I am starting preparation for 488. I need help to find What is the correct sequence of preparation ?
1. First prepare for 483 or Learn J2EE using J2EE SDK.
2. Begin directly with WebSphere and learn J2EE use with it.
Any input for where to begin J2EE?

Dear Asahni,
It seems you are not following the member name policy of this place. Please register with you first name and second name separated by space; it helps others address you better.
Regarding going for Test 488, definitely you must spend sufficient time understanding app server concepts thoroughtly; don't jump into any app server. This involves understing J2EE API which you can master following lot of books and very good tutorials available at sun's site. But make sure you don't waste time migrating from one book to another and so on.
Your idea of appearing for Test 483 before is great. This will help you in two ways : getting another important certification and give you confidence of J2EE tech's.
Regarding some valuable resources available on net for WebSphere, you can visit our FAQ and Resources pages for both WebLogic and WebSphere following the links below:

Hope this helps.
Best of luck

Pardeeep thanks for info. I changed my name to make addressing proper.
Can you elaborate on J2EE learning path as it involves learning curve for some of underlying technologies like RMI,JMS and SAX etc.
If you can give sequence of learning from ground up it will be great help for all pursuing this path.

Dear Arun,
Good that you followed the convention.
Regarding the sequence for J2EE: It lot depends on your present experience; like how much understaing do you have of 3 Tier Architecture/N-tier Architecture, Distributed computing. Also I assume you are comfortable with core Java.
So the first thing to learn will be the understanding of J2EE Architecture, its functionality and usefulness. Get the big picture first before you go in details.
Then you can go for sepcific APIs like EJBs, JSPs/Servelts, JDBC, JNDI, JMS etc. Try to write as much code as possible; try on Sun's J2EE if you have no knowledge of tools like WebSphere, WebLogic, JBoss. At sun's site there are lot of good tutorials with excerices describing real life problems; it will give you better picture of the technology.
Once you are comfortable with all this, you can pick up app server like WebSphere/WebLogic depending upon your project requirements or future project expectations. Having basics clear, picking up an app server will not be too difficult; ofcourse the complext features of any tool will take time to master.
Hope this will be of some help and starting point for you.
Best wishes
