Considering Java certification

As one of my new year resolutions I promised myself that I'd get some sort of technical certification this year. Basically what I'm interested in is the Java Programmer Certification, Web Component Developer Certification and Enterprise Architect Certification. For the three certifications I've found the following prep literature:

  • SCJP Sun Certified Programmer for Java 5 Study Guide (Exam 310-055): Study Guide Exam 310-055 (Certification Press) - Link
  • Sun Certified Web Component Developer Study Guide (Exam 310-081) - Link
  • Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for Java EE Study Guide (Exam 310-051): Study Guide Exam 310-051 (Certification Press) - Link

On the project management side I'm considering the Scrum Master Certification or Prince 2 Certification.

Any recommendation?

What you do, stay away from the "Head First" certification preparation books. Full of errors and typos, lack information etc. etc.
For my certifications, I relied heavily on the topics list from Sun and appropriate specification documents (like Servlet and JSP specifications for the SCWCD exam).
Good luck!

Demand for IT professionals is at an all-time high. Java technologists are taking an ever-increasing share of the rapidly growing IT job market. Think about that-not only is there new demand for Java programming and architects from the fast-paced growth of the industry, but Java is taking market share away from existing programming language technologies, such as Cobol, Visual Basic, C. A Java/J2EE certification opens the door for job interviews by enhancing credibility among hiring managers..
