Now have questions about 1Z0-803 Java SE 7 Programmer I vs. 1Z0-052 Administration IAs Roger indicated, these exams are completely unrelated and so can't really be compared. What concerns me in you asking about them is that you should be choosing certifications that complement either your current or desired career paths. Those two tests are along very different career paths. Are you intending to be a DBA or a Java Developer. Generally someone isn't both. I've known people who mixed PL/SQL and DBA skills (including myself), but Java developers tend to be... Java developers.
In order to pick the next certification you want to pursue, you need to decide what your career path is and pick a certification that will assist you in it. Picking certifications out of a hat, or going after them because they are 'easy' isn't really a wise decision.I was preparing an answer similar to Roger's and Matthew's ... with my usual comments satisfy your lustings, which were luckily beaten by those two posts before I got myself in trouble with Billy etc.

I work in first level support for Oracle products (7/24). We have hunderts of tickets each day. If we can't solve, we forward to second level.
I our team everybody have different know how. I am strong in Solaris and solve this ticketsGreate feedback to hear the study was worth it.
(I worked with Solaris long bevore it was an Oracle product). Because I studied SQL can now solve sometimes also Oracle SQL tickts.
But Solaris is boring for me,Beware meeting user 903312 or others
because do it so many years. I wish to learn new topics and I also wish to get certificate (because boss gives more money).Well I found 1z0-051 exam easy and solaris exams difficult ... whereas the Solaris Securty exam would be a big challenge to me. The greater percentage of topics you've already worked with on the exams the easier the exam will seem. Experience and practice can sometimes make you answer a question correctly that otherwise you would struggle with.
I was shocked that Oracle exams so complicated. Sun exams was much easier :-) For example I got Sun Certified Security Administrator
without studying and without dumps.
