Slightly off topic, but does anyone know when the SCBCD will be offered in mainland Europe?
The cert. is mentioned on the U.K. and Irish Sun websites, but I can't find any mention of how to get a voucher to take the exam any place close to me ... Germany, Holland, Lux etc.
It's not a language localization issue, as all the other certs (including the J2EE Architect exam) are available in English.
Anyone know the answer or can suggest who to contact in Sun Germany?

Don't know if the cert in available on Manin Land Europe as I'm in Britain, but may be you should try with the testing center. When you're booking you exam, you get to choose a center and they show you all available dates in that center for the exam (i.e : if they do not offer the exam, then, there will be no dates )

Hi Raphael,

Hmmm, good advice.
So Prometic in Frankfurt show dates for the test, but to book the test you, of course, need a voucher from Sun.
Sun Germany appear not to offer vouchers for CX-310-090 and the Sun UK site mentions that their vouchers are only valid in the UK and Ireland.
So is it a test nobody can take?

Hi Aidan,
I think (that's what I did for scpj and scjd) You need to call Sun Sale in your country to buy the voucher. They will post it to you .
Adress for Germany is : Telephone: 0049/89460082788
Germany
Sun Microsystems GmbH
Schulung
Sonnenallee 1
85551 Kirchheim - Heimstetten
Germany
Telephone: 0049/89460082788
After that (when you've got your voucher) you can book the exam at you center of choice.
Cheers,

Well, in case this is useful for anyone else, following the advice above I contacted Sun Germany by phone. A very helpful mitarbeiterin guided me to
http://de.sun.com/Schulung/Zertifizierungen/Java/index.html
the page that doesn't mention SCBCD, and told me the secret trick:
Click on the red oval marked (Priese)
Then you will be on the form that allows you to order the voucher for 310-090.
She also promissed to forward a suggestion to update the Certification page to include informatation about the SCBCD exam.
Good stuff. Thanks Sun. Thanks all.

Hi,
I've just e-mailed Dutch SUN Education ses_nl@sun.com and asked how to apply for SCBCD. The procedure is absolutely the same as application of Java Programmer exam.
You send them an e-mail with your name and postal address; they reply with the bank account number; you transfer money; they send you voucher
With regards,
Viktor
