Hi all, I came to know that Java 1.2 exam will no longer be administered. This has also led a few people to enquire about 1.4 exam. Now what I want to know is when an exam version is scrapped off, does it only mean that we can no longer take the exam (or) does it also mean a person nwho has completed that exam version will no be considered to be certified, in the industry (i.e. by say recruiters) or otherwise? I hope this is not the case, but still want to hear it from forum moderators and experts.
Because if that were to be true, it would mean getting certified itself may become a little useless unless you are able to upgrade to the next version as soon as the announcement about scrapping an earlier version of the exam is made. Kindly clarify my worries.
It only means that SCJP 1.2 is not offered any more by Sun. If you are SCJP 1.2 certified you will remain SCJP 1.2 certified and eligible to take any of the other Sun Java certifications which require a SCJP certification. So you can still say you are SCJP certified, but if asked for what version you must say 1.2. SCJP 1.2 is no longer available and no training organization should offer training based on it.
