Friends,
I have little prior exposure in the area of J2EE tech's like XML, EJB etc. I have no project assigned and no guarantee of any kind of work and tech i will be getting in the future.
I would like to go for either of the following certifications:
a.) App Server certification like Weblogic/Websphere/iPlanet
b.) IBM XML Certification
I would like to req the experienced ppl out here to advice me the path to take.
Thanks
sonal

XML certification and SCJP2 are good begining point. They will lay the foundation for the AppServer certificationas. Appserver certification needs knowledge of many J2EE technology areas.
Hope it helps,

Hi,
I move more towards SCWCD exam, simply because the forum is more active (o.k. in part its my fault, cause I am a member, its a time problem).
I will keep on learning XML, too. Think that both areas are important. It seems that companys rate SCWCD higher (in my company they do). Doubt a little if that is realistic. A guy from a WebSphere focussed consulting told me the astonishing fact that they simply don't use browser as client in their applications. They think that swing-clients are better. So in their applications there are no Servlets, JSPs. They only use the middleware stuff. For him the Web in WebSphere is marketing hype
IBM takes UML certification very serious for their WebSphere Certification and I think with a good reason. The Larman book and Fowlers UML distilled + Refactoring were (and are - I am not that fast ) very important for my way of thinking in my job.
So I will do the 3 things without worrying to much to finish exams fast.

Axel
