Hi
I called the sun educational services. The exact information is Sun do not sell any more vouchers for the Architect exam. If you have a voucher you can use it till March 31.
The representative told me that Sun is revamping the architect exam. This suspension of the exam is temporary.

I heard something about how it will have more EJB in it and will revolve around J2EE.

Do we feel that is a good thing or a bad thing?

My prep. is get'g on well. This site is extremely useful. After

After yesterday's session in Broomfield (which you missed ) I can say this is a GOOD thing.

I called Sun UK and they told me that the exam has been suspended for a while due to security reasons. Anybody knows which security reasons these are? They could not tell me how long the suspension is for. Any info will help please!!

Sun is revamping the architect certification process to include a more enterprise Java-centric exam and a performance based component (a project). As Paul mentioned, it will incorporate lots of EJB (v1.1), other J2EE technologies, network protocols, security, design patterns, UML... Thankfully, most of the arcane stuff on the old exam has been minimized or eliminated.
