I was going through SCJA syllabus and found that it is majorly based on Java 5. will it majorly include java5 additions eg Enumerations.

What should one concentrate on, depth of Java5 or overall syllabus which includes JMS, JNDI, SMTP, JAX-RPC, Web Services (including SOAP, UDDI, WSDL, and XML), and JavaMail as well

The J2SE part might be focus on Tiger as you can see there are some Tiger features in the exam objectives.

However, since J2EE and J2ME are still based on J2SE 1.4, no Tiger features should be included.
