Congratulations on passing this difficult exam.
But you would not get any certificate for this as exam 486 is part of Enterprise Developer Certification with Websphere from IBM.
The requirements for this certificate is to pass exams (484 and 287) or (483 and 158) in addition to SCJP2 (and 486).
Best wishes

in fact, for among the 4 exams in the IBM cert, only 287 is partially vendor specific.
310-025 or 310-035 or 310-212 are the SCJP.
287 is partially about WSAD, and the rest are core JSP, Servlets and EJB questions.
484 is about the J2EE technologies together with Connectivity Services, like JAAS, JAXP, JDBC, JNDI, JMS.
486 is the OOAD.
Thus, in fact, not much is really binded to IBM, I think.
And most importantly, each exam costs us $10 only.
Nick.
