I am a web architecture developer for the last 2 years. I have worked on 3-tier applications based on J2EE. None of the projects have been complex. I was planning to do the SCJEA.

Would this aid me as a web architect?

Does it have a industry value?

Is something more scpecific recommended like "Orcale cert for Java deb" or some cert for IBM Websphere?

SCEA sounds pretty ok. You could also consider the SCWCD certification.

In principle, certifications don't teach - they are a proof of what you have learned already when you step into the certification process. In the end, it really doesn't matter whether you are learning the stuff on the way as long as you get to the finish line and pass it.

Traditionally IBM certifications have been more appreciated, I think, but nowadays IBM doesn't seem to have too many certifications for Java. Anyway, all certifications by the major vendors (Sun, IBM, Oracle, BEA) do have a certain industry value - when you apply for a position.
