Hi Guys,

Just after a bit of advice really, I passed my SCJP 5 exam a couple of years ago now, I'd like to add to that by aiming for a JEE cert, but I see since Oracle took over Sun things seem to be structured differently. So a couple of questions really?

- Do I need to contact Oracle to register my SCJP cert with them?
- I'd be completely new to it so not sure which cert to go for first, OCPJWCD or OCPJBCD
- What sort of time frame should I allow myself, I don't want to hang around too long I'd like to get the certs as quickly as poss, just not sure how long I should give myself to study.

Thanks,
Paul

If you want to get a certificate as quick as possible, you can go for any only-exam-based certificates.

Whether is it OCPJWCD or OCPJBCD depends on your skills with these technologies, have you ever worked with servlets, jsp or EJB and JPA? Your familiarity with the subject will determine your study time.

Nope not familiar with any of those, although I do tend to pick these things up fairly quickly
