Thank you.

is it Developing Enterprise Applications with BEA WebLogic Server (course number: WLS-102-510-xx.) ?
If so, two people from my team were on that course this past week. I'll find out from them what they thought and whether they have any advice for future delegates.

From the course notes:

so if you have a good working knowledge (ie development experience) of those four topics, you should be ok. The impression of the delegates in my team was that there is too much material in the course to cover. To quote the course instructor, 'If we keep to the course schedule we will be doing well'. They also had some issues with the course material having too many typos and the instructor being not entirely familiar with the course material.
In my opinion, you should also be familiar with the Web, J2EE (including JNDI, EJBs, JSP and Servlets) and the concepts of distributed computing.

Thank you for this info.
What we do everyday here is J2EE; RMI, JNDI, EJBs, JSP and Servlets, with Oracle backend and with applications deployed on a weblogic 4.5.1 server (cluster). I realize that I may be more familiar with EJB 1.0 instead of EJB 1.1 that WL 5.1 is using. Would this be a factor in regard to taking the class? Are they specific about which version of EJB spec they are covering in the class?

In the section in the course notes on EJB Architecture, they do specifically recommend the Ejb Spec 1.1 as a useful document (used in the preparation of that module) although there don't seem to be any other explicit references to the 1.1 spec.
However, WL 5 does implement EJBs to the 1.1 spec.
Although they do cover the EJB architecture used in WL 5 (ie EJB 1.1) in detail in the course notes, I'd say that it's not a bad idea to have a look at the 1.1 spec anyway. The course tutor may not be as thorough as the course notes.

I think I'll do that. I guess there is enough difference in the two for one to take a serious look at Spec 1.1. I have recently finished the book "Enterprise JavaBean" by Monson-Haefel (which I must say is a great book in this regard) and I believe we will be moving on to 5.1 in the near future.
Thanks for these advice and info.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
