Hi all,

I'm considering going for the JSF cert (the price is right!!), but I'm really unsure as to where to begin with my studying and also in regard to the exam content...there isn't a lot of info regarding these issues.

I was hoping someone could suggest a book/tutorial that would set me on the right course.

Also I would appreciate any advice on whether or not this is something that I should be considering at all or would I be better off pursuing another path?

background:

I'm currently unemployed but have attained both the OCJP & OCWCD


Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Ciri.

Best of luck in your job search.

Did you see this page ? http://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=458&get_params=p_track_id:OCEJEE6JSFD

Or this blog ? https://blogs.oracle.com/certification/entry/1039_02

Google is a wonderful resource : https://www.google.com/#q=jsf+certification&safe=off


You might also look at PrimeFaces as many people seem to gravitate there and abandon JSF in favor of PrimeFaces.

Hi Roger,

I have seen these, but there's no suggested reading material except for the Oracle training course. I suppose what I'm really looking for is one book that will cover the content of the exam, much as existed for OCJP & OCWCD.

Thanks for the heads up on PrimeFaces, I'll be sure to take a look.

Thanks again,
Ciri.

You can find reading material information in the JSF Cert link section: http://www.coderanch.com/how-to/java/JsfCertLinks

Core JavaServer Faces (3rd edition) is a pretty good book to start. Not just for certification but for learning JSF. However this book does not cover all exam topics, you can google the ones that are not covered.

PrimeFaces is still based on JSF. Because JSF is extensible, people build on top of JSF. Other products based on JSF include (not limit to) Richfaces, Oracle ADF, and IceFaces. The underlining principles are the same. Once you picked one product, you are tied to it.

If you don't mind, can I ask you where are you located? I am wondering the state of job market for certified Java professionals in your area.

Thanks for your advice P Wang, I've had a look at Core JSF and I think I'll start there.

I'm living in Ireland.

Thanks again.
