Hi,
I'm Java Programmer and not a sysdba but wondered if there is a certification from Sun, IBM, Oracle, MySql that would show off my JDBC/Database skills to a potential employers?

I'm currently planning to study towards the MySql Developer 5.0 as I thought it would show a knowledge of databases from a developer perspective, and I wanted a to know more about mysql.

Any Advice?

Scott

Hi Scott -

Beyond the Sun Java certifications, I suppose that would depend on the syllabus from the database vendor. For example, IBM offers several certifications for DB2. The composition for DB2 (9) Certification is:

Section 1 - Database objects and Programming Methods (16%)
Section 2 - Data Manipulation (26%)
Section 3 - XML Data Manipulation (10%)
Section 4 - Embedded SQL Programming (4%)
Section 5 - ODBC/CLI Programming (4%)
Section 6 - .NET Programming (7%)
Section 7 - Java Programming (7%)
Section 8 - Advanced Programming (14%)
Section 9 - User Defined Routines (12%)

See http://www-03.ibm.com/certify/certs/08002203.shtml for more info.

Perhaps the MySQL certification has a similar syllabus?
