So I have finished SCJP. I hate Microsoft Certifications since it expires so fast and always changing titles and everything. What else out there are good? Better not expire kind like Java Cert!

What are you interested in?? There are certifications for databases, frameworks (like Spring), advanced parts of java like SCWCD/SCBCD/SCDJWS etc...

I am going to take SCWCD. I just wonder what should I try after that. I would like to try something other than Java since SCJP + SCWCD is pretty enough for me at this moment.

Again I would like to say you need to ask yourself what you are interested in. You can go for database certifications like MySql certification...

Web Services is the way of the future my friend. And by the time you're done with that, JSF Certification... there's always a certification you can go for... Just don't get ahead of yourself. By the time you do SCWCD, there may be 12 new Certificates you're interested in.

Possibly, but I wouldn't recommond the SCDJWS to anyone - it's too much about SOAP and too little about REST.

And by the time you're done with that, JSF Certification...

Only if one is certain to use JSF (the use of which is not nearly as widespread as that of other web frameworks, and unlikely to become so).

I'm sure you're right on the Web Services, I'm no expert on the subject... But what would you recommend?


And why do you think JSF will not spread? To me it appears there is no Java alternative. Is front-end web in Java doomed, then?

Linux certifications, such as RCHA or RHCE, LPI, CompTia Linux+ or CISSP for security.

JSF has been around for years, and not become nearly as ubiquitous as Struts used to be - there is no reason to assume it ever will; many people have misgivings about its complicated architecture. There is in fact an endless variety of alternatives: Struts, Stripes, Seam, etc. A library need not be blessed by Sun to be successful, and being so blessed is not always a mark of merit (see EJB 2.x). There are many discussions about this in the Application Frameworks forum and elsewhere.
