Though I know about it, still I want to confirm.
What is minimum requirement for SCEA part 1. I guess you atleast be "Sun Certified Programmer for Java 2". Now I gave exam for JCP'2 on Sept'2000. Am I eligible for SCEA exams now?
Thanks

You are eligible at *any* time (even if you're not java certified - SCJP).
Have a look at this link, you'll see that "prerequisites is none".

Hi Ashish,
You can tell your collegue that, while going for SCJP 1.4 certification is desirable, it is not required. You do not need it for SCEA, and his SCJP 1.2 certification has not expired. Certifications no longer expire, and if you have a card or certificate with an expiry date on it, you can get a replacement without an expiry date at no cost. See the Sun FAQ on Recertification for more details.
Sun apparently aim each certification at people who have been working with the technology for 6 or more months. So SCEA is designed for people who have been working as architects for some time. To be a good architect you need to know what the technology is capable of, but you don't necessarily have to know how to code with it (although that can help ). That is why there are no prerequisites to SCEA: no coding required.
Regards, Andrew
