Hi all, i have been working with Java 1.4 since about 6 months and as a part of my project requirement i have been told to clear SCJP. The problem is that now Java 1.5 which is the certification exam for Java 1.5 is available and most of guys prefer it, but since i have to clear the SCJP in 1 month's time it is not possible for me to go for SCJP 1.5, instead i m confident enough to go for SCJP 1.4 as i have worked with Java 1.4 from past 6 months or so. So is there any way of upgrading or giving some test equivalent to SCJP 1.5 after clearing SCJP 1.4 instead of going for SCJP 1.5 later. And finally now when SCJP 1.5 is available is it worth it to go for SCJP 1.4 .
The SCJP 1.4 exam still holds good for most employers. The 1.5 version will kick in and take effect with time but if you really need to take the exam quickly and you have studied for the 1.4 version, then sure go for it. There is an upgrade exam offered by sun for 1.5
