Having a SCJP certificate typically doesn't influence your salary.
Your experience will, and your grade might.

Well,.. few months ago I got payrise, and it was slightly more (I think 3-5% more than other guys), and my boss told me that the reason is my iniciative with SCJP certification. I think there is some influence, even if it isn't immediate payrise, it makes your boss think: "Yeah, that guy works hard, he's tech. knowledge is growing, he has a goal, etc." - At least in our company there is a "pressure" on "be better" - (sounds likes star trek :-), does it?).

Why are you preparing for SCJP 1.4, why not 1.5? I do not think certification has an influence on your salary but might look good on your CV. Experience and skills are more important to influence your salary. Knowing theory is diffrent from knowing when to and how to apply it. Only experience can give you that. At one stage of my career had an option to sit for SCJP or learn emerging and sought after Java/J2EE based technologies. I decided to go with the latter and it paid off for me. Do your research based on your country of employment.
