Hi to every body,
I completed SCWCD. Now i need help whether its better to go with SCMAD or SCBCD please anybody can explain which is best to set my career ofcourse they are different.If i go with SCMAD can't i go with SCBCD?
It really depends on what your focus is or where you feel new opportunities would lie. Technically, the two certifications do not depend on each other and can be taken in any order.
If you plan to work on Enterprise Java, then SCBCD is a logical progression from SCWCD. SCMAD does not depend on any knowledge gained from SCBCD. However, if you are interested in working with mobile applications, it is the right one to take.
thanks for the reply sir, but how are the opportunities in j2me.

My general understanding is that it is decent in Europe and Asia and not as much in USA. Compared to Enterprise Java, the J2ME opportunities would definitely be less, mainly because of the sheer size of enterprise deployments as well as due to the much longer history of J2EE compared to J2ME.
