Hello,

I am interested in doing an XML certification and also learn everything possible about it.

The only one I am aware of currently is XMLMaster certification path.

Has anyone given the basic and the advanced certification? Is this the correct one to prepare for?

Please let me know your thoughts.

Regards,
Bonson Mampilli

Not sure what you mean by "the correct one" -correct for which purpose?- but there is one other XML certification I'm aware of: http://www.coderanch.com/how-to/java/IBMXMLCertificationFaq

Hello Tim,

Thanks for the response. I actually meant "More known and acknowledged by Industry."

I assume that the IBM one would be more acknowledged.

So exam 142 is valid for me. Plan to start preparing for the same.

The URL sent by you contains a lot of information on the same.

Thanks,
B. Mampilli
