Hi all,
Quick question.
What is the difference between programmer and developer certification?
Which should I do first?
I have about one years java experience.
Cheers

The other night I was lying in bed lookink at the stars, and thought to myself, "Where is the roof?".

Hi Ian,
You can look at the differences in the Sun site
http://suned.sun.com/US/certification/java/index.html
The programmer exam covers all the fundamentals of the Java that you need to know. The developer exam, is applying your knowledge to a given project / task. You cannot do the developer exam unless you pass the programmer exam. So, the programmer exam, is where it all begins!

In a Nutshell:
- Programmer Exam is a pre-requisite for the
Developer Exam.
- Programmer Exam is a sit down exam in an
exam center, where you answer single and
multiple choice questions, along with fill
in the blank answers in a timed
environment. Developer Exam is a
code centric exam - they send you a
programming assignment with requirements and
stubbed out elements, it is your job to
complete design, implement, test, and
document. There is no strict time limit
( days, weeks, months are ok in completing
it ).
Also - the Web Component Developer Exam may be
an attractive alternative to the Developer
Exam. The Programmer Exam is also a
pre-requisite for the Web Component Developer
Exam.
Enjoy the Java!
