Hi Ranchers,
Is there an option where we need to just learn and attempt exam for the new features only if one is already SCJP1.4 certified?

And Rajeswari, can youu please tell what drastic change has been made that Sun jumped directly from 1.4 to 5?

You can take SCJP 5.0 Upgrade Exam.

Note that in upgrade exam the topics are same, only number of questions and passing score differ.

1.5 changes includes generic types, metadata, autoboxing, an enhanced for loop, enumerated types, static import, C style formatted input/output, variable arguments, concurrency utilities, and simpler RMI interface generation.

You can find the topic changes between SCJP 1.4 and SCJP 5.0 at
