Hi,
I am SCJP & SCJD. Now I am planning to take IBM XML Certification(141) & IBM WebSphere application Server Certification (158). Which one I should take first. Please suggest in this matter..
Thanks in advance!!

Both these seem to be parallel exams without any pre-requisites. You could go either way I guess.
If I were you I would go with XML first....

I would go for 141, unless you are using websphere right now, since 158 is IDE certification, who know what will happen 6 months down the road.

I, for one, think you're doing the right thing. It won't hurt to wait a few months to see when IBM will bring out the exams for version 5, and the XML exam will probably stay the same for a good while to come.
So don't second-guess yourself.
