Hi everybody,
I'm a young software professional having 8 months of programming experience in web technologies of java. At this time, i'ld like to go for sun certification.

There are lot of certifications - SCJP, SCJD, SCWCD, SCBCD, SCDJWS, .. that i have heard of.

But i don't know from where i should start. i'm more interested in XML and web services.

Can somebody guide me out in building my career.

Thanks in Advance.

With regards,
Karthik K.

Definately you have to start from SCJP . You can also take IBM XML exam (141) , it is coming in 10$ . Search the 'other cirtification forum' for more detail .
Best of luck .

Some good advice to boost your desired career is to learn the fundamentals of programming - discrete mathematics. It will enable to become a proficient programmer with OO. A very good book is 'Mathematics for Computing'. It stands out from other book with its student-friendly clarity and quizes & solutions. The author is a lecturer at my institution but it is an imperative recommendation.

The SCJP is a good start but you need the foundations before anaylsing code, which is what you have to do with the SCJP. Just like building a dream house, you can't build it with out the foundations!

Feel free to PM if needed.

All the best and good luck.

HI James,
Your reply interested me. can u tell me how mathematics will amalgamate with OO in building a good foundation. i have a feeling you have a valid point though i cant yet put my finger on it. please elaborate on your theory
Thanks,

Hi Abhi,

To justify why it is essential to learn discrete mathematics to become a solid system analyst/programmer/architect would be:

An good comprehension of propositional and predicate logic will make you write much better programs. Understanding relations and properties of relations will help you understand the OO rules and regulations for OO modelling.

It is a mandatory first year unit for CS-based degrees at UK Universities as it gives the foundations for the rest of the degree.

The statement is true, except SCEA.
