There seems to be a lot of overlap between this cert and the Sun certs. Is there any benefit in gettting this cert if you already have the SCWCD and SCBCD certs? Is this cert widely recognized? What is best way to prepare for this cert?
Keith, its easier to get the cert if you already got SCBCD + SCWCD. There are some extras in IBM.484: - JAAS - JAXP - JCA - JMS 484 is part of IBM certified enterprise dev which consists of: - 486 (UML + OOAD) --> for me this was most useful certi I have ever done. - 484 - 287 its like 484 + aditional knowledge of Websphere tools for developing, testing, deploying and administering J2EE apps on Websphere. regards Axel
