Has anyone heard any word from Sun regarding the formalization of the 1.4 exam?

I know they just recently got done with the beta testing for 1.4 and I'm not sure but I dont think many people have gotten their results back yet. I would expect another couple of months at least before they announce anything and even then it'd probably be to say that they are going to change it in a few months.
All in all it'll probably be at least another 4 months before it actaully changes and I would exect more like 6 months.
Of course, now that I've gone and opened my mouth, it'll change tomorrow.

I contacted my Sun educational services regional office, asking them about the proposed date of starting the new exam... got this email from them...
" We will be updating our Java Programmer exam in July of 2002. However, we have
yet to set a specific date. We will be posting this information on our website
once the Java Beta exam is completed. "
it would be some shock if i went to take the exam in July to find out that objectives have changed... thats why am takin the exam on the 30th of June

Well folks, thanks for posting this, now.
I schedule my exam date on July 17th.
I am going to call Sun and find out just what the H E double hocky stick am I taking when I set my confused butt down.
If its the new version (which I'll promptly walk out on ) I'll let you guys know.

I called Sun Education and ask them would I be taking the newer version of the exam or would I be taking the current version. I was told that the newer version was not released yet, and that I won't be taking the newer version when I take my exam on July 17th. I don't know what that means.

I have pawed SUN's webpage and there will be 2 Programmers exams 310-025 and 310-035(JAVA 4 available in August), they will be running each together for now. I am not sure for how long though, I will need to speed up on my revision now. The SCJP4 exams does not include AWT and I/O - maybe I'd rather take the SCJP2 exams even though I used to think I hated I/O!
Goodluck all- I hope that by the time I am ready for my exams the SCJP2 is still running as I have only completed 30 percent of my revision so far!
