I have cleared OCMJEA 5 last week , I took OCMJEA 5 because when I started preparing OCMJEA 6 was in beta but I have prepared assignment using JEE 6. Part 1 score was 92% and Part 2 & 3 is 132. Could you please suggest the next certification I should prepare to be a better architect? I know TOGAF is an option but this too theoretical.

Thanks JavaRanch for your support.

Congratulations! TOGAF is an enterprise architectural framework. If you aren't intending to use TOGAF or do enterprise architecture, I agree it isn't a good choice.

I think your next step should be to practice. And to read some books on what an architect should know such as 97 Things Every Software Architect Should Know. It's not just about the tech knowledge. Many important skills an architect needs to have aren't something that can be tested on a cert.

Thanks Jeanne. I must say your SCEA experiences write up helped me a lot. My IT experience is 10 years. So should I wait for some more years to gain knowledge on enterprise architecture and then pursue TOGAF or it is a right time for that. My point is doing TOGAF is actually worth or should I pursue any other certifications like AWS solution architect etc. now?
