Hello Palraj Jayaraj,

Welcome to CodeRanch!

I would like to know where did you get that information. Did anybody told you so, or is it just your judgement? Yes, JDK 5 is outdated, but the book contains much more that just code. It contains design perspectives, possible issues, their possible solutions and other things - which are not outdated (rather most of those are independent of Java version).

I didn't get what do you mean by 'I'm sure' part, but there's no such exam as SCJD now. The actual name of exam is OCMJD (which you also have mentioned in your post) and latest version for it is JSE6.

Secondly, please do not ask similar questions in two posts. You've already asked this(similar) question in another post.

Hi Anayonkar Shivalkar,
Thanks for replying.
I meant to write "I'm not sure, which is the latest version of SCJD?", but ended up saying "I'm sure, which is the latest version of SCJD?". Sorry for that.

I read in Oracle certification site that OCMJD is available for JDK 7 and assumed that JDK is outdated. Sorry, If I'm wrong. (One of assumptions).

Thanks for posting a reply

Is it so? I'm not able to find the link...

Definitely not. Generally, a JDK is considered as 'outdated', when a version >= major release + 2 of that JDK is available. E.g. since JDK 7 is available, JDK 5 and previous JDKs are considered as outdated(and hence, JDK 6 is not considered as outdated, and we still have exams for JDK 6). JDK 7 is the latest JDK available as of now, and it will be outdated when JDK 9 is released.

But that is general definition. As long as OCMJD 6 is concerned, a JDK 6.x is considered as outdated, if a JDK 6.y is available such that release dates of 6.x is more than 18 months older than 6.y. Ok, forget it, just download the latest version of JDK 6 on the day of assignment purchase (because, anyway, in 6 months you'll have to complete the assignment and essay exam).

If they have OCMJD for JDK 7, well, then that makes the situation quite interesting. I don't know what they are covering in that, but I would really like to know that.
