Hi Marti'n,
I am just curious like you. Web certification is going to be updated to JSP 2.0 and servelt 2.4 in some months. EJB certification deals with EJB version 2.0, and would be updated to 2.1 in a year or so. Today seams to be a natural path to take EJB certification before the SCEA one, however, you must go back to EJB VERSION 1.1 for the SCEA!
Although SCEA deals with architectural things like UML, patterns, security, layers, scalability, etc, it is actually based on J2EE technology, but based on the old version 1.2, and many things have changed since that version.
I am also worried about that. It seams that SCEA froze. Somebody happen to know if there is someone at Sun thinking to work in the update of objectives to J2EE 1.3 (or 1.4)?

I dont think it will be update soon.. I had emailed Evelyn regarding this and got the reply that She doesn't have a date for the new version.. I guess it is going to take some time.
