I have been preparing for my SCJP 5 certification and then I recently discovered that the SCJP 6 certification has been announced. Does this mean that I cannot take the SCJP 5 certification any more, but will be forced to take the SCJP 6.0 exam ? If not, is there a deadline after which the SCJP 5.0 will no longer be offered ?

you can still take SCJP 5 exam.... just because SCJP 6 has been announced does not mean you are forced to take it... deadlines are usually there for the exams do check sun.com for the deadline

It seems that Sun usually keeps at least two versions of the SCJP available at any given time, so the SCJP 5 is very likely to remain available until the release of SCJP 7 (or whatever the next version's called). In fact, the SCJP 1.4 is still available right now, and probably will continue to be available for another year or so. You're definitely not going to see the SCJP 5 go away anytime soon.

yes you can give SCJP5.0 right now it is not necessary to give 6.0 if you are not prepared for that

even after clearing 5.0 you can give upgrade exam of 6.0 which will have only 48 questions
