Dear ranchers,
I recently gave the JSCP exam, and thinking about getting certified in JSCD. But I am not sure if it's a right time, because I have no previous working experience in IT field at all - I am self taught. As I see, the knowledge I acquired getting ready for JSCP is not enough to start the real project. Could someone, please, give me an idea where should I go now, after learning Java essentials. Do I need any database knowledge, SQL, JDBC, JSP, XML et c., to be ready to download the assignment? Is there any time limits to submit it?
Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I think that if you have passed SCJP, with the search feature of this forum you can pass SCJD.
Everything in SCJD is from j2se, nothing from j2ee
no sql,ejb,xml,jdbc,servlet,jsp nadda.
general knowledge of a few design patterns,core java, a little rmi that you can pick as you go along,a little swing, and this forum are all you need.

I agree with Andre.
Also think of this exam as a way to get practice and to learn those areas that are required for the assignment. I had never used RMI before doing this project, and things like Policy file, and RMISecurityManager I had to learn as I was going.
I am gratefull to Sun for having this Cert, because it is a great learning experience.
