Trust me that's what happens in movies.What all I feel that can happen after SCEA is people will offload lots of work on you now as they know for sure that you can get things done.Also dont forget to watchout if your name gets in to kick off list because of market shake up or Wall street fiasco :-).
Hi Bert,

The reason for me choosing this book over others in the market is because of following points:

1)This has a label which reads scjp1.6
2)It adds the aspect of humor---> I guess we need it.
3)It's as if some one is teaching you virtually.I have started to pamper myself with this book I would always prefer this approach to a dogmatic pedagogue.

Thanks for all of your effort.

Sorry my ignorance, but where the people see the results?


You can use the following links -->This is most accurate

In the above link you would use the same user id and password that you
have used to upload the assignment.>It takes time to get updated here

You may have to create a user ID and password for this link.

Hi All,

Thanks to divine guidance that I have recieved through JavaRanch.I was able to clear SCEA with 84 percent.I was looking for a century there, you know..Grr!!.But I am happy for the mark I made.Since the day I ventured to waters of Java it was my dream to get certified as an Architect.Finally the day has come.I knew my result 4 days ago but took me few days to return to normal life from excitement and publish the results here.Here is my final grading.

What I could relate from my experience is, reading does not help at all.Its all with the application and solving the issues that arise from applying the knowledge turns you to a real J2EE/JEE Architect.

Hi Marcus,

Yes, I am in about the exact same situation with you

Just about preparing for SCWCD as well. I am actually curious in how much Java related material should I have before immersing myself into SCEA, like JSP, EJB, ... I notice that the first step of SCEA exam invloves more about design patterns so that should be okay, but when step 2 comes (design and create a web app) there might be a lot of things that is still missing from me which might hinder my progress.

If I want to ultimately be an Architech, would SCEA be a thing that's better to archieve before? or after I actually be involved in a role as an Architech? And being a SCEA, would it limit to my future with the Java world?

Thanks in advance

thank you for JavaRanch.I got a lot of help here.Thank you for the kind people in JavaRanch,they gave me so many useful information.

Hi Young,
When did you take the step 3 exam?

I had one more question, how did you manage criss crossings in the class diagrams? especially, when so many classes implements serializable interface.

Hi Jay,

My take on that is I never thought,it would be of any value addition to include the marker interfaces in the high level design.You would reach that level of detail in the low level or detail design.If you really want to show the marker interface implementation I would suggest you to do that in a separate class diagram that you discuss at a use case level.I guess that level of detail is not anticipated in the High level class diagrams.
Disclaimer:-This is my personal view on the Highlevel design :-).

Again, they are all right approaches as long as you can justify your choice. Good luck...

Abhinav I meant each for a module that interfaces with the Swing client to a significant use case.
Hi Jayaram,

I too have progressed with the same approach and have used the Business Delegate to wrap the complexity associated with the swing clients in my design .I have represented the same in the component depiction as I had 4 different significant areas to cover I had to come up with different delegates.hope this helps.

Congrats on passing your exam with very good scores.
I am planning to upload the project by this month end.
What was the design approach you would go for Business Delegates?I am planning to do my own framework. I have a web client approach and swing client approach. Do we go for multiple Business Delegates ?

Thanks guys for congratulating me!!.I am now half deep in to the assignment for the SCEA-2.I need the profissional advice here.I have used Argo uml and sun Ide for generation of UML diagrams.I was wondering if there are any new tools that are more easier to use than IBM rational Enterprise Architect.I really don't like the way patters are represented in the Rational products
Hi All,

I have sucessfuly cleared SCEA part I with 89 percentage.I was inspired by javaranch to a greater extent.I have used various resources for my preparation.Here are the references that I used:

1)Mark cade (Just use this for general overview.Dont even dare to dream that this would be enough)
2)ED Roman for EJB.(I would say understand eachline of this book and this is the bible for exam if you understand this completely you will get 100% in EJB)
3)Legacy connectivity is also a important topic because you can expect atleast 5-8 questions on it.
4)Design patterns :Understand completely why you need to use design pattern think for a while what you would have done instead of using that design pattern in this situation.Why only this design pattern why not other.
I would suggest to execute atleast one example for each design pattern to be confident at it.
4)Last but not least Security is most would get 6 questions.

I sincerely feel that you need atleast 6-8 years of expriene to actually understnd the problem presented and corelate to your expriencce.Trust me its not a easy Exam !!!
I have refered head first.I would advice you to refer the core java patterns by deepak alur.This was the book that helped me to understand design patterns in a more detail.
Hi Kevin,

I was wondering where you got these question you mentioned some source.I have answers for this questions but I really have to get Idea about the source from where you got these the reason is its interpretation dependent.I sincerely agree your explanation.
Hi Gopesh,
I am happy that you have cleared SCEA.All the best in your future endevours!!.
