usefulness of SCBCD certification with current EJB 2.1?

Hi ,

recently i passed the SCJP exam and planning to improve my knowledge of J2EE by taking SCBCD exam.
I started the preparation for SCBCD by reading the "Mastering EJB - Ed roman" book once.

Last week, I went through the overview of new features coming in EJB 3.0 on serverside. EJB 3.0 seemed to be revolutionary
and fundamentally different from current EJB 2.1 in some ways(like Entity beans, Persistence model, using AOP ..etc). I
wondered, if the current SCBCD exam and EJB 2.1 knowledge may become obsolete once EJB 3.0 comes and almost gave up
preparation postponing it to future when the new version of exam comes with EJB 3.0 and started preparing for SCDJWS
instead.

Currently, I am not working on any J2EE technologies. But, I planned for this certification to be useful for 1-2 years down
the line.

Do you think, it is still useful to take the current version of exam? please advice me.

is anybody having an idea when EJB 3.0 is going to be officially released and after that how much time it takes for sun to
release new version of exam?

with regards,
rajesh
