Please suggest which exam to take SCJWSD/SCMAD. Which one is more stable and is expected not to change in the near future?

I dont like webservices either and frankly i have no intentions of getting to know webservices
Definitely not as popular as other exams. But soon it will get better.

I am in a confusion to chose which exam among IBM 288 and SCDJWS. I think that IBM 288 gives us how to work with webservices with Websphere while SCDJWS only concepts. Also does IBM sends a certificate in case we pass this exam.(As you know that IBM 486 has no certificate and is a prerequisite to IBM Certified Enterprise Developer, Is it the same with this too?)
You're right, SCDJWS - is vendor-neutral, IBM 288 - WSAD 5.1 oriented.
AFAIK, there is a paper certificate for 000-288, but Nicholas can confirm for sure
can any one suggest a book for preparing IBM288 exam?
