Hi,
Could anyone compare the industry acceptances of the SCDJWS 5.0 or IBM SOA exams (669 and 667)? I want to take one of the exams and why not take the more widely accepted one?
Please feel free to jump in and comment.

Regards,
Abhi
[SCJP 5.0]
[SCBCD 5.0]

I think industry never give value to any thing other then your knowledge.

So in my openion do the certification which you like and learn.

I apologize, the intention was to know - are they equivalent/similar? If not, I understand we cannot compare apples to oranges.
I cannot agree more on knowledge being the power, but come on guys - big names do matter in practical world.

Regards,
Abhijit

Hi!
If you wonder whether the certifications cover the same base of knowledge, then why do not have a look at the curriculum of the two specifications?
I've only had a brief glance, but from what I was able to tell, they cover different things.
The SCDJWS only briefly touches upon SOA while the IBM certifications seems to be mainly concerned with SOA.
Best wishes!
