Hello,

I've actually been waiting to take the SCEA until after Sun updates the exam, which has been rumored to be happening late this year.

My question is does anyone know if sun has recently updated the description of the second step of the SCEA? Last time I read the description of the assignment part it said you had to use J2EE 1.2. According to the new description you can use any released version.

The assignment requires that you have an in-depth understanding of the Java programming language and J2EE APIs. You can choose to use any released version of the J2EE APIs.

Can anyone confirm that the description has been updated recently?? If so, do you know when? I'm just trying to guess at the possible date for the updated version of the exam.

Thanks,
Dave

My assignment just says "The architecture must use the J2EE environment."
No version mentioned in there.

M Kruithof,

How long ago did you sign up for the exam? Was it fairly recently?

One of my biggest concerns is that the exam hasn't been updated to allow for newer versions of j2ee to be used (ejb, etc.) I'm not sure if sun is even planning on putting a version number on it, but I'd be curious to what changes from the current version to the version they are planning on releasing at the end of this year.

Does anyone know what kind of changes the newer version might include?

Thanks,
Dave
