They seems to me quite similar in their objectives.
Any comments?

Well, you're going to end up covering quite a bit of J2EE stuff when you're talking about WebSphere, since it is a J2EE-compliant app server. I figured that the 483 (down the road for me) is probably a more in-depth look at the APIs, while 488 (which I've taken and passed) has quite a bit that concentrates on IBM's implementation and the mechanics of the server software.

Thanks so far.
What do you mean with mechanics of the server software?
Deploying in Websphere?
How important is VAJ for the test?
It will be replaced by WSAD, which for me is an excelent product.

A requirement to get Websphere Enterprise Developer cert (JCert Level 3) is to have already passed Solution Developer cert (JCert Level 2).
If you want to go the IBM route then passing test 283 - VisualAge is necessary. Of course any Jcert level 2 certification will do, so you can get level 2 from another manufacturer then go for Websphere. Or you can wait for WSAD certification, but no sign of a release date for that yet.
