hi guys,
i have a serious query regarding scbcd

i have heard that the use of ejb is decreasing fast and that there is a clear notice not to use entity beans.and use hibernat or other such persistence mechanism.

My query is ..is going for SCBCD a right decision.

i have just given the scwcd exam.

I have no experience with EJB...
i m learning it right now .
my intention is to learn it for 2 more months..and then give exam in another 3 months.

But then is it really worth.
Do people in reall enterprise market developing new application see EJB as a useful tool???
please help..

I have similar doubts on going-ahead for SCBCD. Also with the new specifications (EJB 3.0) a lot is going to change.
Someone experienced in this area, please elucidate on this.

Specifically for following:
Considering the fact that one has little or no experience on EJBs.
1) Is EJB certification worth in today's scenario? Does it really add some value difference on your resume?
2) Should we go for existing version of SCBCD certification or should we wait for the upcoming versions(if there are any)? Also when are the next versions expected?

Thanks
Jack

Even with EJB 3 now out, there's going to be plenty of companies developing with the older standards for a while - not everyone goes with the latest and greatest. (Many organizations, like governments and large corporations, often wait a while to watch for any bugs in implementations that appear.) So the current certification will have value for some time to come.

As for when a new one might come out... they'll announce it when it does.

Hi Biren,
I have 9 yrs of experinece in designing and developing Telecom application.
I have a couple of certificates in my cap.
My advice is :
1) Go for certification for the knowledge of the subject and not to get certified only.Companies doesnt give a damn whether you are certified or not(There are millions of certified professional).Certification wont give you the job (only the chances of getting called for a interview may increase),in the interview you have to show you know the subject,even if you are a fresher you have played along with the Application servers (I would suggest Weblogic 8 or 9) freely available and real enterprise use them.
2) So be certified and get some real experince along with it playing with app,web servers.

I am planning to get SCBD certified too since I started to work in JAVA,J2ee Enterprise application for the last 8 months after a long career in C++.
I am doing this to quench my thirst for knowledge.
Maybe I advice you to do the same.
Rest is your choice.......
Have a nice day
