Hi Friends,
Took the test yesterday after 1 month of preparation and 2 years of experience with WebLogic 6.1 and 7.0.
Thanks to Rahul for doing the great job of consolidating the study-notes/experience from fellow ranchers, Chris for providing helpful replies and all you great people.
Exam covers EJB/Servlet/JSP to a good extent. About 5-6 questions on elements in web.xml, ejb-jar.xml & weblogic-ejb-jar.xml. Scenario questions on JMS like some real life usage of Request-Reply or PUB-SUB messaging model. Couple on clustering and about handful of questions on features provided by Admin console. I also got 2 drag-drop questions something like in which order method get invoked on a tag libray [set<Attribute>(), doStartTag(), .....].
Please let me know if you need more details on any specific topic and I will be happy to help.
Thanks again.

Hi Scott,
Currently "BEA Certified Specialist: Server Certification" can be acquired thru prometric exam all other exams requires taking BEA instructor led classes, which are too expensive.

Thanks.

Hi Folks,
Here is the links and related information for WebLogic Specialist certification.
1. BEA WebLogic links consolidated by Rahul - http://test.javaranch.com/rahul/BEA.htm Contains lot of useful details like study notes, bea documentation link, bea newsgroup link.
2. BEA Sample exam - http://certification.bea.com/certification/certification_70_sample_test.jsp
3. A small but good presentation on BEA certification - http://ftpna2.bea.com/pub/downloads/weblogic7cert.pdf
4. Some good online and free tutorial from BEA - http://dev2dev.bea.com/wls_tutorial/index.htm
5. Question bank set up by an member of Java ranch group Rashid Ghulam. U can download it from yahoo mail site.
username : beaweblogic2002

6. Some of the important topics includes EJB, JSP, Servlets, Admin Console. You will find good number of questions on these topics with 2-3 questions on topics like JTA, JMS, Clustering and different DD files.
7. Exam cost 200 USD.
8. The best way to prepare for the exam is to go throught BEA documentations. Some amount of understanding with J2EE will be very helpful since exam covers lot of exams straight from vendor independent J2EE technologies.
Hope this helps.
Thanks.
Modified the URL to the Bea.htm file so that it works fine.

Hi Raman
You dont have to attend the classes from BEA. You can just go ahead and take the test.

Hi Padam,
Are there questions about EJB1.1?
Do I have to know command line interface (java class weblogic.Admin)?
Thanks Vasja
