Who writes the objectives and the questions for the SCJP Exams?

I just realised, I don't actually know who decides what's in the objectives and who writes the exam questions for the SCJP and other certs.

Is it a Sun thing? Or is there some community element?

(Sorry - not directly related to passing the SCJP, but there isn't a forum for meta-questions about the certification that I can see - please move as appropriate!)

I am pretty sure it is some one at sun, since they are the guys that want you to learn the technology. They do collaborate with experts to decide the topics / objectives. I remember a collaborative effort to try and define the scope of the SCEA certification with other architects around the world

Hey Paul,

Sun puts together a custom team for each exam. Typically the exam development team consists of about a dozen Java experts; some are Sun engineers, some are Java developers, and some are Java instructors.

hth,
