Well,I have never ever developed software using Java SE technology stack,I have been working only on Java EE for the last 2 yrs and 2 months. So,I am really keen to learn stuffs like RMI,Swing,Threads etc so that I can complete a full circle and obviously build my repuatation as one who can build software using Java SE.Last,but not the least, I want to learn new things. That's the motivation for me.
I gave the SCJD exam because of the following two reasons
1.Wanted to learn topics like RMI and locking. 2.Its a very good certification(I feel so) as it tests your capabilities as a java developer with the help of a project. [ July 05, 2008: Message edited by: rohan tiwari ]
I have been in IT for the last 7 years and 3 months(5+ on Java/J2EE).
I have cleared my SCJP last month with 88% marks, that proved that I am good as a programmer, now would like to prove the same for the Developer. It would certainly add value to my CV, and I don't need to justify to anyone that I am a good Developer :-) [ July 07, 2008: Message edited by: Ali ]
