I'm sorry if this has been asked and answered but I'm leading a study group and an VERY interested in this. I didn't see it on Amazon (my preferred vendor). Do you know when it will be available on Amazon?

Thanks,
David

Should we consider the I7 site the official word? I believe so but am hesitant to tell others of the results until getting the email results. What do others think?
I'm kind of surprised but according to the I7 site it appears I passed!

Hi Rohan,

You might be interested in my study notes for Part I.

Hope this helps!



This is a great resource! I'm doubtful that you would go back and update it now that you passed Part I but have you thought about updating the study notes for the new SCEA 5 exam?

I got another email today in response to my response about the Urgent message. They gave me another alternate Gmail address to use and after resubmitting (3rd submission) I got an automated response from the Gmail address. Seems to be some issues with the prometric address.

David
Same problem here. I resent it today. It's disturbing thinking I spent all this time on the project and it MIGHT not be received in time.

David
FYI, I called in and registered and was told that you NEED to register by phone because it's a free exam. I don't know how true that is.

David
Great, thanks! I searched Safari earlier today and didn't see it, thanks for the link.

Have you thought about offering this as an eBook (i.e. PDF, O'Reilly Safari, Sony Reader, etc.)?

Thanks,

What about a book recommendation if I want to do my part II against J2EE 5? Is there anything out there yet?
Great, thanks for the feedback! So, I'd like to focus on using J2EE 5 for Parts II and III of the exam. Can you all recommend a good J2EE 5 book or two that I can use to prepare for this part of the exam?
Thanks for the responses though I'm still a little unclear as to whether Part I of the exam indeed has J2EE 1.2 specific questions on it. That is, if I'm well versed in J2EE 5 could I answer some questions wrong because I'm not thinking in "J2EE 1.2"?

Thanks,
David
I've been involved in a study group for SCEA for over a year and we've been waiting for the J2EE 5 update to the exam since it's apparently currently based on J2EE 1.2/EJB 1.1 (from a Sun rep I asked last year). I was told by the same Sun rep last year that it would be out by 1/2007. I sent a follow-up a couple of weeks ago and asked what was going on with the update and got the following response:

Unfortunately, we do not have specific information as to if or when an updated certification path may be released. We regret to learn that you received inaccurate information from one of our representatives.

The Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for J2EE Technology (CX-310-051) exam is not currently tied to a specific version of Java Platform Enterprise Edition. The only current certification that Sun offers which is specific to J2EE 5.0 is the Sun Certified Business Component Developer for the Java Platform, Enterprise Edition 5 (CX-310-091).



This is completely contradictory to the information I received from Sun Ed last year. This makes no sense to me that they're not updating the exam and they claim the exam is not tied to a specific version of J2EE. Aren't there specific EJB questions on the exam that are dependent on J2EE version? Any insights out there?

Thanks,
David

Try checking the http connector configuration in the server.xml. Check to see if the "server" attribute is specified.



Thanks for the tip. My Connector configuration looks like:



I don't see a server attribute in this configuration file.

Interesting. It doesn't seem like it should matter but I'm using Tomcat 5.5.17.

From the following site:

http://www.apl.jhu.edu/~hall/java/Servlet-Tutorial/Servlet-Tutorial-Response-Headers.html

I read the following:

"Server => What server am I? Servlets don't usually set this; the Web server itself does."
