Senthil,

I got this resolved. Actually prometric site has all these exams under Lotus and not IBM. Anyways, went again to the test centre and gave the exam. Cleared it successfully (84%). Are you planning for 825 by any chance?

Cheers,
Congrats! BTW, Did you give the test in India. I tried giving it today and I was told it is not in their database. Also, prometric website does not show Exam 829 at all(It shows only 399 only)

Cheers,
Narasimhan
Hi Amit/Cameron,

I'm interested in giving 829 exam and I'm going through portlet spec and IBM red book. Are there any other materials available? IBM site says that red book is still pending for Portal V6

Cameron,

I went through your site and found it really helpful!

Thanks

If you want to pass user related information stored in a directory server, you can user USER_INFO feature of JSR portlets. If you want to retrieve just the user id, use portletRequest.getUserPrincipal()

Thanks

Hi Everyone,

I recently completed my SCBCD Exam.(I have already completed SCJP,SCWCD). Shall I go ahead and take SCEA or go for SCJWS.

Also, if you recommend SCEA, how long does it take to prepare?

Thanks Much,
Narasimhan
Hi Everyone,

I cleared SCBCD today with 85%. Lost it in EJB-QL. Gave my exam with 20 days of preparation so feeling relieved. Thanks much to Kathy and Bert for their wonderful book and Fredric for his notes.

Hi All,

Even I'm preparing for SCBCD and using Headfirst for the same (I cleared my SCWCD pretty recently). Planning to give my exam around April last week. Fredric, Your site is cool. And personally, I feel SCBCD is much easier compared to SCWCD. Good Luck to 'SCBCD gang' and looking forward for enlightening discussions.

Cheers,
Just include appserv-rt.jar in your classpath while running the code( I tried it on 1.4) and it works fine. This is because SerialContextInitFactory class is present inside appserv-rt.jar. You can find the file in SUN_INSTL/appserver/domains/domain1/lib

Cheers,
Hi There,

Well I didn't tell u that I ran my code in 1.4. All you need to do is compile the code as it is and execute the following comand

java -cp .;<SUN_HOME>/AppServer/lib/appserv-rt.jar AdviceHome

where <SUN_HOME> refers to your installation directory. Then the code works fine. If you find any issues just paste the logs.

Cheers,
Use the code given in HeadFirst but have asppserv-rt.jar in ur classpath. That's all. It works fine. Reason is SerialInitialContext Factory is located in appserv-rt.jar.

Cheers,
Hi there,

Thanks. Well regarding Design patterns, reading HeaqdFirst is more than enough. Plus if you have worked on J2EE before it shouldn't be much of a problem. I found jsp technology model and EL to be little tricky.

Cheers,
Even I faced a similar problem. I just added appserv-rt.jar to my classpath while running the application and everything went on fine.

Thanks. Well even I'm thinking of going for ejb 2.1 rather than wait till 3.0. Looks like a better option. BTW, Are you planning to user Heardfirst for this as well?

Thanks,
Narasimhan
I have been a silent observer of this form for quite a while. Today I gave my SCWCD exam and ended up with 95%. Thanks to Kathy and Bert for their wonderful book. I read it twice, went through API's and gave mocks specified in SCWCD section. The final exam was much easier than mocks.

Should I go for SCBCD now or wait for the new exam? Please let me know your thoughts.

Thanks,
Narasimhan
Thanks for the guidance .Even I'm looking at a timeframe of 2-3 months.Planning to give it around Feb End - Mar Beginning.
