Apparently the registration for SCJP2 filled up quickly, and they subsequently disabled the site so that no more requests could be submitted. So you're too late for the beta. As far as we can tell, there are no significant changes in the objectives - they just want to create new questions, for variety I guess. The new exam will probably appear around October. You can read more here.

,
I have been confirmed for the Sun Certified Programmer for Java 2
Platform Beta Exam.
1. I'd like to appear for the exam Sun Certified Programmer for Java 2
Platform Exam No. 310-025 IMMEDIATELY AFTER I have appeared for the above
mentioned Beta Exam.
Can I purchase a voucher for the exam 310-025 in this week ?
If yes, Will it make my Beta Exam voucher void ?
2. If I appear for the Beta exam first, and immediately appear for the "real
exam" (No. 310-025),
which score counts towards my certification ?
I ask this question becuase the results of the beta exam will be announced
only in October. Does a failure in the exam make my previous success void ?

Deepak:
As I know, this is a general forum for the programmer certification, more so predominantly technical.
So IMHO, I think you should ask these qstns to an
authorised Sun Certification Agent or Sylvan Center.
In US: Sun Education: 800-422-8020
and Sylvan: 800-795-3926.
Check that out.

I ask this question for the "GENERAL" benefit of the forum.
THanx for your 'free' advice anyway, I had already inquired from Sun , this is what I got in my reply....
I'd like to ask you the following questions :
>
> 1. I'd like to appear for the exam Sun Certified Programmer for Java 2
> Platform Exam No. 310-025 IMMEDIATELY AFTER I have appeared for the above
> mentioned Beta Exam.
> Can I purchase a voucher for the exam 310-025 in this week ?
> If yes, Will it make my Beta Exam voucher void ?
No, it will not make your beta exam voucher void. You can take the existing 025
exam until October. After October we will replace the old questions with these
new questions.
>
> 2. If I appear for the Beta exam first, and immediately appear for the "real
> exam" (No. 310-025),
> which score counts towards my certification ?

You will be certified if you pass one or both of the exams. A fail on one will
not cancel out the pass.
Regards,
Diane
