That's cool. But it only discusses GOF patterns. I am particularly interested in J2EE patterns in JSF? Any ideas?

How will you divide 100 between following factors which derive: job satisfaction/motivation/retention/next step in career(change).
Salary,Company Culture,Your Role,Technologies, Chance of Growth, Brand Name of Company.
I am thinking on following.
Salary - 50%
Culture - 25%
Role - 15%
Technologies,Growth,Brand Name combine - 10%
p.s. I am not seeking opinions from HR consultants.

Many people undertake the SCEA certification in order to keep their skills updated or to sharpen their current skills. Just like you cannot learn to drive a car by reading all the car manuals on the internet, you cannot become an architect by just reading about it.
At least in my company, the architect role is only about 50 percent technical in nature. The remaining 50 percent involves a variety of activities that involve an intimate understanding of the business since architecture always has a business context to it. Also an architect needs to be able to conduct a conversation using the business language and not just technical speak. Unless executives see the business value of anything that is proposed by the architect, chances are they would consider any meeting with the architect a waste of time.
My point is that there is more to being an architect than one could ever get from reading material from a forum or even the entire internet. Also remember that when you are making a presentation in front of your company's executives, you cannot go back to read material from a forum to answer a question that might be posed.
SCEA being an assignment based exam will force the candidate to go through the process of creating a series of architectural artifacts. In the process of creating these architectural artifacts, you will learn a lot of new things that you probably would not have learnt on your own since they may not be required for your day job.
In the end, remember that it is the journey to being a certified architect that matters rather than the destination.
Just my thoughts....
