I have done OCA 10g DBA and also many java certifications.I found preparing for java easier than oracle certification.

I have done both 2 years ago. I feel that Oracle is more difficult.

The Oracle certification is much more difficult.

Java has a pretty huge support communitiy, and the exams test you on things you work with fairly regularly. I find the db certifications, db2 and oracle, tend to pull out features that are rarely used, and rarely seen in everyday administration.

Cheers!

Hi,

Can anyone suggest me which one is more valuable. java certification or oracle certification. I am in bit confusion to choose. I have done SCJP alone and working under java/j2ee for the past 2 years.

Thanks in advance.

To be certified as an Oracle DBA now is simpler (10g): 2 exams an 1 course, before that (9i) needed 4 exams and 1 course.

I found the first exam not so hard, but study for the second is harderm and went from 70 questions to 120.

I hope to had a good score on my second exam it's appointed next friday. I will tell you my score.

If all goes rigth next year will try my java certs.

Actually, Java and Oracle focus on different areas. Java certs are basically developer certificate, while Oracle certs are basically administrator certificate.

Depends on your job nature, and target career path, you can choose either or both.
