Hi Patel,

I think your friend's advice is not correct that not using JSF will get you fail. JSP/Servlet are also part of J2EE. In fact, JSP/Servlet can give more control on the solution being designed.
Go for it without fear. Don't change your design.
First of all I would want know if the 1Z0-807 exam has any required prerequisites; in detail,
I must take the 1Z0-900 before 1Z0-807?

There is no prerequisite. You need not to take 1Z0-900. Please read https://coderanch.com/wiki/659724/OCMJEA-FAQ for details.

In second place I would want know how does it work the 1Z0-866 exam; I read in this forum
that it has 8 question to respond in 2 hours. Do you assure me this exam can be taken only
in a testing centre (as 1Z0-807)?

Yes, you need to write assignment in a testing center.

Thanks,
Ankit
Hi Friends,

I have read in many threads that some candidates uploaded PART-2 Assignment(1Z0-865) and appear for PART-3 Essay(1Z0-866) on the same day which means they might have bought the PART-3 along with PART-2.
Some people say that PART-3 can only be bought after PART-2 submission.

Please share your experience.
Hi Leonardo,

Wow! many congratulations. Could you please write some details(your assignment, the strategy opted etc.) about your preparation for Part 2 & 3. I will soon start my preparation and will be useful.

Angular is a front end technology. I don't see why you'd need to specify it at all.



Hi Jeanne,
Many thanks for your answer. Yes, you are right we should build solution around J2EE technologies. I will stick to it.

I have no clue, but I remember someone asked a similar question here a few days ago...

Check out Jeanne's post here:

Hope this helps.



Thanks for your reply Stephan. With the information available, I will go with current version.
Hi Friends,

In OCMJEA part 2, is it recommended to use only J2EE technologies like JSP, servlet or JSF or can we use Spring, angular js as well. Any suggestion.


Thanks,
Ankit
Hi Friends,
I had passed OCMJEA part 1 long back but could not take part 2 & 3 due to various reasons. Now I want to complete remaining parts so that I can get the certificate.
Please recommend whether I should go ahead or wait for next version. I don't have any update on the next version. Please advise.

Thanks,
Ankit

It took me 3 months to complete the preparation. I was not regular though. I think preparation varies from person to person.
Yes, you can attempt this exam anytime once you are ready this year.

Hi Friends,

I wrote 1Z0-808 yesterday and passed it with 88 percent. Considering my preparation, I am happy with this score.
I would like to share my experience with this exam to help the exam aspirants.

First and foremost, I would like to thank coderanchers to help out directly / indirectly prepare for this exam. Believe me, this is great thing which you/we guys are doing to help each others.

BOOKS
OCA 8 Sybex Guide by Jeanne and Scott

This book was recommended by many successfully folks who have passed this exam so I refered this book only. This book is very easy to read and it explains the concepts point to point. I would also recommends it highly.

MOCK EXAMS
I would give 60 percent weightage to mock tests and 40 to book above. During my preparation, I spent more time to write mock tests and understand the kind of questions being asked and if I am uncomfortable then refer the book again. By doing this, I end up referring the concepts from the book many times which really helps to get good hold of the concept. Below are the mocks I attempted -
1. 3 mocks from the book OCA 8 Sybex Guide by Jeanne and Scott
2. Whizlabs mock test for 1Z0-808
3. Enthuware tests for 1Z0-808

My recommendation will be to go mocks from the book many times and get the understanding clear of each and every question. The actual exam is very similar to the questions asked in this book.
Whizlabs is also good but the site was down many times during my preparation so I was very unhappy about it and also they have few questions from 1Z0-809 which surprised me. Go for it if you have time to want to write more mocks as their quality is good.
Enthuware is highly recommended.  As suggested by many folks, I went for it and it didn't let me down. My scores in the tests were-
Foundation Test - 77
Test 1 - 77
Test 2 - 84
Test 3 - 73
Test 4 - 84
Test 5 - 65
Test 6 - 78
Last Test - 75
Average Enthuware score - 77
1Z0-808 EXAM - 88

So going by the trend, you can expect 10 to 12 percent higher marks in real exam than your overall Enthuware average score.
I more thing which I want to highlight is that the exam had 80 questions not 77 which oracle mentioned so make a note of it.

Good luck for your preparation  

Thanks,
Ankit

Hi Igor,


My exam cloud practice test - Recommended
Pros – Enough questions to practice
Cons – Many questions were answered incorrectly and some answers were not accepted after submitting the test. Quality is not that good. I was logged out many times for no reason.
Whizlabs – Highly recommended
Pros – Very good quality and last test was similar to the actual test
Cons – Couldn’t start custom test due to some technical reason. Only 5 mock tests.

Hi Raghavendra,

If you are still preparing then go for Whizlabs which is better than EPractice Labs.

Thanks

Hi All,

It gives me immense pleasure to inform you that today I appeared for exam 1Z0-807 and passed with 73%. This was my first attempt.
It is good start and will focus on remaining 2 exams whose preparation I will start in some time.

Vision
I want to move into JEE technical architecture stream so decided to take this exam which will not only give enough knowledge but also make your chances better after you have this certification(OCMJEA 6).

Professional Background
I have 11 years of experience with 1.5 year as Architect and currently not in this role.

Preparation – Duration 5 months
I started my preparation by giving free exam from Whizlabs and passed it which gave me confidence to go for the exam.
I went through the code ranch forum to get help in preparation and found some good pointers like the one from Mithun Ms. https://coderanch.com/t/665594/certification/Completed-OCMJEA. Thanks Mithun.
I used below books
OCM Java EE 6 Enterprise Architect Exam Guide by Paul R. Allen
         Pros – Very good book for beginners to get the feel about the syllabus of the exam. It comes with 120 mock questions. Covered anti patterns.
    Cons – it doesn’t cover all topic in details, EJB part is too short.

Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for J2EE Technology Study Guide by Mark Cade and Simon Roberts
    Pros – Mock question, Security concepts

Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for J2EE Technology Study Guide by Mark Cade and Humphrey Sheil (Second Edition)
            Pros – Architecture part, questions

Design_Patterns_For_Dummies – I was not comfortable with design patterns so decided to start with this book and then learnt by browsing through google and writing some small program for some of the pattern.

Core J2EE Design Patterns Best Practices and Design Strategies by Deepak Alur, John Crupi, Dan Malks and http://www.corej2eepatterns.com/index.htm


Others
JEE 6 tutorial - http://docs.oracle.com/javaee/6/tutorial/doc/p1.html
EJB 3.1 Specification – First 4 chapters
Servlet specification


Mock Tests
Practice guide by Amritendu De – Recommended
Pros – Quality of questions are good
Cons – Based on OCMJEA 5 syllabus
My exam cloud practice test - Recommended
Pros – Enough questions to practice
Cons – Many questions were answered incorrectly and some answers were not accepted after submitting the test. Quality is not that good. I was logged out many times for no reason.
Whizlabs – Highly recommended
Pros – Very good quality and last test was similar to the actual test
Cons – Couldn’t start custom test due to some technical reason. Only 5 mock tests.

About the exam
The exam was moderate. There were many multiple select questions whose answers were very close. Practice is the key of this exam with good understanding of each technology, components used in J2EE.
I would suggest that candidate should have good development/design experience before attempting this exam as the experience plays an important role.

Tips of the exam
Don't search and think too much about this exam. Just start preparation and get passed.

Thanks to all code ranchers who indirectly helped me pass this exam. I would need your help to pass other 2 exams as well. I am now searching for good books and pointers to start with.


Thanks,

I have one question on the discount. Will voucher have to be used before 31st Dec after the purchase or can be used next year as well? i.e. can we plan exam next year after buying voucher this year?
Good Question and Great answer by Jeanne.

We can also try to understand using example of any application which is going to be upgraded

Manageability
1. What is the cost of the upgrade 100 $
2. What is the complexity Medium
3. Is it reliableYes
Another examples:
4. Is application compatible with CRM system?  Yes
5. Can we use cloud services?  Yes



Maintainability : How difficult it will be to maintain the application/code/system? The factor affecting maintainability can be -
1. Did we use logging mechanism?
2. What language is being used?
3. Are we using continuous integration tool like Jenkins or teamcity?
4. Is automated testing being used?
5. Can application be started automatically if the machine is rebooted/restarted?
6. Can we add new functionality easily?

The answers of above questions explain how maintainability of the application is?
