Hi Ranchers,

I have some exp. on Sun One Portal Server . I was thinking of getting certified in Portal Technolgoies . I came across WebSphere Portal Certification.

My main question is should i take this certification considering that my exp. is in Sun One Portal Server ?

Thanks in advance for your replies..

I can tell you that the WebSphere Portal Certification, Test 399, is largely based on JSR-168. There are a few C2A questions, and a few WebSphere Struts questions, but the test is largely JSR-168, so if you're competent in that area, you should do well.

I do have a book on JSR 168 portlet development. You can also find some free portlet development and portal admin tutorials on my website, along with a variety of free, online, mock portlet exam certification simulators.

Good luck!

Cameron's book is great! I learned a lot from it and easily passed the test.

Hi Huang,
I need to start from scratch would this book "IBM Certified Solution Developer Exam Certification Study Guide" from Cameron help me in getting started? Actually I have a deadline to complete this exam, so dont want to look for multiple books now.

Please suggest which all books you used to clear IBM 399?

Thanks
Joe
