Hi, I have passed the SUN CERTIFIED PROGRAMMER FOR JAVA[tm] 2 PLATFORM exam in June 2001. I am not sure whether it was the 1.2 exam then. Anyway, I am now thinking of whether to take the SUN CERTIFIED PROGRAMMER FOR JAVA[tm] 2 PLATFORM 1.4 upgrade exam. Do many people go in for this exam? Could someone please advise me? thanx.

The difference between 1.2 and 1.4 is as follows. The 1.4 exam removes the AWT and IO topics but adds assertions and a couple new classes in the collections framework--LinkedHashMap and LinkedHashSet. The wrapper classes and the Object.hashCode and Object.equals methods are further emphasized in 1.4. Everything that you need to know about assertions is available in the document Programming with Assertions. For more information, please see the objectives for the 1.4 version of the exam.
