That makes sense. My current employer and my client employer are very interested in Certifications. I'm not aware of any certifications for JavaScript. I just learnt that CIW is one such option. So, My intention of this question is, are there any other certifications available that are standard in the market other than CIW for Javascript. Thanks for understanding!

If you feel that studying and taking the certification will prepare you for that then go for it as a personal learning tool.



Thanks for the reply. I'm used to taking SUN/Oracle exams for JAVA, so similarly I'm wondering if CIW (Certified Internet Web Professional) is a good benchmark for JS related exams or is there anything else better than that?
Has anyone taken this exam for JavaScript? Is this good enough to verify your JS skills as well as prove it to your current or prospective employer?

Thanks I'm trying to understand two questions.

1. Are people still taking these exams? If yes, can someone explain how is it is useful for the real world/job?

2. If the world has moved on? what is the alternative to SOAP?
Thanks, sometimes it helps to learn better by having this exam goal.

I don't know. Can you recommend a more recent exam related to Java Mobile?
This is the first time ever, I saw no replies. Is this such a bad test?

Exam Number: 1Z0-869
Associated Certifications: Oracle Certified Professional, Java ME 1 Mobile Application Developer

I'm planning to prepare for this exam, can someone guide me with the benefits/advantages of this exam.

When am done with the preparation of this exam, what knowledge will I gain?
Will I be able to develop apps for iphone/ipad/android? or will be able to develop software web applications for mobile devices? etc

Any detailed explanation will be good.

Thanks!

Thanks,

10) Are there any drag and drop questions on the 1z0 - 858 exam?

HF edition 2 says as
"The updated SCWCD exam is called “Sun Certified Web Component Developer for the Java Platform, Enterprise Edition 5” (CX-310-083), but don’t get confused by the title. The updated exam is still designed for Java EE v1.4 and for the servlet v2.4 and JSP v2.0 specifications."

I have the older version book (1.4). Should that be enough then?
