My recommendation would be to prepare for OCE for Java EE 6 Web Component exam to know the latest Java EE APIs and improvements.
Why OCEJWCD isntead of OCPJWCD?
The answer is simple “to know the latest technology” and most of your clients may upgrade from older versions to latest in few months or so. If you take Java EE 6 web component developer you no need to worry about upgrade exam until Java EE 7 , but if you take OCPJWCD you have to upgrade again to Java EE 6.
Why Java EE 6 Web Component Certified?
There are many benefits about being Java certified, you can validate your knowledge, improve your work efficiency and even you may get higher promotions with better salary. Your project assignment experience may not be enough to learn all JSP and Servlet concepts. So certification adds more value to your profile.
Exam Preparation Tips
This Web Component Developer Exam is designed for having practical knowledge in Servlet and JSP Technologies. Coding is the best way to learn programming skills, so you must work at least developing a small web application using JSP and servlets. Remember to use EL tags covered in exam objectives to understand better.
