DIfferences between Developer & Web Component Developer exams
posted 10 years ago
The SCJD (developer) exam is focused on building a practical project with Java SE. SCWCD is about Java EE (was J2EE in the old name) to build Web applications, and there is no practical element (just a multiple-choice exam). You are correct: you must pass the SCJP exam first, before taking either the SCJD or SCWCD (but you can take only one or both, in either order).
