I was googling and searching here and there to see whether there are any certifications available for ORM technology. I got two answers

1. OCEJPAD Exam from Oracle
2. Red Hat Certificate of Expertise in Persistence

Now my queries are as follows based on following assumption

To be honest I am doing certification for 2 purposes , first it is best way to learn things and equally importantly second to impress recruiter and to let him know that I possess knowledge.


Query 1 : Which Certification I should Pick, I am already SCJP 1.6 ? Which is more popular ?
Query 2 : Best Book to buy and go like Kethy Siera in SCJP.

Looking Forward for Expert Opinions

Thanks and Warm Regards

If you ask me I would choose OCEJPAD from Oracle (as I don't even know the other one).

Query 2 : Best Book to buy and go like Kethy Siera in SCJP.


There are no study books like that one of SCJP for JPA, but you will find some nice books here: Scbcd-Links. (my personal advice: Pro JPA 2)
