Switching back to Java after 4 years.... Some guidance.

Hello All,

The last I worked on Java was 4 years back. It was just a 1 year project and after that I switched jobs and companies as a result of which I worked on Perl CGI, PHP, Python and Cold fusion.

I have cleared SCJP in 2006 with 81%. I now plan to switch over to Java. To do it, I'm planning to take SCWCD exam in December so that with my 1 year experience in Java I manage to get a good start. What will be my prospects - an SCJP, SCWCD with 1 year experience?

I am a good programmer and I am equally good learner. Recruiters demand experience even though they understand that consider ANY platform LOGIC remains the same
Can anyone here shed some light over this?

Regards,
Abhijit.
