Hi,

I wanted to give the SCJP 1.4, does anyone know when it will be phased out? I'll have to make sure that I get in before that.

Thanks,
TR.

I do not beleive that SCJP 4 will be phased out soon. These are the exams they just discontinued:

Sun Certified Web Component Developer for the Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition 1.3 (CX-310-080)

Sun Certified Developer for Sun ONE Application Server 6.0 (CX-310-540)

Sun Certified Data Management Engineer (emphasis on VERITAS Volume Manager (CX-310-101)

Sun Certified Data Management Engineer (emphasis on Solstice DiskSuite Software) (CX-310-102)

Sun Certified Backup and Recovery Engineer (emphasis on VERITAS NetBackup) (CX-310-151)

Sun Certified Backup and Recovery Engineer (emphasis on (CX-310-152) Solstice Backup)

Sun Certified Storage Architect (CX-310-130)

However the SCJP is just in a Beta State and will be available from Janaury 13 - February 13, 2005. It will cost $49 USD and it will comprise 166 questions. You will have 5 hours.

Dont worried, as you could see SCJP 1.2 is still there after SCJP 1.4 has been released for around 2 years.
