Recently after passing SCWCD, when I asked for logo, SUN sent me link to "Sun Certified Professional - Java Technology" logo. On inquiring about SCWCD logo, they said: We currently provide one Java logo for all five Java Certifications. Any idea? [ September 22, 2003: Message edited by: dharma cris ]
Seems like all the companies are trying to make money on developers! One certificate is not enough so OMG has put three and with $200 price tag for each!! jCert has solution developer cert. where one need to take exam not on technology but on IDE (by IBM)?! IBM has so many cert. on same thing that it's difficult to differentiate between some, even by developers, let alone recruiters/HR people.
Hi Andres, I have been working with XML a lot since last year and a half. I found lot of questions on data modelling, schema, xslt and scenario. Skonnard(concise and to-the-point) and XML in Nutshell(readability) complements each other nicely but for schema, xfront.com's presentation is more useful. Official book "Professional XML" may be very good but I found it too descriptive, so I didn't refer.
Today I passed IBM - XML with 87% Resources: XML in a Nutshell XML Reference by Skonnard WEB resources (thanks for all those links) time approx 20 days. Thanks for all! [ July 29, 2003: Message edited by: dharma cris ]
Hi Luciano, I understand Sun being the parent of J2EE, you would choose sun (or there is other reason?). But why IBM 484/483 after SCWCD & SCBCD ? They don't overlap? What about I heard that Sun exams are more technical detail oriented oppose to those from IBM, being more, overall conceptual understanding oriented? [ July 25, 2003: Message edited by: dharma cris ]
Well, a recruiter said he appreciates resumes with 2-3 relevant certificates but ones with long list of them, sounds superficial and amateurish! So, may be no problem in getting many certies but only few on resume!!
