This week's book giveaway is in the OCMJEA forum. We're giving away four copies of OCM Java EE 6 Enterprise Architect Exam Guide and have Paul Allen & Joseph Bambara on-line! See this thread for details.
I find this certification interesting, but would like to seek some advice from SCEAs.
In my domain of work, it is unlikely I will ever use JavaBeans. Given that and the fact that SCEA is weighted in favour of JavaBeans, what is the value in getting this certification? I can see UML, Design Patterns and the exercise of architecting a system as being interesting.
Would the IBM Architect certification come anywhere close to SCEA?
