Hmmm I can't understand anything of what you wrote . Also on Sun's page I see no info about new version of SCWCD exam. Maybe you know the time of announcing the new exam version? I am very suprised that Sun announced new version of SCJP (6) (which is really nothing new in case of objectives - some subtle differences) but nothing about SCWCD 5.
There no are official information, on CertManager (http://www.certmanager.net/sun), link to Certification Progress, the new version is already listed, though. If you have a netId on CertManager, make your login and see that.

How so? SCWCD 5 won't make anything from SCWCD 1.4 obsolete. Any studying you do for 1.4 will be perfectly valid for either exam. Don't give yourself an excuse to be lazy!
Jothi, yes, you would be able to take a beta if there is one. I plan on sitting for it myself and I already have two versions of SCWCD under my belt. Again, that could still be months and months from now... assuming the SCWCD 5 ever truly comes to fruition.

More than that, how much would you care to wager that the 5 objectives are identical to those of the 1.4 exam?
Good news is all current exam study material would still apply - bad news is that I have no idea how employers will view exams with identical objectives and different names. Bad news for publishers is that the titles on current books will be wrong (like mine, which says SCWCD 1.4!). That all seems like a very confusing state of affairs!
Not sure if there will be a Beta or not... it's tipped there will be no objective changes and Sun have been putting additional questions in the real exams recently (as many on the Ranch have commented: they have received additional unmarked questions in their exams), presumably to gauge the quality of new questions. Both suggest the prolonged process of a Beta might not be necessary.

I think that this is because the new version isn't official yet. So nobody can't be able to make it.
