As a Java developer with a few years of experience (including some xml and webservice projects) and SCJP certification, do you think that it will be beneficial for me to pursue IBM's XML certification? By beneficial, I don't mean knowledge wise, but rather: would it help land a job, or an interview, or get a raise?
Also, what's in your opinion the absolute best and most sought after certification in the industry (Beyond SCJP and IBM/XML)??
Thanks for your brutally honest feedback!

The value of certification depends on where you are looking for job.
I do not know about US , but for indian job market it is not of much use.
But it looks good in the resume . If during the process of interview a tie breaking situation happens then certifications can be of some use.
