regarding IBM Developer Certification in JAVA (IBM Certified Solution Developer ,V3)

I am pretty new to this forum..
I did my SCJP2 and have been thinking of going for SCJD.Recently I saw about this certification in IBM's website..The title is, IBM Certified Solution Developer - IBM VisualAge for Java, Professional Edition, V3
Reading through the objectives of the three tests which are part of the exam, I am of the impression that the second test has more emphasis on the design side, something like the SCJA .The third test requires one to do programming in JAVA using VisualAge..
here is the link..

Could somebody advise on the merits/demerits of this certification examination ?
It would be great if somebody could also comment on how the industry considers this certification in comparison with SCJD and SCJA, I somehow have the feeling that this has both analysis&design, as well as isn't this 'two in one'..?
please correct me if I am wrong..

Have you actually tried to run VAJ on a machine with less than a half GIG of memory? Geesh!
Seriously, I'd rather be Sun certified through and through than with a particluar vendor's IDE - unless you plan to work for IBM or one of their 'partners'.
