Hi all,

I do not know whether this is the right place to drop this questions, but since java architects would be looking into these links, hope my problem will be solved.

I'm 7 years exp. Java Developer, Also cleared few java Certifications. I want to become a Java Architect and joined the Architects groups. Now i'm finding its very tough, and lost all the time.

I'm extremely interested to become Architect, also planning for SCEA.

But Examinations are different and Work. I'm extremely finding the job difficult.

Please Suggest, Is it so difficult job that i cannot do ?

Where i'm lacking in ? In what way can i improve myself ?

In what way i can improve myself ?

Hi,
Architect's role is different in different organisation.But it depends on what kind of organisation
you are in.Is it service based or product based.In service based companies some architect positions
are for doing initial POC for new customer and working on items mainly to get project.This position works
in tandem with sales team.Once you get the project the architect's job is to work in close with customer,tech leads
,developer and make sure that technical deliverables are delivered with the quality.Also provide input to project
manager.In product companies architect job is more on Application engineering team where he has to constantly
try to improve the performance,security aspect of the application.Ofcourse he has to work in closer
with customer and technical team.For architect job communication with customer and inter-personal relationship
is as important as technical knowledge.And above all architect has to be an infuencer(politically and technically) in
organisation.SCEA helps to get the technical aspect of the job.I hope i answered your question.

One more thing one does't become architect over night.It takes time to cultivate that kind of relationship
within and outside the organisation(customer).And lots of time he will be on firing line.

thanks
