Hi Vikrant,

I'd vote for the 5.0 exam:

1 - It is, for most practical purposes, a superset of what's on the 1.4 - in other words there's nothing critical on the 1.4 that isn't on the 5.0.

2 - It certifies the most current, important features of J2SE (like generics).

3 - It's broader, it proves a greater range of knowledge.

hth,

Bert
