Hi Architects / Ranchers

Please advise on where should one do next after achieving the SCEA certification. Please suggest a suitable development plan in this regard. What kind of good books or sources of knowledge available on the subject of Technical Architecture (J2EE)? Does one need to incorporate further certification e.g. RUP, SCDJWS etc in one's indivdual development plan. How can one develop oneself further to think and act like an Architect. I feel that SCEA is only a starting point in this journey for Java developers. I have usually observed that there is nothing like an associate architect role in the industry where one get a chance to work with a senior architect as a mentor to get some experience in this area and usually brilliant technologists are promoted to the role of a Technical Architect.

I have finally decided to focus on SCJWSD next after a lot of thinking. I am currently busy with my work project and that would complete in another 1-2 months. Since, I have already worked on a Apache Axis Web Services project last year so I decided that it is time to now get a certification in the area of Web Services Technology. Maybe that is my next step in my journey to become a Technical Arhitect.
