  2. Is this test still relevant??[ Go to top ]

    This test appears to be comprised of a lot of outdated technology and doesn't test any of the real-world technologies: Struts, JSF, Spring, Hibernate, Tapestry, ...
    which people actually use.

    Does it really make sense to have this certification?? I don't think so, but am always open to having my opinion changed. The only Sun certification that appears to be worthwhile to me is the base Java Certification. I have seen several job postings, where the employer indicated that prospects with Java Certification would be more highly considered.

    Although it can be more of a liability than an asset (depending on your audience), I took this certification several years ago when I was transferring my knowledge from MS to Java/J2EE. In my defense, my company at the time paid for all certifications and even gave bonuses for a few.

    I'm not sure if the test has changed much but I don't think it is fair to say that it is based on outdated technologies. If you don't have a deep understanding of the core J2EE web apis; servlets, filters, jsps, contexts, sessions, taglibs, etc you will never fully understand technologies that build upon that base: Struts, JSF, etc.

    But is the certification worth getting? Hard to say for sure but I doubt it. It may give you an edge on your resume, but most hiring managers just want x years experience in specialized technology y.

    For instance 1 year of struts experience will beat out 3 years of Jsp/Servlet experience at a lot of companies. But I digress...

    I did find that studying for the test made me learn a lot more of the apis than I've used in practice. But at least I have the information in the back of the toolbox in case it is ever needed.

    Finally, if I remember correctly, the web test was a bit tricker than the standard java test. But I think that was because at the time there weren't as many good study guides availble.

    You may as well ask if any certification is relevant at all. Is Java certification really relevant given the current changes 1.4 - 1.5 ?. The Java cert test does not even cover Swing (bit of AWT instead), does not cover design patterns or recent crucial features such as NIO etc. Its also far too easy especially when compared to what you'll be exposed to int he real world. I would say that SCWCD was more valuable about 3 yrs ago when JSP, Servlets etc were taking off. To make this Cert valuable again, Sun could add a JSF to its objective, after all JSF provides lot of the functionality that the plethora of mostly convoluted frameworks (struts, tapestry, velocity etc) provide, and does so in a more simple and seamless manner.

    What value would JSF add to the exam? JSF is so convoluted that it's only really going to be useful from within a tool, and if you're using a tool to develop your JSF applications, the best you can do is test very general concepts, and that's only if vendors stick to calling the framework componenets by the same names in their IDEs. Testing JSF syntax would only further reduce the relevancy of the exam - at least right now, it tests some foundational concepts of web applications, even if they aren't all the latest and greatest.
