Could you please give me a piece of advice regarding what exams to go for: those listed on JCert (Enterprise Dev) or Sun's?
I have passed SCJP and was going to take IBM 484,486 for JCert Ent Dev but got to know that BEA has left jcert So it now seems JCert is dying and going for SCWCD and SCBCD makes more sense.
What certification is more valuable in the industry now?

It doesn't look like anything is left for jCert. However, my reading is that the same set of jCert tests will still be used for the IBM Certified Enterprise Developer role, as listed on http://www-1.ibm.com/certify/certs/adedwssv5.shtml
The IBM 486 OOAD UML test has no equivalent competing test, and is a very good tests of knowledge in this area. Therefore I think test 486 is very much worth doing anyway. But as for test 484, it is pretty much equivalent to SCWCD and SCBCD together.
However, Sun and BEA are not doing themselves any favours by not offering job role certifications like Enterprise Developer.

It was a good idea. I think the issue's just that a lot of companies weren't getting anything out of it in terms of cross-training. *shrugs*

IBM certifications no longer part of jCert

It looks like jCert will not survive.
