Usually there are just one Architect and a dozen of Developers working together in a mid-size project. And the architect makes more $$$ than anyone of the developers does. So I believe SCJEA is better. IMHO, jCert's VCSD and VCED might lead you to be an SCJEA gradually. I just became an IBM Certified Solution Developer this afternoon!
