JDK 2 platform for java cert, vs J2EE platform

hello all,
At first this might not seem like a java cert question, but it is related. I have studying java/writing code/using JDK 1.2 in preparation for the test, as well as interviewing for java positions in the area. I thought having some java experience (and then getting this cert) would certainly put me in the driver's seat in finding a great java dev job. However, some recruiters are telling me that now that java is not enough, employers now want to see experience w/ Sun's J2EE (Enterprise Edition) development platform, and experience w/ EJB.
Could some experienced people fill me in on the truth here? Is this the case, or are these recruiters being just a little picky? Also, I've read up on javabeans- basically they're a certain type of a java class, but the methods, var's need to implemented a certain way, in order for the bean to be used in, say, a JSP. What separates an EJB from a regular bean?
Thnx for your help, guys!
