Hi All,
I am a senior java developer and wanted to enhance my carrer by doing certifications.Can anybody advice me on to follow which path to have a good future in terms of good salary and technology.

I am new to certifications, and wanted to start doing that.Before starting i want a general advice on what path to choose and which is more valuable and having more demand.

Flow 1 : SJCP -- SCWCD -- SCBCD -- SCEA

Flow 2 : ICED ( Exam 287, 484,486)

Flow 2 should be: SCJP -- ICED ( Exam 287, 484,486)

Personally, I think both flows are equally important. Sun's certification focus on the common knowledge of Java, which works on all platforms, IDEs and ASs. However, ICED (or other certs developed by vendors) focus on how the specific product, like WAS and WSAD, work together with Java.

Thus, I recommend you to acquire for both flows.
