Hi,

I need some advices from you all...

I have over 4 years of experience in IT industry in both PL/SQL and java and am much attracted towards java than PL/SQL. I am working with a product based company (for past 4years). even though i have 4 years of experienced i think i didnt get much opprtunities to do something creative technically.(always doing defect fixes or enhancements on existing product ) . In between i took SCJP 1.5. Now i understood its already late . I need to do something to save my carrier from this 'crisis'. I went for some interviews.but i didnt pass even the first level of interview.

Even though we are using EJB,Struts etc in our product .i dont know much about EJB,servlet ,jsp.... i am trying to learn these technologies ...but i think it will take time...(I know the code of our product ...but i dont know the technical aspect to answer interviews...

I frequently visit this forum... so i have improved my core java and much more

what should i do in this situation. What certification should i take next.SCJP 1.6 or SCJD. i didnt studied pl/sql for interview.

Please advice,

Not trying to be picky. It is spelled "career" and not "carrier".

Identify areas where you need improvement.

-- Brush up on the core concepts.
-- Brush up on some of the sought-after technologies/frameworks through tutorials, self-taught projects, and open-source contributions.
-- Learn the core concepts of these sought-after technologies/frameworks
-- keep improving your interviewing skills.

Good luck.

I don't think it's picky at all. The error was made in several locations -- title and body -- so it isn't just a typo. And its better to be corrected now, here, than to be used later, say on a cover letter.

The last time I felt I don't like what I do, I quit my job and went to a smaller firm who were developing a new basket of products.
Worked hard for 16 months and haven't felt left out work/technology ever since
It sounds difficult, but doing the job you want is one full proof solution.

If you are lookign at java purely out of a developer's interest and not since it sells better in India, you can participate in any of the countless open source projects around.
Google code is a house to many.
Also, it'll look good on your career history to have contributed.

It's all too much of... picky for me.
