They mentioned that they are also supporting Java Tomcat 5.5 Webserver to deply my Java Applications.

Hi Vikram,
Adding my two cents to the suggestion given by Kailash, There are couple of points that any recruiter sees from fresher.

2.Urge to learn new things and adopt yourself to the environment.

When you show that you are certified, It indirectly shows that you have interest to learn new things and your interest in software development.
Here is catch22 being certified in java..some companies may not have requirement in java technology so you have to communicate that you are flexible to work in other technologies too.It shows them that you are flexible.As a fresher this is one of the important aspect any recruiter looks in candidate.

Last but not the least when you show them that you are certified their expectations goes make sure that you confident in java ..

all the best in your job hunt...

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
