Hi!
I'm a lil confused whether the SCJP2 syllabus is being revised. i checked out the certification news at http://suned.sun.com/USA/certification/news.html and they only mention about changes for the architect level exam. However there was a post here about new topics for java 1.3 and i don't have a clue whats that about. I plan on taking the exam last week of aug. Can someone please clear things out for me.
also is there someone from bombay on this forum, who is also taking the certification?
thanks
eskay

I am from Mumbai also planning to give the exam in this month.
As to your question , I also plan to take in the exam with in the next few day. As to my knowledge the new beta test exam will commence on august 8, the registration for the exam is already closed.Taking the exam in the month of August should not seem to be a problem for you considering the time for feedback and launch of the new platform 2 objectives.I would estimate a minimum of 15 days to a month's time for the refurbishment of the new syllabus to launch after the beta test trial.Also the beta test is a trial test to recieve appropriate feedback from the appearing candidates by Sun Microsystems.
Hope this encourages you for the exam.

Hi,
regarding this syllabus and pattern change for SCJP2 exam, I have enquired by contacting sun. They replied me, they are going for annual update. But not sure from when they will implement it. Also they said, if they are going for a change definitely they will put in their web page. So i think till they announce we no need to worry about this change.
you can conform this by mailing to
