I have passed SCJP and SCJD, now will be preparing for SCEA, but I don't know how long the validity period is, and how can I do if the certificate expired?

best regards
Along

You are certified for a particular version of the technology. Just because there is a new one your old certification doesn't get expired, it just becomes outdated.

Thats right. Once you're certified for SCJP version 1.4, you're always certified for SCJP version 1.4. They're working on the principal that when everyone in the industry has moved on to say, version 6.9, you're going to take the certification again at the newer version so you don't look too outdated.

Thanks your reply!

Well, assuming I had passed SCJD1.4 two years ago, and Sun release SCJD1.5 certificate now, how do I do? if I must take exam again? or just take an update exam?
