Red Hat encourages all candidates for the Red Hat Certificate of Expertise in Data Virtualization Exam (EX450) to consider taking the Red Hat JBoss Data Virtualization Administration (JB450) training course.
While attending Red Hat classes can be an important part of one's preparation to take this exam, attending class does not guarantee success on the exam. Previous experience, practice, and native aptitude are also important determinants of success.
This exam is a performance-based evaluation of the skills and knowledge required to effectively use Red Hat JBoss Data Virtualization to model and create a single cohesive, federated view of multiple, complex data sources. Candidates perform a number of routine data modeling and federation tasks and are evaluated on whether they have met specific objective criteria. Performance-based testing means that candidates must perform tasks similar to what they perform on the job.
The exam consists of one section lasting 4.0 hours.
