Please java Gurus.., I need to know the best books to use after clearing SCJP to learn things like servlets, RMI, Corba and UML as nobody seems to want to delve on the developers exams!!!Or the next best add-ons before leaping for jobs!
Any comment or links appreciated.
Thanx

HI Paul,
beleive it or not but none of the topics that You have wrote:corba, uml, servlets are needed for that exam. You are supposed to do an assignment that asks You to do a client(gui) and a multithreaded server conected to a "database". Rmi is one option but You can use simple sockets and serializable objects. The assignment is hard and after You have done it and it is "ok" then you go do an exam. And You know how tricky Your programmer exam was then You can imagine how Picky the sun is going to be marking Your assignment. Anyway there is a lot of people who have jumped from programmer exam right to architect exam... and there is a reason for that !!!

exactly, You can jump right to achitect exam(which is on hold now). But developer exam is more valued out there because You are given an assignment and there is programming involved while architect exam is just one more multiple choice exam out there.

Hmmm, that's what I suspected. I passed the SCJP recently (with a very good score, though I say so myself ), and I've been thinking about doing the developer exam. I don't do (much) development in work (I mostly do tech. writing), and I'd like to have something to show that I can actually write working code. Glad to know my RMI knowledge could be useful...
