Hi,

I have around 10+ years of experience in java, j2ee. I have worked on Spring, Hibernate, EJB , JPA, Maven, Ant, SOA, Webservices, REST, JSF, JMS, JSP, Servlets, AJAX, XML, JavaScript, JQuery, Design Pattern etc...

From last 3.5 years working on support project, so not much hands on experience.

Thought of EJB, JSP/Servlet, WebService certification looks requires a lot of in detailed study with 9 hours of job.
Also this certifications has been done by our team members with very less experience. So, need better certification which is according to my experience.
At this experience thinking of starting with SOA study, C2160-669: SOA Fundamentals [2008] certification.

Should I go for it or any other alternatives or any other path to career, please suggest.

Thank you.

Cheers,
Jips

Jips,
What is your goal of the certification? To show knowledge of a specific technology? To show you are hands on?

If the goal is to show knowledge, I think the web service cert *sounds* more impressive. The IBM SOA one has "fundamentals" in the name. Which means someone who doesn't know anything about it is likely to think it is a basic level test.

Thanks Jeanne...I want to show certification knowledge according to my experience...thinking of starting with Basic SOA and then SOA solution Designer(dont know how difficult this certificate would be).
I have also worked on webservices, as per my knowledge SOA certifications is higher than WebService I may be wrong.
