I wonder if anyone has idea (better - official information) what is going on with SCEA exam?
Since Sun announced beta exam, I guess that after beta a 'new official' will be out. Does anyone have a clue weather that will be new Exam (new exam number, new title - like scea 1.4) or Sun will only change exam objectives in current exam?
I'm in the middle of process right now. I'm worried that I'll have to upgrade, if I pass existing exam before the new one is out?
Thanks, Milan

It is a new exam with a new number. Similar to the difference between SCJP 1.2 and SCJP 1.4.
BTW, the SCEA 1.4 Beta has been postponed. No news on when it will be rescheduled...

Well there goes my plans I guess. I signed up for the SCEA beta and I'm surely not going to pay real money to take the old version only to have to do the refresher in 6 months time....
