With Spring and Hibernate around...do you think its still a very good certification to pursue? How much do employers value this certification when compared to SCWCD?

Yes, it adds value to your career profile.

Benefits for individuals

• Clear evidence that you have experience in designing, developing, testing, deploying, and integrating Enterprise JavaBeans EJB Edition 3.0.
• The certification empowers in driving EJB Programming based on 3.0.
• SCBCD/OCPJBCD certified programmers can easily design and develop the code based on EJB 3.0.
• Being a SCBCD/OCPJBCD certified developer helps you to improve your career potential, gain more respect, and boost up your job security and opportunities.
• With SCBCD/OCPJBCD certified developer, you become more competitive in the job market.

Benefits for organizations

• Enables management to distinguish SCBCD/OCPJBCD certified programmer as Java professionals who can develop quality code efficiently and effectively.
• Helps in deciding the best development APIs or Java Components based on latest Java EE APIS.
• More confidence to work on Java Code technical decisions with business partners.
• Enables project team to get best coding practices and guidance from a qualified Java Developer.

You can also consider taking OCE EJB and OCE JPA certifications instead of SCBCD.

Hi!
I don't have anything to sell, but yet I will supply my thoughts on your question:
First of all, even if I wouldn't have had a lot of opportunity to use EJBs in day-to-day development, I still feel I gained valuable insights when preparing for SCBCD.
This may, of course, vary depending on your background.
The other thing I would suggest is to refrain from asking what employers want, but instead ask yourself what do you want to do.
If you are more interested in front-end development, then there may be better choices than SCBCD.

Finally: The more tools you have in your toolbox, the better chance you have to select the proper tool for the task at hand.
Best wishes!

I second his thoughts, It is not only about what employers want. It is what do you want to master !

Very good question at the right time.I feel its not about spring or ejb. Its about the concepts.
I started with EJB initially and it made me understand spring very easily. It may be the other way around for others.
Your question is worth of asking may be during old EJB days. But not i feel EJB 3.0 is good to have it in your tool kit and any certification will only add to your profile.
