If you passed the scea and placed it on your business cards, where on the business card did you place it? On the same line as your name? Same line as your job title?
can you help me list what services are offered by an ejb container that is not offered by a web container. I know one is ejb, what are the others?

if you work at a cmmi level 5 company, can you share with us what you like and dislike about it? I work at a hack shop and have seen the pain associated with it. how is it at the other extreme?
I passed p2 & p3 with a 88, how long should i expect to wait to get my certificate, pin, etc from sun? I am in the USA.
i've interviewed with an number of companies advertising 'software engineering' and they are turned off when you ask them about their software development process. process and methodology are dirty words to them. one manager told me 'in the end code matters, not documents'. i wish them luck.
i would say out of 10 software engineering jobs advertised, 8 are for programmers and the other 2 are for guys with 10-15 years experience developing large scale mission critical systems.

A common thread I saw was "My competitors are hiring in India, thus I must also in order to survive."
My favorite quote was:
"So you're saying to someone, you have your four-year electrical engineering degree, you've worked in the industry for 15 years and you're in your late 30s with kids and you now have to go back and study nursing. Is that the answer?"

I like it but I am nervous that my employer might see my signature on it and then would take action against me.

Is it a wise career move for a software engineer who specializes in j2ee and has the java certifications to pursue a .NET opportunity? I think it might be a good move since I want to be known as a software engineer instead of a java developer. I believe a software engineer uses a language as a tool and has a skill set that is not dependent on language. Yet it is intimidating to switch knowing how much I invested in java. Is it a good move? If so, how likely is it with someone with only j2ee to get a. NET job?

i completed part 1 about 8-9 months ago with a 93%. i worked on part 2 thereafter and have about 50% of it done. however, i stopped working on it 6 months ago because i was tired of the hours of analyzing the problem without getting much done, question the value of having it (job market does not seem to care for it or even know what it is) & i really didn't want to go home after a long day of work & start working on it. i picked up a few hobbies outside of software engineering that i enjoy after work. should i forget about part 2 & part 3 of the SCEA or should i put in the effort & try to wrap it up in a month & submit whatever i have then?
Seid, you had all the right material for the exam. do you have any real work experience with j2ee?
i too prefer
slsb --> dao
instead of
slsb --> entity bean --> dao
what are the effects on performance and scaleability? would the entity bean solution have better performance and scaleability? are there any articles or whitepapers discussing the tradeoffs?
it looks like that is for jps1.1.2. i don't think bea even has instructions to get petstore 1.3 working on weblogic 7. maybe looking at the deployment descriptors for 1.1.2 will help me with 1.3
chapter 7 of Designing Enterprise Applications
with the J2EE covers deployment. lots of information there. boy did sun make this complicated!

i am in the process of deploying petstore 1.3 on wl 6.1 but these deployment descriptors are confusing. is there a document available that gives the general process of converting from sun's RI to weblogic 6.1? How about a doc that explains the deployment descriptors in plain english?
