Hi,

I had recently cleared OCJP 6 with 98% . Thanks to coderanch members who patiently answered all my questions and thanks to Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates for writing a wonderful book ! .I am interested in giving further certification exams in the same category. Can anyone suggest which certification should i undertake ? I have heard about certifications for Web(JSP and Servlets), EJB's JPA, etc.


Thanks,
Adithya.

Congratulations! Great score.
You should go for JSP/Servlet certification next, imho.

I'm always amazed by this kind of question where there isn't the slightest hint which of numerous possibilities might be the most appropriate. Why under these circumstances anyone would endeavour to provide an answer is simply beyond me. We don't even know why adithya narayan wants to take another exam, for crying out loud.

From OP's post:


...recently cleared OCJP 6 with 98%
...exams in the same category.
...heard about...


To me, it is fairly obvious that OP is quite sharp in programming but relatively new to professional Java development.

IMHO, JSP/Servlet is ideal to take him to next level. EJB would be not good at this time because of a lack of context and perspective.

Congrats and keep up the good work


Nothing beats hands on experience. Academic qualifications are there to only compliment your hands-on skills.

Probably, i should have given i bit of hint . I am actually working in a product which is into EJB's, so i wanted to learn that plus i am also interested in Java's Persistence API, hence, i was thinking about Certification for Business Components but people have and are suggesting me to undertake JSP/Servlets exam. Hence, i asked. I am also into android development but i guess there isn't any exam for it. Is there any book for the same ? I have seen people not referring any specific book for this particular exam !

Thanks Paul . I guess there is Kathy Sierra's book on JSP/Servlets for the exam and that should be fine for the exam right ?
