Hi,

For me, as a consultant, I like to think it has some importance. It will at least show that I'm on top of my game.
As a future recruiter (as I move up the ladder, one day...), it will certainly be a positive criteria for me.

I think the certifications will help you get to the interviews. After that, you're on your own

As for the SCJD specifically, I believe most people have no idea what it is and assume it is SCJP or very similar.

Regards,
Alex

I think SCJD certification has a little thing to do with Java EE job. But by finishing SCJD, you already have an experience with developing project, solve the problem, and do the development iteration proccess.

Hope that's help

Hi,

Jeffry said it has little to do with Java EE, because SCJD is not related to JEE (no ejb, no web services, no application server...)

SCJD is plain old java objects. Standard java programming... RMI on which EJB are built (EJB 2.0 at least) is the closest thing to JEE.
Business Component, Web Services and Architect certifications are really in the JEE world.

Regards,
Alex
