Just passed the SCJP 6 and am looking for suggestions on what I should take next...

I currently do no front-end or web-component based development. My job does have me working on some web services, EJBs, weblogic/spring framework environment but nothing too intensive or fancy.

So these are the ones I'm evaluating:

SCJD - I view this as the default logical next step up from SCJP... seems challenging.

SCDJWS - My job currently utilizes web services technology, so this is a logical choice

SCWCD - I'm considering this only because it's one of my weaker areas in Java, but at the same time I have no use for it at the moment at my current job. It would be really nice, however, to put on my resume. But if I stay at my job for a long time, I might forget this stuff quite easily as I have the worst memory out of everyone in this forum.

SCBCD - My job uses these... barely. This one seems the easiest. How much is there really to EJBs? Rhetorical question.


1) Any ideas on above?

2) Also, I want to take a bit of a study break, so if i take a 6 month break and forget all the little annoying Java nuances from the SCJP 6 exam, will it affect my efficiency in studying for the above advanced certifications?

Thanks!

I did SCWCD after SCJP, but if your job uses web services, then you can go for SCDJWS. SCJD is not necessarily the logical next step after SCJP. If you want to do desktop application development, then you can do SCJD...
