SCWCD will change?

I read here (think two or three mounths ago) that the SCWCD will change the requirements and the requisits in March 2003.
Maybe one of you (and close to Sun) guys could tell me if this really will happen.
I've already tried to call Sun but they tell me nothing about, instead they almost "force" me to take the exam.
I will not take it if i'll have to do it again 2 mounths ahead 'cause the certification change. I think is "good" enough if i have to update my certification 2-by-2 years.
thanks in advise

In Microsoft exams, if they want to retire some exams, they will let you know at least 1 year ahead. I am sure Sun will be decent as well.

when the SCPJ 1.4 test was released -- we had a good notice that it was coming out... the 1.2 exam is still available to those who want to take it. I'm sure the same kinda thing will happen if they change the SCWCD exam. I haven't heard anything in that direction though.

Where did you read about the exam change? I'd be interested in seeing it.
