It's still based on the EJB 1.1 spec.
I got a recent email from Sun saying they were planning to upgrade it sometime 'in the next 12 months'.
Cheers
Gus

Hi,
I am going through EJB2.0 only. Do I need to go through EJB1.1 also?
Thanks,
Bhupath.

Hi,
I got following message on other thread

The current version seems to be having only EJB1.1 questions in the part-I exam. But I guess we can submit the part-II assignment with EJB2.0 components...
Anybody disagree?
---------------------------------------------------------------
Nobody answered this question on that thread.
Please write do we need to go through EJB 1.1 for Part I.
Thanks,
Bhupath.

Here is the recent response I got from Sun Education regarding this.
So it's EJB1.1 for now (at least for SCEA Part I).
This is an important issue for lots of the scenario based questions, where you usually have to go for Bean Managed Persistence to optimise performance and handle complex data types. However once the exam moves to EJB2.0 you will need to consider the possibility of using Container Managed Persistence, Container Managed Relationships and local bean interfaces.
