Is it true that ICED is going to be removed this year? If so, what will be a simlar cert to take? Any OOAD in the picture?

ICED v6 has been removed from IBM schedule. There will be no ICED after 2006. Bad or good news ?

Actually, ICED should have nothing to do with OOAD as most of its content is Java and WSAD related topics.

Might be it is better to diversify the certificates into more specific one.
