Hi All,

Currently my work area is application development and enhancements(J2EE Struts Framework). But i wish to go into software Product Development domain (companies like ADOBE, etc.). I have just cleared SCJP with 88%. I want to know if the SCJWCD, and the related sound knowledge i would develop while preparing for it, would help my prospects in the software PRODUCTS development industry? Suggestions for any other java certification in this regards would also be appreciated.

Thank you all in advance.

Hi Akash, welcome to the ranch And congrats with your SCJP (or OCPJP6)
If you are going for Web development projects SCWCD (JSP + Servlets) will be really good for you, followed by SCBCD (EJB3 + JPA2) and SCJDWS (Web Services). All current exams are J2EE5 based. J2EE6 exams will be coming by end of the year which includes an additional JSF exam, and a JPA2 exam.

If you are doing core Java projects, SCJD can be a huge plus. You need to do a project yourself and then appear for an essay exam based on that. Project includes RMI / Sockets, Threads, Swing etc. I am not sure what all API's and technologies the Product development companies use because I worked mostly in web technologies in Java.

Good luck!

Thanks Rajeev, that was indeed a great help. Now i am very clear about the certification path to follow for the web application development domain.

I am still unclear about the way to go for advances into Product development domain. I specifically want to know what Java API's to master .Any insight into this from anyone would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
