What is the difference between certification(SCJP) java 1.4 and java 5 ? I noticed there is a new certification on java 5. Which one should I take.

Thank you.

SCJP 5 covers some of the new features in Java 5.0 that the SCJP 1.4 doesn't cover.

Where can I obtain the syllabus for java 5. The book that I saw all refers to java 1.4. Is there any website that can explain the additional things in java 5 syllabus. If I read up on java 1.4 only, can I pass java 5 ?

Thanks again.
