I just got the SCEA results and it was "P". This marks the completion of major Sun Java Certifications. Now only Upgrades in future. Isn't it Kewl. Yahooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!! H Singh SCJP (1.1, 1.2), SCJD (Java 2), SCWCD and SCEA.
Congratulations!! I got my result a few days ago (SCEA 80%) as well. I was satisfied although a score is not good( usual component diagrams' problems). Now I'm a bit confused... My first wish was to see java vacancies on some job portals ( javajobs, monster etc). Here is my conclusions : - SCEA / SCD / SCWD is a desirable requirement but not essential. - If you haven't an appropriate work visa, leave your hopes. - Hands-on WLS/WAS expirience is really better than any certificates. It's my opinion, of course... It may be wrong Best regards, Alexey SCEA, SCJD, SCJP Going to take IBM 486 OOA/D with UML, but does it help me in job searching? ... No

Congratulation!Alexey Fedorov Can you say more about your project?I'm preparing the PART II,but I'm confuse about which EJB standard to follow,1.1 or 2.0,and how to connect database.Do I complete all the codes or just send the UML picture?Sorry I'm so confuse about it.It seems so different with SCJD. thank you very much
Alexey, you are right. I would add only that even with all these top level certification its hard to get a job because of work visa (all direct employers want citizens). But if you have them (certifications) + visa + appropriate experiense there are good chances.
Alexei, I have a friend who got his job just a month after completing scea, and thinks he got it just bcos of scea. Trick is he never told the interviewers his visa status(lucky for him, they never asked), after 2 rounds, they really wanted him, so they took him even with the visa requirement.
I wish I can get SCBCD and SCEA soon then I can concentrate on looking for a job and the chances will be better for more, but I am looking for jobs right now and I am going nowhere, I cant even get an interview with my qualification and certs it which pretty sad.
