I am planning to get SCBCD and then SCEA. I am confusing that if I should wait until SCBCD 6 or just take the SCBCD 5.

Any suggestion of my situation?

Thanks

If your target is SCEA 5, I suggest you to proceed with SCBCD 5.

Reasons:

1. SCBCD 5 covers both topics: Disctributed transactional objects (traditional EJB) and JPA (persistence). In case "SCBCD 6" - it covers only Distributed transactional objects (traditional EJBs), for Persistence now there is a separate exam. So, you save time and money.

2. SCEA 5 was released when latest JEE version was JEE 5, so it does not requre any specific JEE 6 knowledge.

3. You can proceed without waiting for JEE 6 exams, which may be released in January 2011 (or may be delayed...)

Good luck,
MZ
