Dear All,

I would like to share with you an interview with a seasoned brazilian developer about Java 6 (Mustang)

Please pay attention to the new enhancements. Very nice interview in my point of view.

B. Rgds.
Edisandro.

Does this mean we have to start preparing for SCJP 1.6

Dear Bhavesh,

I also stayed in doubt when I heared about Java 6 (Mustang).
I also asked myself : "Should I wait for SCJP 6 ?"

About one thing I am sure : Once there are many programmers still trying to get the programmer certification for Java 1.4 and a few others looking for SCJP 5 and considering that it is still hard to find good study guides about Java 5 and that Java 6 has not released the oven to the World yet, I think that the best choice is get prepared for Java 1.4 or 5 exams.

I think we still have to wait for a few months till new Java 6 becomes a stable, full tested and trustable version.

I also think that market, I mean Factories, also will take a few months, maybe one year or more to absorve this new technology.

I wish they could slow the pace a bit
I'm not willing to update my certs every 2 years.

At this point there is no reason to assume there will be a new version of the cert. JDK 5 had so many new core language features that a new cert was warranted; I doubt this will true of 6, and maybe not even 7, or 8. JDK 5 took a long time to be released, but subsequent releases are supposed to be smaller and more frequent. Probably not worth creating a whole new test for, in my opinion.
