I am not part of sun certification commetee so I was wondering what is the scope of SCEA. my opinion... SCJP -- this is a real nice exam which brings in very useful and generic feel of a programming feel. ( I wish some thing so renounced and well accepted could have been there in c and c++ ) SCWCD -- this is nice in the sense as most of the API stuff which I had an feel. I saw things comming in a big picture and I could visualise and learn so many things to its WHY About ( I didnt follow any specs ) SCWCD -- I havent taken this but lets see what it has to bring to my know how. I have already read about EJB many a times from book to have an idea ( for interviews ). May be this time a more thorough dissection of the subject. SCEA -- this exam had EJB Q's built in with assignment. With EJB being taken in SCWCD... doesnt there be changes to the structure and requirement to this exam... I believe sun should rework on its requiremtn. ( May be some one from sun moderator group has idea ) I was wondering why we dont have effective certification for SQL/PL as oracle has for DBA. May be thats easy to learn and no one cares that much for the certification. Steve
SCJP1.4,SCWCD, SCBCD, SCEA part 1<br />"Its feels good to know the stuff in detail."
Agreed - SCJP is the core exam wherein one can put his programming skills to display/test. SCWCD - doesn't test one's programming experience but more focused on knowledge of APIs, Web Development scenerios, jspthread model, servlet thread model etc. SCBCD - focused exclusively on EJB. Haven't taken this test so I cant comment what the contents are like ? SCD - Real exam. with assignment - typical hardcore - no doubt. SCEA - again include programming, scenerios type qtns., assignments, EJBs. Sometimes, I too just wonder if Sun can come up with exams like on - java.lang, java.util, javax.sql, javax.security ..... They are becoming too commercial [ September 01, 2003: Message edited by: Sam Cala ]
