Is there going to be a new version of this exam in recent future? Should I wait for it? Is it advisable to take the exam parts in the next one year? Please advice.

Keerthi,

I suggest you to go for the current one.
This question has been posted for about 1-2 years but no news yet regarding the beta version.

And you can foresee that the next SUN Java new exam is SCJA v1.0, but not SCEA for J2EE 1.4.

Hi,

what does SCJA stand for (guess, Sun Certified J2EE Architect)
and where is the difference to SCEA?

SCJA - Sun Cirtified Java Associates

It is not at all related to SCEA . In fact it is an entry level exam .

But the previous version of SCEA is called SCJA i.e. Sun Certified Java Architect. Maybe Sun has "expired" this title. It is quite confused for both titles. One is very respected and another is very questionable.

To solve this problem, you just quote the full name instead of the short name in your CV. That will be fine, isnt it?
