Hi all,

I currently have approx one year J2SE experience and want to change jobs. Is it worth me going for another J2SE position or should I go for a J2EE one? Will I be able to get a J2EE position without commercial experience? If not then how can I get into it? I am already a SCJP and SCJD, but would it maybe worth going for one of the J2EE certifications before looking for a J2EE position?

Many thanks for you help.

I feel this is a very personal decision, whether to go for j2se or j2ee.. but in case u r one of the techie guys, u can go for j2ee too.. as there are lots and lots of opportunities for j2ee guys.. and there is a lot to learn too!
I work for an MNC in india, and we are made to work on j2se/j2ee/.net or whatever the business demands. I am not sure of the trend at your place. Try finding out through your friends.
As far as the certification exams are concerned, I personally feel not to go for one without any work experience. I also see that there are a lot of guys out there with multiple certifications - enthusiasts maybe. If you are one of those, you may go for it; and it may help you get J2EE projects also.. as for preping for those certs, u will anyways have to practice some coding - and that means you have enough knowledge to start your career in this field.

Not sure if this helps, but just wrote in my views.

If you are getting an opportunity to get into the J2EE feild,
then go ahead. you can learn a lot of new technologies. As Pawan said, for certifications in J2EE, you need some experience.
