I'm preparing for Part 1 exam, since the exam covers 1 to 5 questions regarding security. I'm wondering not that good material or at least authored to readers taste is not available.

So I would end up in reading specifications too. I had a confusion(please note my questions in security context only),

1) would you read Java SE 6 or J2SE 5.0 specifications for JEE5 exam?
2) would you prefer reading sun specification or sun tutorials or sun documentation(kind of hard to know which makes more sense)?
Java SE Security
3) books i do know one by Scott Oaks which is the current best book to read (honestly it is not that understood able)?
4) there is another book which talks about architecture too, by Li Gong, did anyone read or thought about this book?

Thanks

I would read the JEE tutorial, not the Java or JEE spec. The specification is too low level for this exam. Also, you want to focus on JEE rather than core Java for this exam.

Thanks I agree. This is what is in my mind.

BTW, SUN itself is asking people to read Java SE security.

SECTION: 8: 8: Security
OBJECTIVE: 8.1: Explain the client-side security model for the Java SE environment, including the Web Start and applet deployment modes.
8) A company is trying to cause chaos by sending out an unsigned applet that is loaded via the net.

What action can the applet take to cause untold destruction?
a) Access file directories on the local machine.
b) Access load libraries on the local machine.
c) Make network connections to another web server.
d) Use excessive amounts of CPU time. (*)

REFERENCE:
http://java.sun.com/sfaq/
Option D is correct.
Options A, B, C are incorrect because they are prevented by the sandbox.


Even can you believe, they are asking to read Practical Software Estimation: (M. A. Parthasarathy)
