Hi,
I read the article "Big Plans for J2ME" in the March edition of JAVAPro and found it (and J2ME) to be interesting.
I'm a SCJP (soon to be SCJD) with no professional Java experience. My question is: How much experience are employers looking for when hiring a J2ME developer?

Thanks,
Ernesto

This post should probably be moved to Job Discussion. I any case, my company does J2ME. We don't expect any J2ME experience. I don't think anyone does, because there aren't any J2ME devices available yet. The best you can do is play around on emulators. Besides, if you know Java, and understand OO, J2ME isn't too different.
However, we do require either a college degree in CS or real experience. Certifications simply don't add any value. (There's mixed opinions on certification, but I think most companies these days do require experience, unless you just graduated college.)

Hello,
Thanks for answering my post.
I didn't have an idea of what to do after my SCJD task is completed, but now I do.
Funny thing about certifications ... I was advised to list these before the bachelor's degree in the resume. (I guess I can ignore that advice.)
Thanks Again,
Ernesto
