Having both of those myself...
Personally, I would go for SCWCD if I had the choice of which to go for. I think it's probably the more transferrable of the two and shows that you have a knowledge of the underlying technologies behind Servlets and JSP, rather than a specific implementation.
I would, though, recommend substituting IBM exam 158 for 488, as 488 is being retired slowly but surely. Not that 158 won't likely be retired in favor of a WebSphere 5.0 exam in the near future, but 488 is "VisualAge based" while 158 is "WebSphere based".
