Whenever anyone asks this question, I tend to give the answer of, "it all depends on what you're interested in working on."
Okay, yes, for instance I have a lot of certifications - I'm something of a jack-of-all-trades around the office, so I've had the time to get experience with all sorts of things. (Though I'd admit that the SCMAD was more my own interest than anything we're ever going to work on, as far as I see in the foreseeable future.) But certifications shouldn't be the driving factor of what you learn next - how it's applicable to what you want to be doing should be more the direction you go.
Still, recommendations after SCBCD. I think it depends on if you're intending to work in an environment that's more web application based (SCWCD) or web-services based (SCDJWS). Or perhaps you're contemplating more an architect's role in the organization rather than a developer's (SCEA). Finally, if the firm you work for, or the companies you're looking at working for, use a specific technology such as WebSphere are WebLogic, you might look into the individual company's certification plans.
Just my thoughts.

SCJP/SCSNI/SCBCD/SCWCD/SCDJWS/SCMAD/SCEA/MCTS/MCPD... and so many more letters than you can shake a stick at!
yes, I am mainly aspiring to become an architect. But what I feel that it is still long way to go as I just completed 1 year in IT industry. So what I would like to know from you people as to apart from SUN Certification which one should I go for as per the future market trends ?
Should I go for XML, or Websphere, or Web services ?
Please help me out, as only experinced people can help me in taking decision.
