from scjp to scja?

I'm not thinking of getting the scja, but I see scjp ranchers studying for the scja, can any one tell me what is the benefit of doing this? I don't want to say that is a non-logical route, because I'm not 100% familiar with the SCJA( I know it has UML and knowledge of different java technologies) but even for adding this message is hard to know if it belongs to the SCJP or SCJA forum because of the scjp-to-scja backward logic.

thanks,
Armando.

Can you provide some links to JR topics pertaining to this?

Hi henry, I found many rancher's signature profile saying: "SCJP x.0, SCJA in progress..." or similar to it.
But here are some discussion links to it:

well its just passion and love for knowledge.Also SCJA covers much more in theory.Come to think of it why do SCJP....can't you go directly and give SCEA.


[ SCJP 6.0 - 90% ] , JSP, Servlets and Learning EJB.
Try out the programs using a TextEditor. Textpad - Java 6 api

Well, the SCEA is an architect series.. I think you need some year of experience for a certification like that. I consider that going to SCJP and then SCEA is not a backward logic. SCJP is the java language , SCEA is architecture.
What you might wanted to say( or a similar semi-backward logic) is an SCEA holder preparing for the SCJP... ( which is not that illogic if the scea holder wants to do programming)...
I'm just curious, perhaps I will take it too...
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
