Exactly! and the new one covers much more and I am sure with the addition of Schema and web services it will gain a lot of respect in the industry as well. So no point waiting any more....simply throw yourself in!!!
All the best!!
Kelly
Thanks Ajith!
Be assured of my participation!!! I am in perfectly good health now!
Cheers!!

Dear Shyam,
First of all sorry for being so late! Actually I met with an accident and was on bed for more than a month and thus didn't participate on this forum. Also my email-id is no more valid as it has been blocked.
As far as your queries are concerned Mapraputa has answered them extremely well! Thanks Mapraputa!!! as far as the following point is concerned:
3)It is recommended to go for single step XSL tranformation when processing logic is highly interrelated.
When to go for multistep tranformation?
is concerned...even I haven't used multistep transformation as yet but from what I have read till now it is required to maintain intermediate steps of the transformation for understanding and maintainability. It is similar to breaking a large procedure into smaller methods for better comprehension.
Hope it helps.
Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.
Regards
Kelly
Dear All,
Congratulations!!! finally we have a place of our own!!! thanks to Purvesh for his suggestion and dear Ajith and Mapraputa for taking it on.

Dear awais Bajwa,
I think I gave $150 for the exam!
Dear Doug Wang,
Thanks for your appreciation! I am an IBM certified XML developer. Or are you asking which is the next certification I am going for? well, then the answer is SCWCD.

Dear Raj,
Thanks for your appreciation! and wishes! Well when we are saying XML design it's not the OOAD design that we are talking about. It is about XML, I mean where to use, how to use. Which part has what functionality? What will alter if I require a particular change in the system? It's basically an understanding of the various componenets of XML and related technologies and their interlinking.
If you are new to XML and can't use it in your current project, then consider making few sample applications, may be few web pages only or making two simple applications talk to each other using XML. As far as the preparation goes, it depends on how good a programmer you are. If you are experienced, then it won't take much time and effort to learn XML even if you are new, otherwise locate a little extra time and effort for that. For a good programmer new to XML I would suggest 2-3 months for a good score. 2-3 hours everyday should be enough.
Hope it helps!

Dear Pallie,
Well I guess I have spoken a lot in the last mail. Please don't take my words on the face. Why don't you ask Ajith about it? He has been around for quite some time and I am sure he has a better understanding of the matter.
Are you listening Ajith?
Hope it helps
Love
Kelly

Dear Jason,
One more benefit that I see is that it's much easier to communicate with XML documents! If you add anything to your EDI format you need to do a lot of work to incorporate it with your existing application. Secondly, XML is extremely robust!!! you can validate your documents before processing. My experience says that it is an extremely powerful utility of XML, otherwise if you do that checking in your code, you will get mad...basically you can use standard parsers and validators while working with XML which you can't do elsewhere.
Last but not the least...it's quite easy for people to understand XML documents once you provide them with the Schema or DTD, otherwise it gets really difficult to communicate the structure of documents between applications.
I hope it helps

Dear Pallie,
Sorry I forgot to answer your query in my last mail. Yes, XML Certification is harder than SCJP, but not very much. Passing is equally tough (or easy ;-)) in both the exams but when it comes to scoring I would say XML is harder, I haven't heard the kind of scores we hear for SCJP. Well for books and resources please refer to the links I gave in the starting of this thread, one very useful link is

As far as SCWCD and XML are concerned, I believe you should first go for SCWCD, I have heard that it has more respect than XML certification. Please don't think that I am demeaning XML certification. I am myself SCJP and XML but not SCWCD. But my current view is that SCWCD has more respect than XML as Sun is promoting it much better than IBM is promoting XML. Lots of people know about SCWCD but a very few care about XML certification. Though in the long run XML will emerge as THE technology but currently I would suggest that first go for SCWCD and then XML.
Hope it helps. Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.
Dear Raseswari,
You are always welcome! I am always there for you, just let me know.
