I would like to share my experience and materials which I have used for SCEA preparation..Firstly, I am having 2 yr 10 months experience. Those who are having exp less than 4 yrs ,I would suggest them to finish these certifications (SCWCD, SCBCD & SCDJWS for J2EE 5) , though it’s not mandatory, but it helps you to gain more knowledge.

Preparation tips & links: (for 1st round interview) –Basic stuffsss …. More to add on… All d best!!!

Please check the source code of HashMap.java

*) Annotation – how to create a simple annotation (@Retention(RetentionPolicy.RUNTIME)) (more…)
