I find this certification interesting, but would like to seek some advice from SCEAs.

In my domain of work, it is unlikely I will ever use JavaBeans. Given that and the fact that SCEA is weighted in favour of JavaBeans, what is the value in getting this certification? I can see UML, Design Patterns and the exercise of architecting a system as being interesting.

Would the IBM Architect certification come anywhere close to SCEA?

Could you please post your thoughts?
I agree. Here's the link:
