Start with Mastering EJB by Ed Roman and/or Enterise Java Beans by Monson Haffel. Both are excellent books. You will find free download on serverside web site.
Hi David,
Pls see my post just above yours.
Thanks and yes that was really fast.
My class diag has about 15 classes, component diag abt 40, and abt 10 seq diag.
I guess I tried to make my component diag too detailed and lost few marks there.
My approach was not much different than ones which already posted by 95%+ club out here. So simply follow the suit with some out of the box thinking.

I had submitted the assignment on 26th May and recieved result just in 2.5 weeks. Most importantly the date of result coincided with my bday!!!
I never knew Sun also believes in giving away bday gifts

Thanks to this forum its been truely great always.
Part 1 as I can see is braodly divided into following areas:
1> Concepts of Architecture (J2EE) - including security, protocols, etc
2> UML and Design Patterns
3> EJB

Time for preparation depends upon how well versed you are with above mentioned topics. It may take anywhere from 80-160 hours.
No time limit restrictions to buy assignment for part 2 after part 1.
But between part 2 and 3 there is some restriction of couple of days or so.

Hope this helps

All the best
I dont quite recall if I was asked on UML of any of the patterns.
But this is something that one would want to learn from understanding perspective. We do ask people to draw out diagrams of patterns that they know of. It brings lot of clarity.
Use following URL for all your answers.

Books to use
1> Applying UML and Patterns - Craig Larman
2> UML Distilled - Martin Fowler

Hope this helps
Hi there,
Can someone pls let me know how to purchase or what are the steps for SCEA Part 2 and 3 in Mumbai, India.

Thats exaclt what my point is.
I'm not sure if Kathy has looked at this post already. If someone can inform her or tell me where to reach her.
Do we need a change in the specs then ?
Thanks for the reply.
I was going thru the specs to find out the rules for valid or legal ejb-jar file. But could not find any explicit rule(s) for MDBs.
So I guess we need to take it as it is.
So if I'm an Application Assembler or Deployer and I receive ejb-jar packaged only with MDBs. I'll say "according to specs these files are invalid, but I'll still go ahead and take it".

1> In Question #5 and 7.
When programming a session bean class which techniques should always be avoided to ensure bean portability across all EJB containers
A. Using class
B. Using inner classes
C. Using the final modifier for the fields
D. Passing this as the argument
When programming EJBs which declarations should be avoided to ensure bean portability across all EJB containers
A. final int x;
B. static int x;
C. final static int x;
D. final transient int x;
In any case, according to section 25.1.2 of specs, final should not be used at all.
So the correct answer must be
Q5: C
Q7: A, B, D
2> Question# 16:
Whats true about a legal ejb-jar file?
A. It must contain both a home and component interface
B. The DD is optional
C. It must contain J2EE classes used by the bean
D. The enterprise bean class is optional
The answer given is A.
(B, C and D are incorrect for sure)
Assuming we develop only MDBs and no other beans at all. In such a case, there is no home and remote component interfaces required.
Considering this, even A may be incorrect.
Pls clarify.
