Hi Dheeraj,

Keep in mind that in order to take some web, Java ME or any other specific java certification, you must take a basic SCJP first which is your entry point for all other java certifications.

SCJP is mandatory for all other java certifications, so, even you work with J2EE you will not be able to take any web certification before you get a SCJP certification.

Please take a look at Sun's certification chart. I think it will clear your question.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
