What Enterprise exam to start with.

I recently passed the OCPJP exam and I want to start learning the JavaEE and I have no previous experience of using the Enterprise Edition and have very limited experience in programming for the web.

My question is, where to start? What JavaEE exam should I take first? For example, would it be more logical to take the Web Services exam before the Web Components? Should I start with JavaBeans?

I need some pointers here, and I would appreciate it if you who know your way around the Enterprise Platform could help me to distinguish the different exams.

Thank you!

as you said you have very limited experience in JEE , then i recommend you start with OCEWCD i.e web component developer exam. this will help you in other certifications as well for example EJB. it does not mean that you cannot do EJB certificiation right away after OCPJP but as moderators say all the frameworks like EJB , struts, spring have there base in servlet and jsp so it is better starting from the base and then moving it up. once you have done OCEWCD then you can either go for EJB or for web services.
