Came here to say that I've passed on OCMJEA 6 exam with 149/160 score.
My assignment was GemstoneInternational, and I've opted for a very minimalistic approach on my architecture plan. A lot of people tells that you need to have diagrams full of features, etc, but I don`t think the same. I think that your architecture plan must be really simplistic and avoid any kind of complexness. I've completed my assignment in 13 days, working a lot on the diagrams and assumptions.
My biggest difficulty was with UML modeling, since I wasn't an UML expert.
Does this certification really tested me as an architect? For me, no. I was tested as an architect just in the last question of 1z0-866, which asked me what should I do if the system was with a load with 200% higher. But in fact, I`ve learned a lot and this certification has pointed me to a good study rhythm to get other certifications.
I'm so grateful to those guys: Fernando Franzini, Mike Degteariov, K. Tsang. Without your help guys, I wouldn't be there! My next steps are taking all the certifications on Java platform until october ( next month I'll take OCEEJBD / upgrade my OCEWCD).
Thanks forum, thanks a lot! If anybody has questions about this cert, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
