Note: This course used to be called Sun Certified Enterprise Architect (SCEA).

Firebrand Training's 6 day Oracle Certified Master (OCM) Java EE 6 Enterprise Architect provides students with knowledge needed to develop robust architectures for enterprise Java applications using the Java Platform, Enterprise Edition (Java EE) technology. The Enterprise Java applications developed using the architecture as a guideline can accommodate rapid change and growth.

By taking this course, participants gain an understanding of the technical context of the Java EE and relevant technologies, and strategies needed to create application blueprints that work well when implementing Java EE technologies. These strategies include effective decision making through the use of systemic qualities (such as scalability and flexibility), Java EE technology blueprints and design patterns.

Upon completion of this course, students should be able to

  1. Make good use of Java EE component technologies to solve typical problems in system architecture
  2. Derive software systems using techniques outlined in the Java EE Blueprint and solutions defined in the Java EE Patterns catalogue
  3. Address quality-of-service requirements in a cost-effective manner using engineering trade-off techniques
  4. Describe the role of the architect and the products an architect delivers
  5. List and describe typical problems associated with large-scale enterprise systems


Students who can benefit from this course are those who are responsible for the overall software architecture and design of Java EE technology-based enterprise software systems. These students would also require insight into the role of the enterprise architect and want to use Java EE technologies in n-tier enterprise systems. Existing architects can also benefit from an understanding of how to use Java EE technologies to improve quality of service in their enterprise systems.

Seven reasons why you should sit your course with Firebrand Training

  1. Two options of training. Choose between residential classroom-based, or online courses
  2. You'll be certified fast. With us, you’ll be trained in record time
  3. Our course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams**, accommodation* and meals*. No hidden extras.
  4. Pass first time or train again for free. This is our guarantee. We’re confident you’ll pass your course first time. But if not, come back within a year and only pay for accommodation, exams and incidental costs
  5. You’ll learn more. A day with a traditional training provider generally runs from 9am – 5pm, with a nice long break for lunch. With Firebrand Training you’ll get at least 12 hours/day quality learning time, with your instructor
  6. You’ll learn faster. Chances are, you’ll have a different learning style to those around you. We combine visual, auditory and tactile styles to deliver the material in a way that ensures you will learn faster and more easily
  7. You’ll be studying with the best. We’ve been named in Training Industry’s “Top 20 IT Training Companies of the Year” every year since 2010. As well as winning many more awards, we’ve trained and certified over 100,000 professionals

Day 4

Java EE 6 Enterprise Architect Certified Master Exam (1Z0-807)

Days 5-6


The assignment requires that you architect a solution for a small but plausible business system. To keep the amount of work involved to a reasonable level, the programs you create will be much more restricted in capability, and much cruder in overall presentation, than anything you would actually create for a paying customer. However, the essence of the problem will be the same. You will be graded on correctly solving the technical and performance requirements, not on the "polish" of the finished product.

Exam Track

This course prepares you for and tests you on the following exam:

Java EE 6 Enterprise Architect Certified Master Exam (Step 1 of 3) (1Z0-807)

In addition, during the course you will prepare for the following assignment:

Java Enterprise Architect Certified Master Assignment (Step 2 of 3) (1Z0-865)

This is completed outside of the course, and you will need to arrange and pay for this assignment directly with Oracle. On completion of the assignment, you will also be able to complete the following essay:
