I passed the SCJP this summer and would like to move to the next level. I'm looking for advice on which level that should be. 3 out of 5 job postings I see want some Oracle skills/experience. Does anyone suggest that the Oracle developer cert is the way to go? I don't read much about it here. Any advice on the merits of this cert versus SCJD would be greatly appreciated, along with any comments on how to begin to acquire Oracle skills and what employers are really looking for when they say "knowledge of Oracle". Thanks, everyone.
Not completely on topic with this forum. But as for Oracle Developer cert, that is for Oracle Forms and PL/SQL. You don't need or probably don't want Oracle Forms. But PL/SQL is very important. If you can easily create Stored Procedure, and can also make creation scripts for your table structures, then you have what most of those ads are looking for in Oracle experience.
