From the Back Cover

Definitive, Comprehensive SCEA Exam Prep-Straight from Sun's Exam Developers!

 

This book delivers complete, focused review for Sun's new Sun Certified Enterprise Architect (SCEA) for Java EE certification exam-straight from two of the exam's creators! SCEA lead developer/assessor Mark Cade and SCEA lead developer/assessor Humphrey Sheil offer powerful insights, real-world architectural case studies, and challenging sample questions that systematically prepare you for the actual exam. For every question, the authors show why the right answers are right-and why the other answers are wrong. Cade and Sheil cover every SCEA exam topic, skill, and technique, including:

  • Understanding system architecture and its goals
  • Decomposing larger systems into components organized by tiers or layers
  • Addressing requirements for scalability, maintainability, reliability, availability, extensibility, performance, and security
  • Building effective web (presentation) tiers, and analyzing tradeoffs associated with using web frameworks
  • Leveraging EJB 3's enhancements for business tier development
  • Covering new enhancements in the JEE 5 platform
  • Choosing and architecting the best integration and messaging components for your system
  • Using the Java security model to enforce confidentiality, integrity, authorization, authentication, and non-repudiation
  • Using the most powerful and useful Java EE architecture patterns
  • Documenting Java EE architectures through visual models and narratives

The authors also present detailed guidance for handling every element of the SCEA exam-including your development and defense of a complete real-world architectural solution.

Customer Reviews

I've read the first edition, and the second edition is pretty better.
Paulo Marcio Brandi Rezende
This doesn't have every detail of the topic but will definitely guide you for the exam and cover all the topics required for exam.
SCEA-TRY
I was very happy with all chapters except one's at the end of book describing content of 2nd part of exam.

I read the Cade & Shiel study guide in preparation for the SCEA 5 exam. The book is short; only 189 pages; but contains a lot of info. What struck me was how little of the content was obscure. It serves as a good plan for studying/reviewing. I used it for reviewing since the content wasn't new. Most of the book covers the part 1 objectives along with sample multiple choice questions. The rest is for parts 2 and 3. I liked the notes about what differs in practice and the answer explanations about the exam creators think.

I didn't like the sample questions format. It was way too easy to see the correct answer while looking at the question making it difficult to see where you stand. It would have been nice to have them on a different page or in an appendix. Also, one of the answers was wrong. This is obvious from reading the answer explanation of course. I also felt the "background reading" sections were too thorough. It says the successful candidate must read the EJB spec. This is malarkey. The successful candidate must have a high level view of EJB rather than know every detail of the spec.

When I read the book, I thought the questions were too easy. After taking the exam, I can say they were spot on in difficulty. Overall, I do recommend the book. It served its purpose well - to be a concise guide to getting ready for the exam.

This is a very good guide for the SCEA 5.0 preparation. This doesn't have every detail of the topic but will definitely guide you for the exam and cover all the topics required for exam. After I attended SCEA exam step-1, this is my opinion about this book. if you are a person with 7+ yrs of experience in developing/designing J2EE applications buy this book, use it as guidance and refer to other materials for detail study. You should be able to clear the exam step-1 with one month of sincere preparation putting 3hrs on each day. In addition you can take the practice exam offered by SUN.

Format: Paperback
This is pretty much the Bible of the SCEA (now OCMJEA since Oracle bought Sun) Examination. It is a fairly small book when compared with most computer books. That's because it is strictly on the exam and does not go deeply into the background or theory. That's fair because the book and indeed the exam itself presumes that you have a few years of experience actually working in this area. It concentrates on the exam, what the exam is looking for, and the intent of the people giving it. You should be able to read the book fairly quickly with a bunch of 'Yup, I see what they are looking for here' thoughts.

Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for Java EE Study Guide helps a lot when preparing to Oracle Java Architect certification. It is truly a study guide, and lacks all basics technologies discussed. Compact form of book serves well when reader has already lot of experience, but is otherwise certainly a disappointment. I was very happy with all chapters except one's at the end of book describing content of 2nd part of exam. They did good work on laying down structure of 2nd part, but were somehow confusing to me and I needed to use Distilled UML from Fowler et al. to accompany them. All at all: I recommend you to read this book to get focused on test and use some other book, for example Beginning Java EE 6 with GlassFish 3 (Expert's Voice in Java Technology), to fill your gaps in technologies of J2EE stack.

The book arrived in time. Honestly speaking, I was expecting it to be a very thick book but I was surprised to find it very brief. It is not a very comprehensive book, yet it seems to cover everything that is on exam. I guess, I will also have to do a lot of reading apart from this book. As this book is from examiners, so I expect it will prove to be very useful to give an overview of the exam.

I like this guide for OCMJEA. This was my primary guide for preparing for the exam. As the title of the book says, it is just a guide. For detailed study on various topics, you will need to refer to other text books as I and most others must have done. Also, the book does not cover all topics of the exam though it covers the major portion. So I gave it a 4 star rating.

The book is a great reference for the certification exam. However, you need to have experience or the book will be insufficient. If you lack at least 3-5 years of real JEE projects attempt to pass the exam will be a real challenge.

This is very useful for the OCMJEA process, especially the example app outlined in the book. It should not receive five stars, because there is a newer such guide, which is better for the very latest version of the exam, however. If you get this, be aware there is information specific to pre-Java EE 5 implementations.
