As a start, here are the certification home pages for all the manufacturers I can think of: BEA Systems Hewlett Packard IBM Oracle Sun Sybase I know this is JavaRanch, but I suppose we also have to include Microsoft even if it is just so we can razz them.

I just finished the CIW Enterprise Developer track. Which includes SCJP and topics like OOA&D, JDBC, EJB and DOC using CORBA. Two parts (SCJP and OOA&D) also count towards jCert. Erik Dark [ March 15, 2002: Message edited by: Erik Dark ]

Most of the certifications out there are in networking, system administration, and DBA. Certification are more established and carry more weight in those areas, although certifications are becoming more popular and important in all areas. For software developers, the CIW certifications in web development. mentioned earlier are a good possibility. There are a number of lesser certifications than the master level certification mentioned. IBM has a number of relevant certification discussed on this forum, in Java, XML, and OOP and UML. Of course MCSD is the most established software development certification, with options in a number of Microsoft languages.
