hie guys, I just cleared OCJP with 98%. Now i'm confused whether to take SCWCD exam or not. Also i've heard that not much people take it now days and its almost dead.
Should I do other languages like Php instead of this... Please HELP.

Why should the SCWCD exam be dead? I think that there are many frameworks out there based on servlets, MVC pattern and it is valuable to master all the concepts behind servlets.
Maybe I am wrong but I would be glad to hear other opinions too.

Yes, all these front-end frameworks are built on top of the jsp/servlet specification.

Having knowledge on specification is a great advantage in understanding and using these frameworks.

Most common are Struts and Spring MVC, these are front-controllers.

Yes you can do it by servlets alone, but it would be a lot of work, like building your own framework.

knowing the basics of jsp would do fine when using frameworks, but it would be better if you know whats going on underneath. I know a lot of developers using Struts, but does not know how to use servlets.

Yes, JSP/Servlet is the core specification for presentation tiers, the other framework (or specification) run over them. Therefore is good to know about it.
I think JSF is the most popular MVC framework today passing over to Struts.
