Hi folks,
What is this version 1.2 and version 1.4 of the certification that some of you are talking about?
I took my part I in Feb 2002 and am planning to get part II & III done by the end of the year.
Is my part I going to be valid for the certification?
I was referring to this post.....

Thanks in advance

Nowadays the exam is based on Java 2 platform 1.2. Sometime next year a new version of the exam will be released ( search the posts, someone had some e-mail from Sun on this matter ) and will require Java 2 platform 1.4. So probably for a period of time the two versions might co-exist, but if someone passed the first part of the 1.2 exam, it won't be allowed to continue with the 1.4 version of assignement and third exam, it will have to finish the 1.2 version. Again, see an e-mail anwser in http://www.coderanch.com/t/150743/java-Architect-SCEA/certification/Part-SCEA-does-NOT-qualify
All this is related to the new recertification policy of Sun http://suned.sun.com/US/certification/faq/#recert
Hope it helps,
Billy
