Hummm,i need some advice on a career decision
i intend taking an oracle certification
but i am confusd about the path to take either the ocdba or the OCAD.
being ,a sun certified java programmer,it is logical i do the OCAD but i think OCDBA get more money and it is a bit less tediuos.
besides i intend building forms and doing most of my programming with java and oracle already has immense support for java.
i would like to know
1.the job prospects of each of these two.
2.How relevant is the OCAD when you already code with java.
3.ocdba would help my cause.
i am very confused now ,help out.

do the DBA cert.
the 3rd exam is not much use for a programmer, but its still better than forms.
