Hi Everyone,
Could anybody tell me that what is the difference between SCJWS & IBM's
certification exams? What are the benefits of each exam?If I want to make career in web services which one is the best option or do I have to follow the both?

IBM's XML certification exams only covers technologies related to XML.
It is only one part of scdjws.

For sure, scdjws is more valuable and more difficult than IBM's XML certification.

I am preparing for scdjws now.

Hi Dennis,
Thanks for the reply. I want to ask that do I need to pass IBM's XML certifications before appearing for SCJWS?

There is no requirement for one to appear for the IBM's XML certifcation however it will definitely look better on your resume if you have that under your belt along with Sun's WebServices exam
