I have bought Head First EJB(Feb 2008 Edition in India) for EJB2.0 exam

But I want to know, how relevant is EJB 2 exam in todays global s/w industry in genereal and Indian s/w market in particular.

Or should I stop EJB2 and directly jump to EJB3 exam?
But I think there will be some difficulaty in getting books for EJB 3 exam, in India.

I have passed SCJP 5 but my job is not in Java, but I wish to switch to Java. So I have decided to do this certification.
So how good this exam will be in this perspective.

Please let me know your views.

When I searched on Sun.com, I could not find EJB2 exam (CX-310-090 ) listed there.
( http://www.sun.com/training/certification/java/scbcd.xml )

Has sun stopped this Certification exam?

yes, in an effort to push people to move to EJB 3, Sun has discontinued this exam.
I find it a pity because there are still many projects using EJB 2.

Kaushik,

Unless you know for sure you will need to work with EJB 2, learning it instead of EJB 3 is quite simply a terrible experience. I know that I would never opt to touch another EJB 2 project again.

If EJB 3 had not done such a great job fixing things, I would have switched to using Spring/Hibernate for sure...and I've used EJB 2 since 2001...

Cheers,
Reza
