I have passed my SCJP on Monday and I find myself with a little bit of time on my hands (could be a lot, or not doesn't really matter). So I would like to know which certification I should go for next. Which one is most valuable on the market. I have to say that I do enjoy server side coding more then presentation, so I'm leaning more towards Sun Certified Enterprise Architect - Part I, but do I have to be SCJD first?? I would take the SCWCD last as I don't really enjoy JSP's coding that much :roll: I don't have to like everything do I?? So if anyone as any thoughts on what they think the next logical move should be, I would really appreciate it.
Thanks in advance

Louis

Just my thoughts :
Congratulations for the SCJP
If you like server side programming, and already preparing for SCEA, then you can do away with SCJD
SCEA seems more expensive and employers may see it valuable to candidates with 4+ years experience in Java. Go for SCWCD or SCBCD, which seems to add more value at relatively lower cost / effort.
Others may have a different view
Thanks
