I was preparing for SCWCD and almost went thru the HF. But is WCD worth giving?

As far as I can see there are plethora professionals out there who know JSP, Servlets. Moreover I think JSP is getting old and professionals are now using JSF/Struts/Spring. Similarly I read somewhere that EJB is also slowly going out.

So what is use of learning a technology which won�t hold in future?
I remember from my Web Semantic and Cloud Computing class professor saying that web services and Service Oriented Architecture is the next big thing and there is scarcity of professionals in that, and if you are looking to work for Google then you should learn about web services.

So I think rather toiling day and night on SCWCD and SCBCD one should put energy in SCDJWS. I am not saying that one should not learn JSP/EJB/Servlets, but I don�t see that there is any real use of putting of so much effort in that and getting certified. One can learn without getting certified and certification requires a lot of effort and time.

So it�s better to get certified and learn about web services, which is something new and not many people know about that.

What you think ranchers?

Thank You
