Sorry your topic said "need advice", so I gave you some advice. Maybe a more descriptive topic would have helped.

I'm curious what you mean by "application oriented programming".

Anyway, if you want to write webapps, the SCWCD exam is a great next step. Learning Hibernate or Spring might be helpful (and Spring does have a cert), but if you're going to be writing webapps the SCWCD will have lots of great knowledge for you.

OK, So Spring, to me would be easier for you to learn first. Hibernate has a large learning curve.

At this time there isn't a Hibernate certification. SpringSource, just this week announced the release of Spring 2.5 certification exam.
