Hi,

Recently, I came to know that BCD certification exam has been split in 2 parts for JEE 6 - EJB developer and JPA developer.

My question is - in which order I should give those exams? Further, does order matter here?

I've cleared SCWCD (and hence little bit aware of JEE) but I do not have any idea about EJB and JPA at all (I know a little about RMI though).

Please Advice.

Thanks in advance.

EJB is not as much in favor as it used to be, while JPA has become a lot more relevant. So, instead of the EJB exam, it might serve you better if you go for JPA exam.
HTH,
Paul.

I agree with Paul, JPA seems more popular to me.

However, I can tell that JPA exam requires knowledge of the EJB (for example, EJB transaction attributes, knowledge of Dependency Injection in Java EE classes, etc.)

It would be easier for you if you first take EJB exam, and then JPA exam.

Regards,
MZ

There is no choice. Clear them both!
