Hi

As part of my project I am going through Portlets with IBM WPS v6.0.
I think I am spending enough time to prepare for the exam too.

Could anyone tell me what are the various certifications in market.
And which one is good to write, along with some resources/books.

Appreciate your response...

You can go for Test 829: IBM WebSphere Portal 6 Application Development.
Also, available is Test 399: IBM WebSphere Portal V5.1 - Application Development.

Those are product-specific certs though...

Seems that Test 829: IBM WebSphere Portal 6 Application Development. is the latest one.

Could any one have info regarding which books need to use for this?
Any how I am learning Portlets meanwhile I will do this one also.
But to know curious, Will it play some role in our resume?

I don't know about books, but you can follow my signature links for some mock exams.

My portlet development book started as a certification guide for the IBM test, but I decided to take the IBM stuff out and make it a standard JSR168 learning guide. Still, it covers most of the portlet development objectives on the IBM exam.
