hi i was planning to take scjp 5 in july-august. But with the release of java 6.0 I will be more interested in taking 6.0 exam than 5.0 I know there is always an option of upgrading but with the kind of money and effort involved in taking cert exam, it would be better to attempt 6.0 Can anyone please tell me ( or have any idea) when SUN would start adminstering the 6.0 exam
It takes couple of years for a new exam version to arrive. It also depends on other factors such as Technology penetration in addition to Sun's own plans. I don't expect SCJP 6.0 to arrive within a year. Even Bert may not know .
If you are keen in taking Java Programmer certification, SCJP 5.0 is the right exam for you.
