Passed OCJP 6.0 exam. Can you please tell me next certification I should go for? Someone suggested me Web component developer and business component developer. As I discussed with other people and some told that JSP and Servlets are not usable anymore as they were. I am looking for entry level Java field job and later on want to get expert in that.

i wouldn't agree you that JSP and Servlets are not usable anymore. yes these days there are lot of web application frameworks but they all are built upon jsp and servlets. also if you are not well versed with Java EE edition then you should first go for jsp and servlet exam since it will provide the necessary base and will also help when you will learn web application frameworks. how those frameworks came into being. why they were needed. after doing OCEWCD you can go for EJB or web services exam.

Hello Ritesh Kumar Singh,

Congratulations!
And Welcome to CodeRanch!

The next certification totally depends upon what kind of work you are doing, or want to do.

If you are interested in Servlet/JSP, then WCD is really nice certification (nowadays they also cover JEE 6 version).

If you are quite serious about core JEE technologies, then you can go for EJB certification, but in my opinion, doing WCD followed by EJB (and JPA if you want) would give you pretty broader view of enterprise application (which might come in handy if your long term goal is to do enterprise architect certification).

But if you are interested in Core Java, then natural upgrade would be OCMJD exam.

I hope this helps.
