Hello,
I think the certification isn't important as you expect, the crucial thing in this field, your skills, in other words, the certificate doesn't reveal your skills, it's just announced that you have information about the IT field, you'd focus on how to flourish your skills, don't bother yourself with getting certificates, try to flourish problem-solving virtue, that's all that matter in this field.

Agree with HE. If you needed a cert exam six years ago, and a Java8 exam wasn't yet available, you sat and passed the Java6 version. If you have worked regularaly for those six years, another employer will know there is no need to sit another cert exam.

Moving discussion to our Jobs Forum.

I have worked as a Java developer for many many years and I do not hold any Java certifications. I've never been asked if I do either as part of any interview process.

Hello All, Hello Campbell Ritchie, Thanks for the opportunity
Sorry for inconvinience if any

I want to use Java 6 certification material code etc in new version of Java
I hope java 6 old questions etc will work in new version of Java & tools

I registered for java (Simplilearn.com & Google Digital unlocked), Digital Transformation courses in Simplilearn.com
Digital Transformation training I am attending without Java 6 or java 8,
I felt that Digital Transformation may help in me My personal Home projects
But I saw topics without Java

Only with Java,  Enterprise Applications, Enterprise frameworks can not be created
Java connection to Java Enterprise Applications, Enterprise frameworks needs to be analyzed in Java certification

I not able to imagine Digital Transformation without Java

Java 6 certification not covered any Java connection to Java EE, jakarta EE, Digital Transformation, Spring, Struts, Web frameworks  etc
Java 6 also not connected to Security, Safety

I am thinking about adding some new Mechanical Engineering APIs, Industrial Engineering APIs If possible to Java by working from home

I am also thinking about improving quality of Java in various perspective including interview perspective, Job description perspective, product Architecture perspective

Please guide me on this
Thank you

Hello, Thanks for the opportunity.
Why Java is used in Software Application or Product? is not discussed
But Java certification may needed If any one works in Java Developer Role.
Thank you

I'm simply stating my own experience where I have worked as a Java developer for a long time and I have never been hindered by not having any Java certifications.

Hello All, Thanks for Opportunity. Sorry for inconvinience If any. When creating the post, I not downloaded post after creating it. But when seeing the title again now, Jobs discussion New Group, Two Post merge in to one post, Changes in accuracy of records & modification in this post, Makes lesser quality compared to Single post without merging etc. I feel this post quality changed lot after modification by others.  If possible, Please send note or request for modification in Email etc. For every Post , owner created details accuracy of records needs to be maintained If possible. I am in little fear to communicate with Bigger world level forum like this. If accuracy of record, Quality changes without my knowledge & approval, My fear may increase. My Laptop quality I am fearing some times due to mouse problems, Spelling problems etc.   Thank you

Hi Babu:

Moderators will often combine two separate topics by the same poster that they feel are closely related enough that everyone will benefit from having them being answered together, rather than distributed across two or more threads.

I would not fear this or be upset by it.

There is some judgement required in doing this, but the goal is always the same, to maximize the probability of useful answers being supplied in the short-term and found by others with similar concerns when searching in the future.

Occasionally a question appears to be more related to one forum at first, but then turns out to be more appropriately placed somewhere else as the conversation continues.  These may be moved in such cases if it is much more likely that someone interested in that discussion in the future would likely be looking in a different sub-forum.

All of these things are done in pursuit of having the highest likelihood of useful answers being provided, as many people will only pay attention to certain sub-forums and not others, and for people searching in the future to have the best chances of finding something that will help answer their questions.

You go for an entry job and they ask all about your degree. They don's ask about certs. You work at the entry job for three years and go for a more senior job and as long as you tell them somewhere you passed your degree, they don't even mention it any more.

I actually think it's partly geography based. For example, where I live Java certs are not highly sought after and very rarely form part of the set of required achievements in any job adverts. In fact, I currently have a Frontend Engineer position open for my team and I do not even ask for a Degree as an educational requirement.

I spent three hours yesterday as part of an on-boarding process putting in every last detail of start dates (exact days) end dates (exact days) and contacts details for every single job of the last five years, as well as the exact start dates and lots of other details for both Engineering School and yes, even High School...

So, if you are applying to Large Corporations, maybe not as ignored as if you go work for Tim or something...

Obviously they ignore the certs during the application process, but HR want them whenever you arrive.
