I plan to take the 310-055 certification when it is released (not beta).
My 310-035 certification has expired (> 2 years ago).
Will I need a full certification voucher or an upgrade?
Also, any update on the expected time for the exam going live?
I noticed the beta ends February 13.

Cheers.

No, you just need to wait for an upgrade exam.

Usually, 3-6 months after the beta concluded.

Sun had changed its policy. Certifications no longer expire.

Excellent.
Does this apply only to new certifications?
What if I went and did SCJP 1.4 today - does it have a 2 year expiry?

I asked Sun about that before I took 1.4 SCJP. It doesn't expire.

Also those already having an expiry date on their certificate/card can request a new one without a date. Somewhere in this forum it's discussed and a link provided to Sun's exchange policy.

Excellent, thanks.
For anyone searching the forum, the appropriate URL is http://suned.sun.com/US/certification/faq/#recert
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
