I m working on EJB 2.1 for last 2 years. Should i go for SCBCD 5.0, as it involve EJB 3.0 or should i go for Spring certification. I realize that Spring framework is more popular than EJB 3 in industry now a days.

Well, thats only up to you.
But if you already have significant expirience in the EJB 2.1 - why not you take some time and get certified at EJB 3.0?
Benefits are:

- See what are the new features, and go over all features in structured way during cert. preparation
- New powerful technology in your tech. stack
- better vision of the differences and +/- of the mainstream frameworks.

I decided, that it deserved several weeks to prepare/pass. What about you?

Thanks Michael for your reply. Yes you have mentioned really good points for my technical profile up gradation.
But I just want to know about EJB 3.0 industry acceptance.

The myth that Spring is being used more than EJB is because of Spring fans having being very focal in the past, blogging, writing articles, disrupting news posts about Java EE/EJB, etc. It's a miracle that this site is one of the few places that covers EJB, yet isn't frequently raided by hordes of Spring fans yelling that we should all stop learning for these crazy SCBCD exams

This presence in the 'blogosphere' might give a false impression that Spring is more popular, but I don't think this is true. In our company for instance we use EJB almost exclusively (on Jboss) and only a small legacy application is build with Spring. Many friends of my who work at tech companies are also reporting they're using EJB. I'm not saying Spring is not popular, it actually is, but I don't really think that Spring is *much* more popular than EJB. With Java EE 5 and certainly Java EE 6, it seems EJB is rapidly gaining market share and is winning the hearts of developers everywhere.

Of course, for your own personal career it definitely wouldn't hurt to have BOTH a SCBCD 5 and a Spring certification ;)

Also one important point that should be noted is that EJB is a standard, specification which is very important to know.
