Hi folks!
My question is about what u would do in my situation, in the best interest of my career.
I work in a banking environment and have 3 years of J2EE experience.
I have taken the java programmer 1.4 certification, and am thinking about WHAT certification to do next.
The question really is should i wait with the �Developer for the java 2 platform� exam or even skip it, and do the �Web Component Developer for Java 2 platform enterprise edition� as j2ee is my field. Or should i do them both, and in which order ?
What do u ppl recommend me ?
All views appreciated.
Thanx.

I am also in the similar boat. I have decided to
go for SCWCD, since most of development what I do is
at the back end.
If you are using or planning to use Applets/Swing then SCJD would
be good.

There's no real correlation between the two certifications. One will not substantively help you prepare for the other. Take the certifications that suit your career, and take others if you'd like to expand your horizons.

Couldn't say that in any better way.
Sheriff's right. SCWCD looks like a better way for most of my J2EE fellows, and that's the path I'm walking through.
I would like to encourage you to take the SCWCD, but you should look at your future career first.
In the end, that's still up to you, my friend.

My 2 pence (yes not cents).
I did the SCJP and am now preparing for the SCWCD as I work on web apps all the time and would like to continue upon this path. I am hoping to clear this in mid september and then go for the SCBCD, as I really need to get going with EJBs.
But like the others said, each has their own needs and determining factors.
