Hi,
I just got my certification paper which show me I am an certified architect now. I would say thanks every one to help me this out.
But I am sad because I found that the certification will expire two years later. I went to http://suned.sun.com/US/certification/java/java_archj2ee.html again and didn't find any place say the certification will expire.
I agree the technology will be updated day by day. But if I do same job after two years by using same version J2EE platform, should I lost my certification that I already got two years ago?
Sun should put a version number in the certification instead put an expire date in the certification.

Anyway, I got it and thanks javaranch not only help me get the certification, but also let me learn a lot I didn't think in my job.
Lao Chi

I am not to happy with the expiration date thing too, I think it should be at least 3 years not 2 if they r gonna have a expiration date at all

Hi,
I just saw from the sun site that there is no expiration date to your certification title
Th FAQ says like this:
How long is my Sun certification title now valid?
As of August 1, 2003, all Sun certifications are now based on versions. There is no expiration date to your certification title. You may, however, be certified on a technology that is outdated if Sun releases a new exam associated with a new technology version. Keeping your certification current is highly recommended.
from http://suned.sun.com/US/certification/faq/
Regards,
Jaya.

It is written in FAQs on Sun Site:
If a Sun certified professional has already received a certificate and ID card with the printed expiration date, can that professional request another certificate and ID card without an expiration date?
Yes. The certified professional will need to send an email to the who2contact@sun.com alias to request a new certificate and ID card. Include your name and Prometric Candidate ID number.

Thanks everyone. I didn't read SUN FAQ so that I don't know the new policy.
I got the certification paper on Aug 4th. But which stated that from July 22nd I am SCEA. That's why I didn't get an unexpire certification paper(from Aug 1st?). Anyway, I feel much happier now.
