Hi folks --
Just wondered if anyone has an opinion for moving on to the Architect's Certification. Do you think more employment opportunities would be available with the architect's path?

hi Cox,
well i do mean to move towards archtiect exam, for the simple reason that it has a lot in it.
I entered Developer with little knowledge of designing, and now i'am well confident of my new found skills.
as far as employment is concerned, i have never been laid off, but yes when you go to the company and explain them what these exams contain, they are sure to be excited and ready with an offer.
Again as always.... it my perspective.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
