Question JCert Tracks

Hi All,

This is regarding the JCert track. I am already MCSD, SCJP and currently preparing for 486-UML exam. Plan to get JCert Level 2 Certification, I have been through the JCert site, but its not very explanative. It says that skill 2B can be "candidate's choice from any vendor at this level". Can someone explain to me what it means.
I dont want to go in for IBM VA/ Oracle JDeveloper/HP, what are the other options that I have ?

Thanx in advance,
sangeeta

I am not quite sure what that means, but I have heard that that particular site hasn't been updated in awhile. But what I believe it means is that at the time, companies such as BEA, Sybase and Sun, did not have a particular company specific IDE(company tool) for applicants to get tested on. I believe Sun, may now require you to get certified on their FORTE IDE, while the other 2(BEA or Sybase) companies(who i believe don't have a company specific java application tool) will give you their certification, if you pass a test for any of the other "vender" application tools i.e. IBM, HP, Oracle.

Which to me doesn't make much since.

I mean if I passed the IBM Visual Age test, I would think I would want the IBM solution developer certificate. But If I were going to pursue "only" the BEA levels, I can see a reason to get the BEA solution developer cert.

But I believe the use of "vender" applies to only those companies participating in the jcert initiative.

Does anybody else have more information.

Hi Sangeeta

I too am working my way through the J-cert, and wondered the same thing. I was wondering if I could sit a Jbuilder exam (it was the tool I am most familiar with). I also felt that sitting the VAJ exam was a waste of time given that WSAD has just been released and will make VAJ obsolete!

I wrote to the Jcert people about the first point and got this reply:
------------
Nathan,

The term "candidate's choice" means that candidate can select an exam from
any vendor at the appropriate level. Example: At level 2B, BEA does not
offer an examination; therefore a candidate can choose to take the exam
offered at the 2B level from any of the other vendors.

I hope this information has been helpful to you. Please, feel free to
contact me if you have additional questions or require more information.

Nathan,
IBM has in plan to developer a WebSphere Application Developer
certification in the 1st half of this year. Because the development has
not yet begone, the discussion as to how it will align to jCert has not yet
taken place. The alignment info will be included in the announcement of
the new certification. Suggest you keep an eye on the News section of
www.ibm.com/certify.

I was looking around for information about WebSphere Studio Application Developer (aka WSAD) and found a good IBM press announcement which helps explain this new tool release.

WSAD is built on the new open-source Eclipse architecture, much of which was donated by IBM. What is unique about WSAD is that it unifies different aspects of web development. In IBM's words:

WebSphere Studio Site Developer provides the industry's broadest support for Web services. It includes the ability to publish to, and browse, UDDI repositories, and supports Web services for Enterprise Java Beans (EJBs). The tool is for professional developers of Web applications and sites, and delivers integration support for open Web standards including Java, JSP, XML, rich media and Web services tools. Free preview available at www.ibm.com/software/webservers/stu...eregister.html.

WebSphere Studio Application Developer the industry's first tool to integrate Java and Web development tools in a single environment. It is for developers of Java and J2EE applications who require integrated Web, JSP, XML and Web services support. Free preview available at www.ibm.com/software/ad/studioappdev; full production version available later this month.

WebSphere Studio Enterprise Developer supports visual modeling and composition of applications and the building of sophisticated Java and Web adapters, in addition to standard programming tools. It is for developers and integrators of Web services and advanced Java applications that extend beyond J2EE. Available early next year.
