I've looked at the syllabus for both the Developer and Architect certifications. The Developer exam is fairly practical, and involves a real development project as well as an exam which includes the basics of organizing and designing a development project. Architect certification builds on this and seems to require a very wide knowledge of the whole Java "product range" from JINI, J2EE, JavaMail, Servlets, EJB, JDBC, JNDI and on and on. It also seems to include a lot about alternative technologies and general industry terms. Because of this great breadth it is both hard to study for and hard to examine. I don't think there can be many definately-right or definately-wrong answers in the exam.
Sun seems to assume that the natural progression is Programmer -> Developer -> Architect. I would certainly be happier employing someone who had done the Developer Certification first, it would go at least some way toward showing me that they have some real development experience, and it hasn't all been learned from just surfing the web.
Hey cool! They got a blimp! But I have a tiny ad:
