Do u guys think JCert is more valuable than Sun's Java Certifications? I have done the Level 2A UML exam and dont intend to do on. Reason being that the vendor specific exams expire at a very fast rate and u have to re-take the exam for the new server version to become current. One good example is IBM's Websphere exam. Please give views.
I don't know that Sun's exams are any more or less valuable than the JCert series. I think they compliment each other nicely, since the Sun exams are a 'general knowledge' field, while the JCerts are more product specific. And, WebSphere wasn't so bad. Yeah, I'm not thrilled IBM is expiring the 3.5 certifications at the end of the month (heck, even MS is allowing NT 4.0 MCSE's to keep their certifications now), but they did make it possible to qualify for free vouchers to take the new 4.0 exams. Just a matter of keeping up with the latest version. ------------------ Theodore Jonathan Casser SCPJ2, SCWCD, ICS (WAS 3.5/4.0), ICSE (WAS 4.0)

SCJEA isn't part of the JCert process, no. The only Sun exam that's currently part of their schemata is the SCPJ2 exam, which is the single required exam for JCert Level I.
