Hi Java Ranchers, We all know that there are 2 prog exams now - 1.2 and 1.4. Does the "1.4" in the name of the 1.4 exam refers to :- 1) the new J2SE SDK 1.4 and it's corresponding API OR 2) it's just the version of the new exam (nothing to do with the SDK 1.4) If (1) is correct, then why there's no 1.3 exam ? If (1) is correct, then those who are taking the 1.4 exam have to really take note of the new stuff in J2SE SDK 1.4 ?
SCJP 1.4 (310-035) is the new version of the SCJP exam which contains part of the API from J2SE 1.4. The topics which are covered in this new version of exam are lsited on Sun's site under objectives. The exam will not have any questions beyond those objectives. As for SCJP 1.3 exam, I can only guess! I believe the primary reason must be the fact that J2SE 1.4 contains many new things (e.g. assert is a keyword addition to the language) and it is substantially different from J2SE 1.2 as comapared to J2SE 1.3. So.... HTH, - Manish [ October 20, 2002: Message edited by: Manish Hatwalne ]
