Is SCBCD worth?

Hello Gurus,

This is my first post in this forum so if I have posted this message in a wrong forum I am sorry.

Any ways my question is as follows.
I'm familiar with EJB technology but we do not use this technology in our office. I was just wondering how well accepted this technology is? If it is not then is it worth spending time in preparing for this exam or one should prepare for SCWCD instead of SCBCD?

If you could express your opinion I will be obliged.

I don't think there's a specific answer to your question. A lot depends on what you expect to get from certification.

EJB is definitely a very widely accepted technology. Widely accepted doesn't mean it's the answer for every application though.

My opinion is that it's better to start with SCWCD, especially if you're not currently working with EJB.

Hey Chetan

Seems like your situation is similar to mine few months back.Even i had a fair knowledge of EJB but had never worked on it.though had been working on JSP and Servlets,so started preparing for SCWCD.
My suggestion is go for SCWCD now,easy,to prepare and pass ofcousre.
AFter that u can always go for SCBCD.Both have good weightage in the market.
THough in interviews people in any case find out if u have worked on this technology or just have the theorotical knowledge.

SO CHeers and start preparing for the exam.Do let us know which way u are going

With EJB 3.0 on the horizon, how does this affect the value of the certification?
