Hi All,

My name is Jay and I have total of 7.5 years of I.T experience. Recently I decided to achieve OCMJEA certification for improving my profile and getting better opportunities.

The problem is I am not able to get specific books which I should focus on to prepare for this exam (In case of SCJP and SCWCD it was easier to prepare as we had specific book to focus viz books by Kathy Sieera) .

Please suggest me which books I should focus on for clearing this exam. For now I have just purchased Whizlabs exam simulator.

Please help.

Let me quote myself:

I read Adam Bien's Java EE patterns book.

Reviewed Core J2EE Patterns 2nd edition.

Reviewed GoF Design Patterns - used mostly Wikipedia.

Read some security article from Java EE tutorial: http://docs.oracle.com/javaee/6/tutorial/doc/bnbwy.html

You should know Java EE APIs/technologies - what they do and when to apply them best: JSP, Servlets, JSF, JCA, JMS, JDBC, LDAP, EJB 3, JPA, JAX-WS, JAX-RS, REST, SOAP, StAX, JSON/JSONP -- I had these knowledge, because I am using Java EE for long time (did not read any specially for the exam).

Also, there is a OCM JA links page

I suggest you to read feedbacks of those who passed on this forum. NOTE: Java EE 6 Architect exam is hard, for example I failed first time.
