Hi Vivek,
Congrad. for passing, however, I am sorry to tell you that you wont get any certificates if you have not passed all 3 exams: 287, 484 and 486.
Once you passed the above 3 exams, together with SCJP 1.x, you will receive the ICED certificate from IBM. Otherwise, you wont get any certificate.

To moderator: I think it would be a good idea to have a FAQ on IBM certification with a link from here. Such questions like this one appear at least every week

Thanks for the quick response,
It is really bad that I wont be getting a certificate from IBM, I have given 484 and 486 but I dont know what 287 is about ??? I think that particular exam is particular to IBM Product.
And moreover I am kinda board of given certifications I may have not given that many certifications as many as most of you have given, but overall I have given about 3 certifications in the last 1 months time. And I also gave 2 certifications in Nov03 and Dec03.
I have a voucher for 141 and that expires on the 31st March 04, but I dont even feel like giving this one.

IBM 287 is specifically for developing J2EE applications using WSAD 5.0.

I have a voucher for 141 and that expires on the 31st March 04, but I dont even feel like giving this one.

Try your best to fulfill the exams.
I am also in rushing of IBM certifications, as well as SCJWSD beta exam.

Hey guys, I'm checking in with the other moderators about building a FAQ. Never done one before for the forums I moderate, but like the suggestion. I'll let y'all know as soon as I find out myself

Thanks a lot man, I got it booked for the 23rd of April 2004, that is really good since I have enough time to prepare for it, Since I was feeling a bit sick giving all these certifications one after another.
Comming to think of it now since I have a lot of time, the time taken to prepare for the exam is going to expand to fill up the extra time.
Since I have posponed the exam beyond the 31st of March, I think I will actually prepare for the exam and give it, rahter than just strolling over to the test center just to pass my time.
