Hi Edward,
I passed the SCJD in mid-December and was informed by Sun via email that "Unfortunately, certificates for SCEA and SCJD cannot be processed until the i-7 database is fully updated with the results. We do not have an ETA for resolution at this time. We are tracking all affected candidates, and will respond when we have resolution. " (See my post below).
My understanding, though, is that the "normal" waiting period for getting the certificate by mail is less than 30 days.

Hello Edward,
I also passed SCEA in December (23th) and until now I saw no sign of any processing in the i-7 database. It is not as much the paper certificate I cannot wait for, it is the possibility to publish my certificate by e-mail I need. An e-mail I sent to <who2contact@central.sun.com> about this has been unanswered now for almost two weeks.
The way matters are taken care of is totally unacceptable for a large, profressional company. They should at least keep their customers properly informed when things are not working out properly. Simply a message on the website could have solved this. Further more all problems seem to have started with the migration of the certification database. I find this a real shocker, almost like an oil company that cannot deliver because they've run out of oil! Maybe they have difficulties in finding enough certified personnel...
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
