Know what would get in the door with us?  Load up Tomcat at home (bonus 
points for knowing that there's stuff like Jetty out there) and get some 
personal projects going.  We like hearing that you're interested enough 
in the topic that it is a personal passion and not just a "Where's the 
paycheck" resume building skill.  Motivation and energy count for alot in
my book.  Not cramming and faking it long enough to get the certificate 
and then forgetting everything you learned like we all did in high school.

A fun experiment to me would be finding somebody that passed the cert exam 
a few months ago and then giving them the test again to see if they 
remembered half of what they were tested on :).
