They are vendor specific which means you will have to work with one or more products from one specific vendor. Checkout the Objectives Level 3B, Exam 2 Design and build web components for JavaServer Pages (JSPs) and Servletsincluding vendor-specific features. Develop clients that access the enterprise components. Demonstrate understanding of database connectivity and connection pooling including vendor-specific features. Handle issues facing transactionally aware EJBs. Use vendor-specific tools to develop and debug enterprise applications. Configure and package EJBs, Servlets, and JSPs and deploy them in the vendor's application server. Use vendor-specific tools to validate, monitor, and manage aspects of the application server, such as security, performance, connection pools, and session management. Configure vendor-specific application server for clustering, load balancing, and failover capabilities. Analyze the implications of these issues on application development.
IBM's WebSphere Certification is one such thing. Eventhough about half of the questions pertain to EBJ technology, the rest of them are about the product by itself. SCJEA is not vendor-specific because it focusses on the J2EE technologies in general factoring out the implementation tools supplied by various vendors. I think that's the difference. ------------------ Ajith Kallambella M. Sun Certified Programmer for the Java�2 Platform. IBM Certified Developer - XML and Related Technologies, V1.

Thanks, Ajith I just passed IBM test 406, IBM WebSphere Application Server Standard Edition V3.5, this afternoon. In addition to SCJP and OOAD with UML tests, I became an IBM Certified Solution Developer. Now what I need is to get a free voucher for SCJEA!
