In your opinion, what is the most prestigious Java Certification one can get? I am assuming it is SCEA, but maybe there is another TOP certification from BEA, IBM etc.
Thank you for your comments.

Another view regarding SCJD vis a vis "prestige".
SCJD is supposed to be for those who don't have experience in Java programming. It is composed of a programming assignment and an essay exam. It is good for one's own personal self-development. But as for prestige, I don't know. Many programmers I meet don't hold it in as high regard as SCJP and the other exams. Their main contentions are:
1. that such an exam is done outside of a 'controlled' environment. You can bring it home.... and many things can happen if you bring it home... heh heh he.
2. "Sun should be paying me USD 400 to do the project assignment instead of the other way around".
3. It is more worthwhile to be involved in a for-pay project.
