OCMJEA - Enterprise Architect or Solution Architect

I would like to know how ranchers perceive OCMJEA certification as - "Solution architect" or "Enterprise Architect" certification? I am already OCMJEA certified but never paid close attention to how Oracle markets it.

Oracle says this certification is for enterprise architects but in my opinion, you can call it any type of architect certification but not "Enterprise Architect".

I can say from my company's point of view. My company has three levels of Architects namely Enterprise / Solution and Software Architects. Software Architects are the one I can closely associate with OCMJEA. Having said that it is not vastly different to Solution Architecture. Solution Architects should be aware of wider technology choices as well apart from Java alone. This is my view.

Thanks, Kali

I think neither - I'd say application architect.

I consider an Enterprise Architect to be Enterprise Architecture. Which spans languages/frameworks/platforms.
