London - Skills Matter

Free Event with Humphrey Sheil

The Sun Certified Enterprise Architect (SCEA) exam represents the culmination of Sun's certification program for the Java™ community. This session covers the newly revised SCEA certification that was released in the first quarter of calendar year 2008. In this session you will learn about the three parts of the exam and what they test, including:

    * Who is the target audience for the exam
    * Which exam rumors are true and which are false
    * Tips for exam preparation, including preparation materials
    * Tips for taking each part of the exam

Free Event: 16th Oct 2008  18:30, Skills Matter, London

We will cover how the exam has been completely rewritten to cover the Java EE 5 platform, the design decisions that went into the new exam and the rationale and motivation behind them (and how this affects candidates). Perennial exam rumors will be detailed and addressed, we'll dig through the mountain of potential revision material to single out the most relevant books, specifications and articles to focus on and we'll provide practical tips on how best to approach parts one, two and three of the exam.

If you are interested in becoming a Sun certified enterprise architect, this free session is definitely for you. If you haven't considered architect certification before, stop by anyway - you'll learn what becoming a Sun Java EE 5 architect can bring you and how effective the exam preparation is in rounding you out as a Java EE 5 architect. This event was a highlight of the JavaOne conference in May 2008.

Have yiou seen this on Kiriil's blog? Pretty funny....


Finally, Jonas Bandi points to a gem in the Sun Certified Enterprise Architect exam preparation materials from the Sun Learning Center. The question is this:

You are architecting a real-time system with high usage and high volumes of transactions. You need an MVC application with quick presentation times resembling a thin client and will have several pre-populated views that can carry across several pages. The users must be able to quickly navigate between different sections of the system. Which three technologies will you need to implement? (Choose three.)

  • A) MDB
  • B) Swing GUI controls
  • C) JSP
  • D) EJB3 Entities
  • E) Stateless Session Beans
  • F) JCE

The solution - Options C, D, E are correct. What about Option B (Swing)?

Option B is incorrect because swing components are notoriously slow.

With such friends, who needs enemies?
