Hi,
I have the older Simon Robert book. I would like to know if the newer edition is needed for the revised SCJP2 exam. What are the differences?
Also, is the SCJP2 exam tested on the java specification or some other book? I have read somewhere that Sun's JDK is not 100% compatile with Java specification but jikes is. Is this true?
Thanks
Faisal

If you have the RHE for Java 1.1 then u may need to buy another good book, but the earlier version of the RHE for JAVA 2 is OK.

Also, is the SCJP2 exam tested on the java specification or some other book?

AFAIK, Jikes is 100% JLS compliant.
Saumil,
Jikes is a Java compiler from IBM. for more info go to: http://www10.software.ibm.com/developerworks/opensource/jikes/project/

I have Robert and Heller's Java 2 Certification Exam guide but the older one published in 1999. In October 2000 they published the 2nd edition of the same book which comes with searchable electronic version of the whole book.
So, I was asking if the new R&H reflects the newer SCJP2?
Thank you all,
Faisal
