Please forgive my ignorance, I don't mean to offend anyone...but unless I am working for IBM or one of its affiliated companies, what is the purpose of having websphere certification? Is this something thats realy in demand on the job market?
eric, to some extent your opinion is correct but if you see j2ee has good potential and mkt is picking up and certification like this (be it on websphere/weblogic) will give u edge among others. regards eric
Though im still preparing for WAS, but definitely its in much more demand as compared to SCJP, which has been taken by so many people specially when java boomed. Ofcourse if your profile and work expereience has no relation to J2EE tech's it may not be useful.

It would be valuable as long as it is kept "real". If you have no experience with something and you know of a company that wants someone who knows that something, certification helps out. It shows you know how to use it. The "real" part is in whether they can keep people from giving away information about the test which is meant to stay confidential. An alternative is that they can change the test often.
