I was wondering if it makes sense to go for Sun's app server developer cert since it seems like most job ads are looking for Weblogic/Websphere? I've heard Sun's app server is #1 (Forrester) but is there enough demand for developers specializing in it? Thanks in advance.

Given the impending release of 7.0, I personally wouldn't recommend 6.x certification. (From an administrative viewpoint, 7.0 is very different from 6.x.)
And frankly, from a developer perspective, the Java certifications are more valuable than certification on a particular server flavor anyway. (Since code should be portable.)
If you are an admin, and you know of a potential employer using 6.x, this obviously doesn't apply. But it doesn't sound like that is the case ...

I'm sure that at some point they will have a certification exam for 7.0, but I don't know what the schedule for that will be. They may wait for 7.0 Enterprise Edition to be released.

David,
Thanks for the helpful info but the question remains. Do you know if there's enough market demand for Sun ONE developers vs. Weblogic/Websphere developers? I'm looking through the ads and there's never any mention of Sun One App Server so I'm afraid I might have to go for Weblogic even though I prefer Sun's. Any advice?

David, I need your advise.
Maybe you can point me to some aditional materials about structure of questions in Sun Certified Developer for Sun ONE Application Server 6.0 (CX-310-540) exam?
There are no any mocks or whizs.
I can't find anybody who already pass it and can share the expirience?

I took the beta exam ages ago, but haven't really heard about how the exam has changed since that time. Unfortunately, I don't really know of any good study materials.
Based on the beta questions, however, it definately will require you to have a good understanding of the application server. Generic J2EE knowledge will not be enough.
Sorry I'm not more help.
