional layer between the data source and the data client.

-It allows the clients to access the data source through EJBs
EJBs or any remoting technology has nothing to do with this pattern.

-It allows resource locking in an efficient way.


Can anyone confirm with some authority that we won't be getting questions on other patterns (other than the big 6)? Thanks.

You won't. If you see an unknown name in one of the answers, you can forget it.

That�s absolutely correct. The SCWCD 5 exam is limited to just a few design patterns from the presentation and business tier of Java EE 5 platform.
