Thanks Visu,

That sounds good, but i checked out with in sun site, To write the Architect exam you need to clear SCJP and SCWCD. Those exams are interdependent. So what do i do now?

The architect cert (SCEA) does not have any prerequisites.

To be an architect, you need to know the technology too and the new things java has to offer. So I would go for SCJP, SCJD etc to build foundation...


SCJP 1.5<br />SCWCD 1.4
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
