I'm a graduate student and close to my graduation. Right now, I'm using WebLogic to do my final project.
I'm planning to have the certification from eithor WebSphere or WebLogic in the near future. No decision yet. Anybody in here can help me to decide which one to take? Thanks a lot for your thoughts.

Hi,
I leave in Massachusetts. Close to a big Sun and Allaire office. I'm searching for a job. I see a lot more job offer for WebLogic than WebSphere. I also see more people certified WebLogic than WebSphere. I'm currently studing for the WebSphere certification and will probably do the WebLogic just after.

I think these two share the same part of application server market as well as job market.

Hello, friends,
Thanks a lot for your thoughts here.
It seems that holding both is the perfect way to meet the job market. I will consider to have it one by one.
Best regards,

Pradeep,

Will JWhiz be working on any BEA WebLogic certification mock exams/tutorial or for the Sun Enterprise Architect?

Although I won't take bea exam in the near future. Wouldn't it be nice to have some links page assembled like in SCWCD exam???
But I see, there is no moderator in this forum.

Dear Friends,
Nice to see so much interest among you all people. Its giving me a lot of learning. Thanks!!!
Jeff: We already have a product for WebLogic Developer Exam (Ver 6.0), check it out at http://www.whizlabs.com/weblogic/weblogic.html
We've plans for SCEA but not yet decided about any dates.
Axel's Idea about links page looks great; why don't you put a new thread requesting for this; It will definitely be noticed then.
I hope this helps.
Regards and best wishes

Hi,
I will say weblogic; in my opinion it is the most widely used app server in the market. Though websphere is also very close. But in case you need to work on websphere, you should logically go for it.

I agree with Rony, plus Weblogic is a better tool to study J2EE.

Friends,
Thanks a lot for your replies. Now it's clear for me. I like to appear for WebLogic first.

I have both certifications, and I found the Weblogic easier and more interesting than the WebSphere. In WebSphere certification they ask you many questions very specific to the WAS tools, so it's a bit boring having to learn product-specific stuff. It is also true that in Weblogic they ask you how to configure this and that, but it's a bit more intuitive.
I would suggest then to start with Weblogic, which is more focussed on concepts. Once you have WebLogic, preparing Websphere is only a matter of a couple of (boring) weeks. BTW Weblogic documentation is really cool.
This is my 2 cents experience.
