Hello, I�m planning to start studying for the SCJP 1.4 exam this December, but J2SE 5.0 was recently released�..will java discontinue the cert for 1.4 when 5.0 exams became available? Do you think it�s still worth the time to study for the SCJP 1.4 exam? Thanks,

The new exam won't be available until the Spring of 2005, and the old exam will be around for a long time (at least six months - probably longer), even after the new exam is available.

Spot false dilemmas now, ask me how!
