Hello Ranchers,

I have just completed SCJP 5.0 with 91% on 10/31. Now thought of preparing for SCBCD. I have never worked in EJB and i don't even know a b c of EJB. I'm completely new to this technology. I have to start learning from the very beginning and i hope i'm in the right forum.

Really had nice time in the SCJP forum and i'm hoping that i can make good friends in this forum as well.

I have gone through SCBCD FAQs. And i just wanted to from the folks who are preparing for SCBCD, who have started from the scratch with no knowledge of EJB, how much time is required to completely learn EJB from scratch and be ready for the test? (I know the obvious answer from many people might be 'It depends..'. I just want to know in general, the approximate time.)

Hoping to have good time in this forum

Congrats Why not work on an open-source or self-taught project while preparing for it.

What about SCWCD? What don't you aim at that.

There is no JAVA EE project that doesn't use Web Components. I think one should get more conversant with Web component before Business components.

As you may know, there are projects that do not use EJBs and JPA at all.

Give a thought to it.

In case you have decided to go with SCBCD, i think it may take two months to get an overall picture of what it is. I assume you spend around 4 hours per day.

Then do a mini project to get some idea about how to handle them and assemble them with web components.

Then start SCBCD preparation. It may take another 2 months.

Good luck.

Srikanth.

Thanks Srikanth for your valuable inputs!

Actually i have basic knowledge of JSP and Servlets, as i have 4 years of work experience. But i have never worked in EJB and i just wanted to learn.
So, thought of preparing for SCBCD.

I'm starting my preparation with the book 'EJB 3.0 in Action' as suggested by many in this forum. Also i'll be doing some mock project to understand the concepts well.

once again thanks for your inputs...
