I was preparing myself to SCEA exam, but because Oracle put course requirement about U$2,000.00, I gave up. Because I am working for a bank who make use of WebSphere, I decided for preparing myself to "IBM Exam - 667 Architectural Design of SOA Solutions". I carefully read the explanation in IBM website and I became very interested (http://www-03.ibm.com/certify/tests/obj667.shtml).
Could someone answer my following questions:
1) Is there some course requirement for Exam 667?
2) The list of RedBooks is too large. Is there some recomendable books?
3) Is the concept inside this exam still up-to-date? I noted that the certification is from 2007.

Same here, I was interested in the Oracle certifications but they are really expensive now. Question for you, is the IBM: Architectural Design of SOA Solutions demanded by the industry? Does it have a value similar to the SCEA?

Eric, I am new to IBM world, but I believe that this certification is very appropriate for architects, but, it is far away to be a substitute of SCEA. I am still unhappy with Oracle decision and I am looking for some certifications and directions to improve my skills as architect.
