Congrats on the SCJP - I passed it just last week. The stuff I've read recommends SCJD, then SCEA. Have not read too much about the SCWCD. I'm going with the recommendations, and have downloaded the SCJD assignment.
So many certifications, so little time... such a tough job market.

Hi Suresh,
SCWCD is an objective type question exam which tests your skills on servlet and JSP. SCD is an asssignment work where you make your hands dirty in to real development with RMI stuff. SCJEA is something a long ride with 3 levels which also includes assignment which teach lot of design. SCJEA is more with attitude rather than saying it as an exam.
So its up to you to decide.
ok then.
best of luck....

I think it would depend on what you want to do (develop or design) and what you want to learn.
I passed SCJP2 last July and I'm not particularly interested in SCJD (just yet) because I want to understand more about how to design a good solution, not just implement another's design - even if I get to make the detailed design decisions myself.
BTW, there is at least one of the SCJP study books that suggested doing the Architect exams before the Developer exams so you'd have more overall knowledge when you sit down to write the code for the Developer's exam.
