More than certification concertate on adjusting your status while you are in US that gives you more job vs getting lot of certification. This is the fact which i have learned through my experience. Regards,Ramesh RajamaniDate: Sat, 7 Apr 2012 15:38:24 -0400

Thanks for the replies/insights.
Interesting to read that certification in the java world has about as much worth as QA certifications: none :-) I am a self-taught Network Admin (I did do the exam for certification way back), then QA Automation developer. I expect I can do the same with java.
The 'problem' (for a beginner anyway) with the java world is that it's so diverse and consists of many vocal) factions. I thought the java certification might help me focus on the basic, core skills right now, so I can better understand the wider java world and make more informed decisions down the road. So, not so much for job prospects, more as a guide to java.
Briggs: I am lucky in that I have a full subscription to the O'Reilly Safari library through my employer, so I can check out (and sometimes download) most books I'm interested in. I worked my way through the first three chapters of 'Head First Servlets and JSPs', and am now going through Murach's 'Java Servlets and JSP' (the paper version, since Safari doesn't have it).
Shannon: Appreciate the suggestion of working with my present employer and getting my feet wet that way, it's something I may try to do. Fortunately, they are open to career moves like that.
Again, thanks for the advice.
Back to NetBeans :-)
