Hi All,

I have completed my SCWCD in early 2011. I am planning to take up another certification, as I consider doing certification is an opportunity to learn a technology in depth. I have around 3 years of experience and I haven't been very comfortable with EJB , but I have good understanding of Spring Framework. Also currently I don't use EJB at my work, neither I expect to use it in near future. So should I go and learn something in which am not comfortable and master it with SCBCD or Should I opt for next higher level of certification, i.e SCEA. Should I opt for SCBCD or SCEA ?

In case I opt for SCEA , how good an architect be without having a good hold of EJBs. It would be great if someone weighs the pros and cons.

Regards,
Ashwin

You need to understand the concepts of EJBs for the SCEA (OCMJEA) exam. You do not need to know how to code them hands on.

Thanks Jeanne for your reply.

I feel doing SCBCD and then doing SCEA would make my fundamentals more strong.

Or will it be a over kill as SCEA expects one to have completed SCWCD itself. Any thoughts.

the SCEA does not assume you have taken the SCWCD nor does it assume you have that knowledge. One could understand Java architecture without knowing all the coding details
