Any idea when SCBCD 5.0 would be off

Hello All,

I'm planning to take on SCBCD 5.0 against OCPJBCD. However, I'll need around max 3 months to get tested, thus a bit concerned whether it will be present till that time??

Any idea or anybody's knowledge about the question would be really helpful.

Thanks,
Vishal

Unless your job demands for the SCBCD 5 certification, it is always a good idea to go for the latest certification available.

Yes that's true,

However, I understand from one of the post, here in and around this forum, that new exam is a bit awkward with the objectives, i.e. not much clear alike our sun exams, secondly the exam has divided into two different certifications, A. EJB 3.1 (OCPJBCD) and B. Persistence (other exam).

Considering this SCBCD 5.0 still has both, A and B above, inclusive.

Thus feel like going with it.

So, what is the answer to the question?

"When will SCBCD 5.0 will be off?"

I'm currently confused on what I will take, plus the fact that I will start from scratch, because I have no idea on EJB.

We are not talking completely different technologies here so if I was you I would start my 3 months preparation now using the latest EJB book (something like EJB 3.1 by O'Reilly), then when you feel you are getting close to being ready you can decide and then tailor your last month or so of study to the version you are taking. Hopefully by then you will have a better idea of what's in the exam and a mock exam simulator would have been released.

Just a note from my previous experience working in EJB and Spring projects. In both of those projects, we had a similarity and that similarity was to use JPA. So from my perspective I'd prefer the JPA certification.

Yes, I too at my work use both of them EJB and the ORM tool (Hibernate). However, giving a thought, if 5.0 exam is providing both the exams in common, Why should not one opt it? Thinking that
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
