I am preparing for scwcd 5 and i think it will take couple of months for me to prepare and take up the exam. And now that we are expecting SCWCD6 in 2 -4 months i am in confused state about which exam to write.
Actually i want to know even if the new exam comes up how different it could be in terms of syllabus .
Like in scjp 5 and scjp 6, there was not much difference... only 4-5 hours of extra learning time for scjp6.
So will it be a similar case here too??

Are we? Servlet API 3 has some substantial changes (asynchronous processing, use of annotations) - I wouldn't expect a new version of the exam this year. Do you have inside information (or informed speculation) on this?
No .. i don't have any information about SCWCD6 exam...
i asked this question because some thread in this forum talks about the upcoming SCWCD exam because of some change in the specs ...
Any more information ???
I wouldn't worry about when the Java EE 6 versions of exams are going to be due. For starters, there will be a few months from when the betas are announced (or, frankly, the requests for SMEs to weight the priorities for the test) until when they're available generally. Further, I don't believe that any of the application servers besides Glassfish are Java EE 6 compliant - the test really won't be valuable until there's a market for 6-specific software development. Worry more about 5 - for which there's plenty of servers - and you can prep for 6 when they start announcing it.
