This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
I see so many posts here about UML certifications - IBM 486 OOAD/UML and OCUP (OMG Certified UML Professional).
I would like to requst moderators to create for separate forum for UML related certifications.I think UML deserves its own forum.I am sure there are many of us want to discuss more about these certifications in detail.Currently many of the questions are very high-level (what is the diff between the two certifications, guidance etc) but not may detail-oriented questions (like discussing scenarios,diagrams,solutions etc.,) I am sure creating separate forum will enable us to discuss more in detail - currently it is lost very easily if you post in tis forum "Product and Other certifications".
It would not be that fesible as IBM 486 is going to be retired and there is no replacement tests. Number of candidates for OCUP (as well as DB2/Oracle and other IBM tests) is far more less than Java certificates, and thus, there seems no urgent needs for the change. Same case applied to Rational UML.
