Hi Vijendra,

First of all, welcome to JavaRanch !

SCJP is the basis Java certification for all other specialist Java certifications.

So, regardless you are planning to be a J2ME, Component Developer or any other Java certification you have to be a SCJP first.

In summary SCJP differs from SCJD in one aspect :

In SCJP you are not expected to know how to create rich client applications or what is the best design pattern to a given common problem or how to handle screen events from within in your application. Such skills are covered on the SCJD exam.

For the SCJP exam everything you have to know is about OO concepts, Java Language syntax, what's legall and what is not when creating a java program from the compiler and JVM point of view.

The SCJP exam has a lot of objectives you have to dominate in order to get certified.

So, in my oppinion, I don't think it's not time to worry about which specialist certification would be better for you. I think you can start by get prepared for the SCJP one and then worry about the specialist certification.

You can find more about each Java certification here.

Hope that helps.

The SCJD exam is a full client to server project that you write. It is not as multiple choice exam. After the project you will take an essay exam which is just there to make sure that the code you submitted with your project was really written by you.
