Hi All,

I've quite a stupid question. It would be highly appreciated if some vetrans might respond.
I've just cleared SCJP. Wanted to know what after that. I know most of the ppl would simply suggest for one of the Developer certtifications, but can someone please give me more insight on this dilemma on mine, why not SCEA. As one can directly do SCEA, but what is it actually required for SCEA.
So can someone please tell me the positive and negative points of direcly doing SCEA and if one can do directly...then is there something which a beginner can use.

Yes you can appear for SCEA, infact you could have appeared for SCEA even before SCJP. According to Sun, and which is correct, the audience for SCEA (Architects) is different than SCJP/D/WCD/BCD/MAD (Developers).

As a developer you would design/implement somebody elses architecture.
If you have acted as a developer(either thru certification/ in real proj life) it would be easy for you to understand him as an architect; also:
at what level(n how much) detail would be useful for developer to realise the project.
Without being a developer i think its hard to visualise the implementation problems and scinarios.
It can also help in developing REALISITIC and complete design level architecures.

Hope that give some idea.
