Everything I see on these pages, in the bookstore or at java.sun.com talks about Java 1.2 exclusively. To my knowledge, the big two browsers only support 1.2 if they have a patch or plugin so the internet world at large is not necessarily 1.2 enabled. At least as far as applets are concerned, don't people still use Java 1.1 a lot? Maybe I am missing something but isn't there still some worth to knowing Java 1.1 and maybe even getting certified in it? Just curious... Mark Owens
IMO, you should go for Java 2 Cert. Where applets are concerned you're supposed to know what your audience is, and program appropriately. If in an Intranet, I'd use Java 2. If on the Web, Java 1.1 applets. Applets didn't change much from Java 1.1 to Java 2. Notice that I don't mean JApplet.
