I have been working with Java (JSP + Servelt) for over two years now. I am all set to get my SCEA certification. The main goal of getting SCEA certification was to get an EJB related job. People suggested that I should also go for websphere app server or BEA app server certification. I don't have much industry experience to decide one way or another. Any suggestions!! 1) should i go for extra certification? 2) If yes then which one. I guess both IBM and BEA have tons of them. Thanks. - Walk
If you are going for a job with EJB, I reckon the new Sun Certified Business Component Developer exam would be very useful. Having taken the beta exam, I can say it is a pretty thorough test. Either Weblogic or Websphere would be useful, but it depends whether the company actually uses them. The SCEA is useful to demonstrate knowledge of architectural system design, but it doesn't test EJB knowledge in detail.
I have just passed SCEA part1 but the part2 assignment is rather diffcult without some extensive experience and knowledge of OO systems analysis and desigun using UML . I have downloaded the assignment and preparing to do it now, SCEA doesnt including and programming or coding for J2EE but SCBCD does however it is a knowledge test no assignment involved
