I am working in the IT industry for the last 4 yrs. I was earlier working on IBM Mainframe technologoes and some testing projects. But now I want to shift to Java/J2EE projects. I have cleared the following certification exams - IBM 285 (ICAD), IBM 286 (ICSD), SCJP and SCBCD. As I said, I don't have much hands-on experience with Java/J2EE projects. Can you please suggest how should I go about planning my future move? I don't think there are any good Java/J2EE projects currently in my company. Will the certificatrions help in getting a decent job? I am basically interested in doing some good developement work. My current salary is about 3.5 la. Please advice.
Thanks in advance.
