OCP or XML certification?

Hi,
I recently got SCJP certification and was thinking of doing another certification.
I was thinking of either:
Oracle Certified Professional Developer
IBM's XML certification
I have Oracle experience but only a little XML experience. I would prefer to move into a job where I would be developing with Java/XML rather than Oracle as I am now.
Which of these would be considered a better certification in terms of job opportunities, salary etc.
Also does anyone know how easy/hard these exams are compared to the SCJP exam? Would it be hard to study for and pass the XML exam with little hands on experience?

Well I think the OCPD for release 2 is retiring.
They have a new one called:
OCP Internet Application Developer,
Oracle Forms Developer Release 6/6i
I think it's roughly the same except they've taken out Reports.
