Regards,

I've scheduled my exam for June 4th taking advantage of Sun's extension of the deadline. I'll be taking it at the Insurgentes Sur Prometric center.

I got Richard's book through a well known online book store (it took only one day) and I'm using it as my base. I found it very easy to read even thouhg it goes into a great level of detail on some topics.

Just curious if anyone else is getting certified in the biggest city in the world.

Cheers.

Luis,
I am originally from MX city but have been in the states for well over 20yrs. Anyways I am taking the certification but not in MX. I was just curious how is the Java community in MX this days? Is there a demand for Java programmers?

Thanks

Rama,

I believe that there's a considerable demand of Java professionals in Mexico these days but not enough people. I don't believe there are many certified Java folks around here.

There's quite a few large projects going on at the government side. Some software firms are recruiting tons of people but they are going through a mightmare finding the right people.

Anyhow, good luck in your SCDJWS certification!

Luis,
Thanks for the reply. I was not able to take the Web Services certification. The current project that I am working on has turn a bit sour and we have been here at D.C for the last two weeks trying to get it back on the right track. If you don�t mind me asking can you tell me some of the names of the software firms that are currently hiring over there? You can email me at rama@satx.rr.com. If you can't I can understand.

Thanks

Rama Ituarte
