Hi,
The last time I heard is that SUN is coming up with a new certification format for
SCEA soon. Anyone know how true it is?
I'm thinking of buying the voucher for SCEA but at the same time I'm worried the new
format might just come out then.
Any advises? Thanks.

Hi, in the news thread ProfessionalCertification > DeveloperCertification > Topic:
Is the Developer Certification only valid for 2 yrs?
by Saumendra Poddar, posted January 04, 2003 09:59 PM,
the author posted the link
http://suned.sun.com/US/certification/register/recertification.html
that notes:
"Recertification Policy:
Unless otherwise stated, and beginning with all Sun Certification exams taken after September 1, 2002, certification offerings from Sun are valid for two (2) years from the date of certification. The certification date will appear on both a certificate and an identification card with the applicable certification title. The identification card will also include an expiration date, on which an IT professional's Sun certification status expires. ..."
and:
"The Recertification Process:
... Recertification exams presently cost $100 US per exam. Sun reserves the right to modify this fee at any time and for any reason, ..."
Furthermore I have read the EnterpriseArchitect exam will change from EJB spec 1.1 to 2.0, "sometime in spring 2003". See in this forum thread:

In which way will this mark all 1.1 examinas as "out-dated" if not upgraded by a recertification?
If I will pass part I (allready paid) with current EJB 1.1, can I finish with EJB 2.0 and avoid paying the upgrade fee?
I think by Sun this should be announced to the "community" earlier.
For many freelancers (and others) the certification is an investment too, so at the time one buys the voucher one must be shure what certification he will get for that, how long it is valid etc. .
