Hello There, I am planning to take the SCWCD exam before Feb end. The new price is £165(which was £150 before I left to India for a vacation in December).

I just wanted to know if any of you has a voucher already and not planning to take the exam. Could you let me know the price please.


Many Thanks.
Hello Alok, Is the voucher still available? If so, can you please let me know the date until which it is valid.

Also, which all exams is it valid for?

Thanks!

Well in that case, you can begin with learning Java(+ a little bit of j2ee fundamentals). Stick to your present companyand if they have "any" Java based projects going on, try to join that team and get the most of it.

Depending on your circumstances, you can later change the company or what ever you always wanted.

Vasu,

If you have no experience at all in Java, then you have a lot of work to do. Are you familiar with java, if yes how far? have you experimented/written any code on your own?

Hi Guys,

I know its a very old post to reply for.

I have been working with J2EE for the past 3 years but I decided to knock the SCBCD just a week back. I could not run this AdviceClient without moving the classes and I could not sleep yesterday night. Its only today that I saw Kathy's post on this error. It worked!! I was shocked for a moment, but then it was a great relief.

**Thanks Kathy**

Anu, In UK the situation is different compared to US. In US consultants run behind u to take u in. But in UK its the reverse, if you don't have a proper visa. Most of them talk to you only if you have a work-permit or eligible to work here.

The best way is you can try thru Indian Companies to come here and then switch over after 6-8 months(what ever!).

I guess there are a lot of companies in India who would hire to send employees on on-site projects in UK. It would be better to come that way, rather than with your own expenses.

You can get HSMP faster if any of the companies here in UK are willing to take you. You can apply for the interview and if they are OK with your skills then you can request for a reference letter from the company. Using this reference letter you will get HSMP in 2-3 weeks. Without that its a long shot..experience in India hardly matters.

It took me nearly 2 months to get my first job here. So Good Luck!

Hello,

I appeared for a written test for a J2EE Role(in UK)

It had multiple questions on design patterns, core java, Applets, ejb, struts, mvc,and swing. Transactional and memory issues were also asked but not concurrency scenarios.

But for "Java Testing"..no idea. Perhaps more from Core Java Concepts.

the exam consisted of about 20 Multiple choice and 5-8 EJB code stuff. I did not find the coding tough as I have 4 years of solid hands-on.

Multiple choice questions were on design patterns, core java, Applets, ejb, struts, mvc,and swing(the topic i am not comfortable with). Transactional and memory issues were also asked but not concurrency scenarios.

Hi All, A small update from me. Today I attended the written test. The questions were from Java fundamentals, servlets, Applets/Swing, EJB. I don't know how much I scored but I guess I did OK. My agent said he will call me and let me know about it.

From what Tejal and Paul said it is a blind buy of Java testing packages.

Instead of grilling unrelated topics(skills that are not mentioned in the job description), they might use that time to grill the candidate's experience in the Interview.

If I go thru the exam, at the end of the interview in the 'Do you have any questions?' part, i am going to ask the purpose of the test for an experienced person.

Tejal/Paul,

are you into a project? Would you mind sharing here, how a typical work day for a J2EE developer is in UK?
