Since Sun Microsystems (has been incorporated into Oracle in 2009) announced Java technique resolution in 1995, Java has become required technique of important project of system development in industry. Thus, no matter what your future occupation is, e.g. programmer, web developer, system analyzer or J2EE system constructer, you have to fully understand and master Java-based system development technique, which is certified by SCJP. In Java certification system, you must earn SCJP certification first before preparing other advanced certificates, e.g. SCWCD, SCJD and SWBCD because SCJP is equivalent to the proof of Java basis.
Why Java certificate so hot
Java is a revolutionary programming language developed by Sun Microsystems. The other common languages, e.g. C++, Fortran, Pascal and etc., usually needs to change their compiling version according to different platforms. So it results in complexity of software development for information employee in different platforms. However, the appearance of Java modifies traditional compiling method and its cross-platform feature also makes Java program become the most extensive application technique nowadays.
Because of insufficiency of domestic Java talents, the average income of Java professional is much higher. Java possesses rapid, secure and efficient development in immediately promoting your job efficiency. It not only possesses object-oriented and cross-platform feature but owns simplicity, portability, multithread and security. Compared other object-oriented languages, IT employees with programming basis can be easily familiar with Java. In addition, Java has much extensive application in smart card, mobile phone and commerce application system. Many Java users also regard it as object-oriented development tool as well as cross-platform runtime architecture whose element and service can be repeatedly used in database integration.
According to a latest report from Gartner market research company in US, even though IT industry is now encountering the latest depression, the urgent demand of Java technique and related talents is still market tendency right now. This repot says the biggest problem is insufficiency of senior Java professional. Thus, although most companies are now reducing their staffs, they are still desirous of Java talents in the cases of commissioned project.
