Hi I've a question here. I had recently(in the last week of april) cleared the first part of scea. But later on due to the current market downturn and also trying to learn some new skills to cater to the current market needs, i didn't go for the part 2. Right now as iam still not yet got into any new project, iam a bit sceptical about where this market situation is heading upto. Can somebody guide me regarding whether to get serious and clear the scea right away or to concentrate on something else according to the market needs. As for me even though iam good at java i didn't get an opportunity to work on major projects at all. Will it be ok if i straight away attempt to become an architect without much development experience. what i can understand is that even though one clears scea,it may not fetch an immediate architect position unless one has a good architecture experience. can somebody please throw light on this. This is particularily in the context that iam currently on the bench(the terminolgy used for people in consulting companies without any project), and bady in need of a job and trying seriously in that regard. Iam sorry for the long letter. I would appreciate if somebody gives me a good suggestion. thanks in advance
Hello Seetarama, The certification is a test to judge your capability to do an Architect's job. But it also entrusts the responsibility of sincerely co-operating with the certification process to get the best return out of it apart from getting a certificate. The downturn in market or change in technology might change the language of implementation but if you have the ability to be a Java Architect, you will have a seamless transition to architecting other systems. So when we prepare for exams, we should consider ourself as architects and then find out why we use so many artifacts to build a system. So look at the objective of part-2 and part-3 and find out if they will help you being a better architect or not. Let us worry about building quality software for our clients who are investing so much money into it and architect cost-effective solutions.
