Hi Java Ranchers,
I am preparing for SCJP.
I do not know whether to take 1.5 or 1.6.
But I feel comfortable to take 1.5.
should I have to take SCJP 1.6 to take exams like SCWCD,SCBCD in future or Is SCJP 1.5 enough???
To achieve this certification, candidates must successfully complete one exam. Prior to attempting certification, candidates must be certified as a Sun Certified Programmer (SCJP), any edition.
It does not say that your SCJP certificate must be less than 3 years old. Also, Sun's certification pages do not mention anywhere that any of the certificates expires after a certain time. Your SCJP certificate never expires.
Aha, I didn't know that. I did my SCJP in May 2001 (long ago, SCJP 1.2!), and my certificate does not have an expiration date. After looking at the FAQ, maybe they had expiration dates only between September 2002 and August 2003?
