Hi, I'm SCJP and will be giving SCWCD this month. I've been working on SUN-One for almost an year now. So my 2 questions are: a) How easy it would be for me to prepare for this Weblogic certification exam? How many days would be enough to clear this? b) How much weight it will add to my resume? Also, I've heard lot about Whizlab exam simulator for java certifications. Could some one suggest how useful it is for this particular certification? Thanks Deep
Yes, take a look at the link. In addition, in terms of getting basic understanding, you would need at least a month or more (depending on how fast you pick up). Then you will need to know WebLogic across the board. That will take more time. Playing with the application server samples is a good start. You have worked with Sun One, so you understand the basic deployment descriptors like web.xml, the war and ear deployment and basic J2EE development with EJB, JSP, web sevices, etc. WebLogic has its own features in addition to J2EE, its tools and utlities, clustering, administration, etc. Since you are new to WebLogic, plan on at least 2 months for preparation time. Using the simulator with other online resources, can help you prepare better. You can use the whizlabs simulator to understand the kind of likely questions and validate your skills at various points. The feedback will also help you focus on areas of concern and make the process faster.
