Hi All

Well i am not sure whether this is appropriate forum to post my query so my sincere apologies in advance . I cleared my SCJP 1.4 three years back and i have been developing web apps using J2EE(Servlets,Jsp and JavaBeans) for almost a year and half now ,my project is getting over next week and after that i have a month off so was planning to write SCWCD but looking around it seems a lot have changed in Java SE too and my certificate is already 2 versions old and soon to be 3 next year.

So what do you suggest should i go for a SCJP upgrade exam or go forward with SCWCD

SCJP1.4 , gearing up for SCWCD 5

IMHO, you should go for SCWCD instead of SCJP upgrade...
