I have been slow in learning the concepts of JSF and Facelets when i was first introduced to them in my work 8 years back. I struggled initially but later started enjoying the learning process. During those times i resolved to take up the Architect certification path once i master the Java EE technologies. I have always been reading and hearing about the Assignment being difficult to implement until we have sufficient expertise we will not be able to clear it. Hence had been postponing this for a long time. Thanks to the lockdown and also the certification retirement deadline. I took it as a resolve that if i do not act now i will never be able to take this certification.
Thanks to Java Ranch members. The certification stories and forum discussion helped me a lot in planning, designing and fine tuning my assignment to perfection.
Hoping to continue the Java journey by taking up Java 11 certifications in future.
