Read a free excerpt from Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for Java EE Study Guide

Becoming a Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for Java EE requires an advanced understanding of all aspects of the Java EE platform, from JSF and JSP to EJBs and POJOs. It also requires a demonstrated ability to combine these different components and patterns into a thoughtfully designed system that addresses a specific problem. Passing the certification exam—which includes 64 multiple choice questions, a systems design challenge and a written assessment of that system, can be difficult even for experienced architects.

Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for Java EE Study Guide by Mark Cade and Humphrey Sheil is intended to help examinees prepare for the exam. Each author is a developer and assessor for the exam, and the book maintains an exam focus throughout: All terms are defined based on how they are used on the test, and every chapter is divided into a prerequisite review, a discussion section, and sample questions with explanations of the correct answer. The final chapters of the book give instruction on how to approach the design portion of the exam.

It's important to note that this book is not designed to teach the reader how to become a enterprise architect. The authors expect that a reader has extensive experience with systems design and object-oriented programming and wants to achieve Sun certification. While the focus is on the exam, however, the straightforward review the book provides about the Java EE stack makes it a slim and handy reference for any enterprise architect who works frequently with these technologies.
