I have noticed a lot of discussions in this forum about whether Weblogic or Websphere or iPlanet certifications are better. This has prompted to think about how well the goal of JCert is being achieved:- "certified once ,recognized everywhere".
To the people who have more than one JCert certification, how do the exams compare? Is an IBM Level3 cert really equal to a BEA Level3 Cert, and how do both of the compare to Sun Certified Enterprise Architect

My thoughts are that JCert level 3 would be more respected then Sun Architect because it is not following 1 companies agenda. From what I see you have to know just as much to pass the JCert level 3 as the Sun Architect.

In my opinion and after seeing the performance of few of my aquaintances, I see JCert much more useful and value adding than SCEA exam.
JCert is really picking up. I am also seeing lot of changes happening at their site and the number of people having the certification growing fast.
I feel strong about it. My 2C!!!

Jcert may be more useful than SCEA. But when you look at JCert's roadmap, at the 2nd level, only available vendor exam is IBM 283, for VisualAge, a product which will be replaced in future.
I found Oracle also provides exam to the 2nd level JCert, but somehow, it is not in the roadmap of the offcial JCert web site.
