Another view regarding SCJD vis a vis "prestige".
SCJD is supposed to be for those who don't have experience in Java programming. It is composed of a programming assignment and an essay exam. It is good for one's own personal self-development. But as for prestige, I don't know. Many programmers I meet don't hold it in as high regard as SCJP and the other exams. Their main contentions are:
1. that such an exam is done outside of a 'controlled' environment. You can bring it home.... and many things can happen if you bring it home... heh heh he.
2. "Sun should be paying me USD 400 to do the project assignment instead of the other way around".
3. It is more worthwhile to be involved in a for-pay project.

Only one correction
Its in fact people from the lower and upper middle class in cities like Bombay, Bangalore and other metros that constitute the bulk of IT force of India. Think about it, if I belong to the upper class and my dads running a nice business, making a good profit, why the hell would I code at all ?
