Hi all,

I was searching for books to prepare for the SCEA/OCMJEA certification. I found the SCEA Books through the SCEA links (updated december 2010).
Most of these books seem "somewhat" outdated (the design patterns book is from 1994).

Surely there must be more recent alternatives of the same quality availabe for some of these books.
If you know of any, please add a reply with details of the book to this topic!

This is what I have found so far through the links to Amazon:
2010: Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for Java EE Study Guide (2nd Edition)
2007: Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for Java EE Study Guide (Exam 310-051)
2001: Java Security
???: Professional Java Server Programming, J2EE 1.3 Edition
2000: IT Architectures and Middleware: Strategies for Building Large, Integrated Systems
2002: Applied Java Patterns
2001: Software Architecture: Organizational Principles and Patterns
???: Design Patterns Explained: A New Perspective on Object-Oriented Design
???: UML Distilled
1999: Enterprise Java with UML
1994: Design Patterns
2000: Java Design Patterns: A Tutorial
???: Java and UML
2001: Java Internationalization
2000: Java Message Service
2001: Enterprise JavaBeans
2004: Mastering Enterprise JavaBeans
2003: Head First EJB: Passing the Sun Certified Business Component Developer Exam

Thanks in advance,

author & internet detective

The design patterns book is a classic so it still applies. For JEE, I'd use the JEE 5 equivalents of those books.
