Hello everyone
I recently passed the OCPJP 6 exam with 83% score. I wanted to ask that what should be the appropriate path for me to own a good position in the IT sector. Should i go for Java developer certification or JAVA EE next??? Kindly feel free if you have any suggestion apart from these two.
Thanks

Robin,
It depends on where you are now. Are you working? A student? Do you have experience in anything? Do you know any other languages?

Harry,
The web component exam is broader interest. Again, think about what your goals are in getting the cert though. Is it to learn? To have multiple certs? Something else?

Hey Harry Dover,

What Jeane said is absolutely right.

You could choose your path based on where you stand. Don't complete certifications only in the intention to get IT job; prepare to gain more technology experience to build your profile value.

The Java Certification path starts from programmer level (OCA & OCP) and ends with architect level (OCM JEA), so my advice, you go for web component certification and later you can choose other certifications like JPA/EJB/Web Services

It is generally best to pick a project that interests you. There are some where core Java is enough. I do think your goal of the learning the material in the web component exam is useful. And taking the exam is fine. I just wanted to make sure your goal was learning and not collecting certs.

Hands on experience is valued more. Work on tutorials and self-taught projects to build your confidence. Try to get an entry level Java job.
