I have the SCJP 1.4 certification. I did this a while back. I'm now looking to do the SCJD exam (i am planning on purchasing the exam exam next week). Can I do it using jdk 1.5? I saw on the Sun website about java 6. Does this have in effect on using jdk 1.5 to do the SCJD exam?
Is JDK 5.0 Update 15 a production version and can I use it for my submittion in this year (before 2009)?

I got it from John:
I wrote Sun with this very question, because I found the 18 months thing very confusing.
Below is the main answer I got:
"While certification exams, such as the SCJP 1.4 and SCJP 5.0, are designed to test for specific versions of Java, the SCJD assignment is designed to be completed using a current version of Java. You may actually use either Java SE 5.0 or 6.0 for the SCJD assignment.. Java SE 6.0 was released December 11, 2006, so Java SE 5.0 may be used for the SCJD assignment until June 11, 2008."
