Hi Gayathri,

Welcome to JavaRanch!

Bert has summarized the differences in this thread.

Java 5.0 contains important, dramatic changes versus 1.4 and given the option it appears the only reason to take 1.4 is fear.

not long ago, there is a member also call gayathri. he/she passed the scjp 1.4 with high score.

if you wanna high score, go for 1.4
if you wanna study new stuff about java, go for 5.0

haha...just kidding.
