I want to work as a HADOOP ADMINISTRATOR.
I currently work as system admin.
But they prefer Java experience or database experience.
but I don't think We need any such experience, I have worked on SAndbox of Hortonworks.
Managed cluster's.etc.
But I need a job for HADOOP admin.

Then should I do JAva and Hadoop certifications?
Or I should search a job for Java devleoper.
(I am not very good in coding..!!).
I can develop small apps like chess or tic tac toe. etc good in Applet,graphics...BUT NOT A HARDCORE PROGRAMMER. AND I DON'T EVEN WANT TO BECOME.
For eg look this ad. ----------------------------->

Not sure why people would ask for Java development experience for a Hadoop administrator role, as Hadoop administration is a big and complicated area that clearly needs Unix sys admin (or perhaps DBA) experience much more than Java development skills. For example, I'm a developer who has been trying to install a Hadoop cluster in our office, and I definitely don't have the right skills! So I think the people who are asking for Java skills for a Hadoop admin are just looking for the wrong thing.

Maybe you should find a potential employer who at least knows what they should be looking for in a Hadoop administrator, so they will appreciate your relevant experience. The advert you showed seems to be looking for the right kind of skills:
Experience in managing Hadoop Clusters Having BigData Skill is mandatory Experience in Hadoop admin

You could look at suitable Hadoop administrator certification with Hortonworks or Cloudera, although these are probably quite expensive.

Also, Hortonworks Sandbox includes lots of excellent tutorials aimed at developers/data analysts e.g. in Pig, Hive etc, which might be helpful if you think you need to know more about how people actually use Hadoop.

Thanks chris webster.
I But the certifications are very costly.
I think i can complete some online course and get a job.
But I think java certification would also help, Because I am also interested as HADOOP DEVELOPER.
Thanks for your suggestion.
