Hi,

I intend to develop my career towards the direction of business integration.
Right now I've already got the certifications in my signature, as I have worked in this area for 4 years. I haven't decided whether I'll go for SCD for Web Services, or SCEA.

But I feel, based on market demand, that I need to know something that are linked with certain application server products, e.g. WebSphere, WebLogic or Oracle AS, etc.

Is there any certification from IBM, BEA or Oracle that you guys recommend?
I don't intend to get a system administrator in Websphere thing, because I'm not interested in Sys Admin (at least for now).

Thanks for valuable input.

Hello Warren,

For business integration field, i would recommend the IBM - Websphere certifications: Websphere Certs, go down to the Business Integration area.
Actually i am studying for the IBM SOA certs, i had done the Websphere admin certs,and i also not interested in the Sys Admin field.

Regards,

I found IBM certificates are closed linked to their products, even with version number.
In the Websphere business integration section, I found the following is closest to the area I want to pursue.

1. IBM Certified Business Process Analyst - WebSphere Business Modeler Advanced V6.0.2
2. IBM Certified Solution Developer - WebSphere Integration Developer V6.0.1
3. IBM Certified Solution Developer - WebSphere Integration Developer V6.0.2

From their objectives, I found the first one is about the Websphere monitor.
The 2nd one is the one closest to what I know, about the J2EE modules and component development and testing. And the 3rd is much more advanced, although its name is so similar to the 2nd one, more on business process, abstract design and analysis.

What are your views on these 3 certs?

Hmm. I did a little research and come out with the following that I will be interested in:

1. IBM certified SOA solution designer. Test 665.
2. IBM certified Solution Developer - Websphere Integration Developer V6.0.1. Test 094
3. <same as 2> but V 6.0.2. test 991.

V6.0.2 is much more business-related and more advanced than V6.0.1.

Does anyone here have any of these tests? SOA is in demand now. All of these actually have something to do with SOA.
