Hello fellow greenhorns,

This is Swati. Love this place, Javaranch!
I wanted some opinions on which certification to consider next in my career path. Here's my brief bio:
Software Engineer and Consultant for almost 10 years now - worked on Desktop, Mobile and Web applications, mostly in Java and other languages. I have earned 3 certifications in Java a few years ago:
> SCJP (for Java 5) (in 2008)
> Oracle Certified Professional, Java ME 1 Mobile Application Developer (in 2010)
> Oracle Certified Expert, Java EE 6 Web Component Developer (in 2013)

Currently, I am managing a small team and working on developing architecture of a few projects - in Java and else. I propose and develop solutions for client requirements. Sometimes I get my hands dirty with coding and other times I would develop the overall flow and architecture.
Now, I am considering going for next certification but not able to figure out which and also what would be prerequisite for that exam (I find the website for the exams a little confusing :P). I think Oracle Certified Master, Java EE 6 Enterprise Architect would be a good option. Is it true that I have to upgrade to Java 8 (1Z0-813 exam) before choosing any higher level certification? Would you rather recommend me taking another exam before taking Master level exam as part of preparation?

Any help on this would be highly appreciated.

- Swati

No. The enterprise architect exam does not have any pre-req exam. You do have to take a course, but not another exam.
