What do u mean by Expired ?

There is no expirey for any certification . With each new version of Java, Certification exams too gets updated.

of course You are allowed to take web component exam, and the expiry date is an old policy for Sun. but now there is no expiry date for any exam you take, you can email them and they will send to you a new package that does not mention the expiry date (thats what my friend told me because he faced similar situation)

You can ask for a new certificate from Sun without any expiry date. I also asked for a new one without any expiry date and got the same. I also passed around June 2003.
