Hi!

I recently passed the OCPJP exam and I want to start learning the JavaEE and I have no previous experience of using the Enterprise Edition and have very limited experience in programming for the web.

My question is, where to start? What JavaEE exam should I take first? For example, would it be more logical to take the Web Services exam before the Web Components? Should I start with JavaBeans?

I need some pointers here, and I would appreciate it if you who know your way around the Enterprise Platform could help me to distinguish the different exams.

Thank you!

I suggest you the following order (from easiest to most difficult):

1) Web Components Developer
2) EJB Developer (or JPA Developer)
3) JPA Developer (or EJB Developer)
4) Web Services Developer

Best regards,
MZ

Ok, so Web Components seems like a good choice!

But now another boss at my company recomends taking the EJB "if you wanna learn the Java Enterpise Edition", but he says it's "of course your choice depending of what you wanna learn".

So now my question is: Since I have no experience of Enterprise Edition or Web application development or JSP or Servlets, is there a huge benefit in first taking the Web Components exam, or is it just a bit harder going straight for EJB?

It is just a bit harder going straight for EJB. go straight to EJB or you can chose Web services before EJB&JPA or other way round.

I totally agree with Mikalai's suggestion.
1) Web Components Developer
2) EJB Developer (or JPA Developer)
3) JPA Developer (or EJB Developer)
4) Web Services Developer
