Hi Carl,
I was looking forward for this give-away while viewing the promotion pages.Well I have some trivial issues which some guys have already raised in the forum,but wd like to know from Pradeep.How far is a vendor-specific certification useful.If someone has not worked on Weblogic, can this software still be useful.How best can I use my study towards this certification, as a launching pad for a post of a app-server specialist in an organisation.One moew thing pradeep, what is the pricing for this software.
Thanks
Rishi

Thanks Carl for the opportunity!!!
Rishi,
How far is vendor-specifi certification useful?
>> Its not an easy question to answer and the answer may very from person to person. But yes, having certification in a product like WebLogic adds lot of value to your profile. Specially if you have experience in the domain of J2EE technologies.

If someone has not worked on Weblogic, can this software still be useful.
>> Our product will certainly be useful, if you have or don't have an experience on WebLogic. But nothing can replace the potential of hands-on practice on the product/technology. It becomes more important when its a product, like WebLogic. Thus I would HIGHLY recommend experience/practice on WebLogic before you take this prestigious exam.
How best can I use my study towards this certification, as a launching pad for a post of a app-server specialist in an organisation.
>>It depends on many factors, primarily :
a.) Your background
b.) Your experience.
Surely, you will have an edge above others on being WebLogic Certified when applying for a post of app-server related job.
One moew thing pradeep, what is the pricing for this software.
>> US$ 39.95/license. In case you are already a user of our product(s) or buying WebLogic@Whiz, in combination with others, you become eligible for attractive discounts.
I hope this helps.
Regards and best wishes
Pradeep

Just to add a bit more to Pradeep's posting, WebLogic is probably the leading J2EE app server on the market. WebSphere seems to be behind them in providing feature/functionality. We're in the process of moving our application to WebLogic and don't have many resources that can help us. It's been difficult to find people with this skillset. So, I think if you can become proficient, there's definitely a market for you. We just had a consultant in from Sun to help us with it.
Also, as Pradeep alluded to, reading books and using simulation software isn't going to help much (IMHO) unless you can apply the knowledge hands-on. WebLogic is not a walk in the park, and there are many areas you need to be concerned with. This isn't general knowledge like you might find taking a networking test or something similar where things are pretty much the same regardless of who the vendor is. WebLogic has its own security, its own clustering, session replication, etc. I would highly recommend that, should you decide to pursue this avenue, you register at the BEA developer site, download and install a trial copy, and beat it do death.
In addition to WebLogic@Whiz, I would also recommend reading "J2EE Applications and BEA WebLogic Server". It's an excellent book. Good luck!

Hi Pradeep,
yesterday I passed Websphere-158. I used your product for Websphere-488 in my preparation. There could be more questions, but it really helped in some points and the test is not easy (at least for me).
Suggestion:
I have a suggestions for your product:
After the test I copied the questions I got wrong including the explanation in a Word-file. I could read that off-screen. It was lot of stupid work copying the stuff. What about "dump-wrong-answers-with-explanation in text-file" button

regards Axel
