If you are talking about this IBM exam then i feel Sun's exam is better as from what i could make out from the contents of the IBM version its more focussed on development alone and not the design and architecture aspects (Sun's exam has 2 sections devoted to those). Also Sun's exam covers more ground by covering topics like JAXB, JAXR and JAXP (SAX, DOM and TrAX). Its more well organised and covers all essentials for webservice programming and that it covers standard APIs alone (for eg, no UDDI4J here), is the most important point in its favor.

The IBM test is for developers working with websphere studio application developer 5.1 which is not the product that is up to date. IBM changed the development programm to the rational application developer(based on eclipse). Thats why all WSAD test will be dropped at the end of december. So my advise is to go for a test that is not outdated. I think IBM will offer a similar test for rational applicatiion developer soon.

WebSphere Application Server 6.1 supports UDDI 3.0. Currently, SCDJWS is still targeting on UDDI 2.0.
