Hey @Neha, You don't really need a certification for becoming a java developer. Knowledge plays a greater role here. Know the concepts, learn how to apply them and ace the interview, show them you're worth it and you're good to go. If you don't know much about java I would recommend you to learn and in that case taking up a course would be a better option as you'll get to learn as well get a certification which can be presented in your resume.
