What other Sun certifications are required as prerequisite to Sun Architect Certification.
Some people have told me that to achieve Sun architect Certification it is a requirment that you should first achieve Sun Programmer Certification and then Sun Developer Certification or Sun Web Developer Certification.
Other people have told me no other certifications are required as a prerequisite.
Can anybody clarify ?

Hello, there seems to be no other certification required for Enterprise Architect certification as Sun Website states. But the architect certification consists of a "knowledge-based multiple choice exam, an assignment and essay exam".

The programmer cert was required a year or two ago, I guess. But now they have apparently removed the requirement in order to woo more candidates (who just want the architect certification).

I think that step was nice as there are many experienced system analysts who would not like to go through the syntaxes offered in SCJP.
We better have a check to Paul Allen to make it confirmed.

As far as I know, Sun have never required any of the Programmer or Developer exams for the Architect exam. However, I think anyone trying for SCEA should be able to pass at the Programmer exam at least, if they want to show they have good knowledge of Java.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
