I cleared SCJP 1.2 in 2000.

Do I need to upgrade or is this good enough for taking SCBCD and SCWCD?

Sorry folks, for putting this query here.

Hi,
I just got this information from the Sun site.

"Prior to beginning the Sun Certified Business Component Developer program, you must be a Sun Certified Programmer for the Java platform (any edition)"
So you are eligible. Good luck for the exam.

Sounds good, but why do they have an expiration date at all then?

Certification offerings from Sun no longer have an expiration dates.
http://www.sun.com/training/certification/faq/

Beginning with all Sun certification exams taken on or after August 1, 2003, certification offerings from Sun no longer have an expiration date. Rather, certification offerings are based on a version of technology. The certification date and exam version will appear on both a certificate and an identification card with the applicable certification title.

Recertification is no longer required to maintain one's status as a certified professional. Sun certification is now directly associated with a version of technology. Nevertheless, Sun highly recommends that you remain certified at the most current technology version.

When will the Certification Policy take effect?
The new Certification Policy will take effect on August 1, 2003.

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.

In case of Sara, the certification date was in 2000. Does that mean that she/he (sorry ...) is not eligible to take the CSBCD exam unless upgrading first?

Does anybody know whom should such questions be addressed to?

Thanks,
Miki

Hi All

I had called the Sun Education Centre and confirmed that the Certification is Valid for life long.

Even the certifications taken before August 1, 2003. If yes than what is with Sun statement:

Beginning with all Sun certification exams taken on or after August 1, 2003, certification offerings from Sun no longer have an expiration date.
