Hi, as everybody knows that sun exams does not cover all the topics for the particular subject so even if you are certified you need to spend a lot of time to learn other things. Industry does not look at certification.
so is it true with this SCJA? is it required to put money to get certification?
I think this topic has been discussed many times in all the Java certification forums. Taking a certification cannot guarantee any salary hikes or promotions, but it can definitely go a long way towards enhancing your knowledge, confidence and demonstrating your skills. If you are a Java novice, SCJA is a good start.
"The Sun Certified Associate for the Java Platform, Standard Edition, Exam Version 1.0 certification exam provides an ideal entry into an application development or a software project management career using Java technologies. "
If you are a java programmer already, then this is not intended for you. If you wish to show you boss how great you are, and get a pay rise, perhaps this would make more sense:
"Sun Certified Programmer (SCJP) This certification is for programmers interested in demonstrating proficiency in the fundamentals of the Java programming language using the Java 2 Platform, Standard Edition (J2SE) technology."
They are completely different, decide what it is that you wish to achieve, and then look at the certifications that will help you.
