I'm a newbie in Java. And want to take up SCJP and SCWCD. Since I'm interested in exploring the JSP & Servlets part. I contacted NIIT for undergoing those courses. They told me that Sun Certified Java Application Developer (SCJAD) is a combined course consisting of both SCJP & SCWCD. I never heard of anything like "SCJAD" before!! So I remained silent. Now I'm doing a lot of google search.. but found nothing like "SCJAD".. I thought it might be possible that she mistakenly told me "SCJAD" instead of "SCJD"!! Does SCJD cover combined syllabus of both SCJP and SCWCD??? Please advise.
Well, they certainly meant SCJD instead of SCJAD. I think your path should be SCJP then SCWCD. If you take these certifications, you'll certainly learn a lot, but that still won't show that you know how to use the Java language to solve problems of the real world. Well, that's where SCJD fits in!
