Passed Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for JEE 5 !!

Sun had announced a Beta exam for SCEA for Java EE 5 last year, around Nov/Dec 2007. I had written the exam, submitted the assignment and had totally forgotten about it. I got a pleasant surprise today, when I reached home and saw the package from Sun and that I had passed the Sun Enterprise Architect certification !! I had started thinking about this exam,in 1999, right after I completed the programmers certification 😉

Part 1 and 3 are pretty easy, and any person who has been involved with Java EE for 3-4 years, can easily crack it. Lots of Java/JEE design pattern questions, Enterprise architecture stuff like non-functional requirements/security. Don’t crack your head by reading on API and other kinds of low level stuff, which you encounter in Sun programmer or developer exams. The assignment, takes some time. You need to deliver UML based artifacts for a sample scenario. I had to give a Sequence diagram, Class diagram, deployment diagram, package diagram and a write-up on the design/architecture choices used. I strongly recommend, doing the part 3 essay exam right after you complete part 2 assignment. Part 3 is almost, completely based on the assignment. Good luck !!
