  • 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

3.0 out of 5 stars a good book plan ur exam 10 Nov 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Well written compact book, but the content is very limited, so only this book cannot make you pass. This book can be used as a roadmap only when you are preparing for SCEA exams.

3.0 out of 5 stars short focused guide to study 17 July 2010
By Jeanne Boyarsky - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars SCEA study guide Review 18 July 2010
By SCEA-TRY - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Small and concise 17 Mar 2011
By John Matlock - Published on Amazon.com
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.

The content is too superficial, I was expecting a reading with more information. The price is not compatible with the content.
