Should I study for and take SCBCD 1.3 or wait for 1.4?

Hello,

I just passed SCWCD 1.4 and am considering my options. I'd like to become SCBCD, but I'm not sure if it make sense with EJB 3.0 nearing the final specs stage. I passed SCJP 1.4 last November and, very soon after, SCJP 5.0 was made available, so now I need to pay $100 to upgrade (or convince my employer that the upgrade is worth it!) I don't know if I want to be in the same situation with SCBCD.

I'd appreciate any advice.

Thank you,
Yuriy

Hmm, all right. Seems EJB 3.0 will most likely be in the 5.0 version of the exam. What about SCBCD 1.4 - EJB 2.1? Is there any news on if there will be an SCBCD 1.4 for EJB 2.1, or if it will just jump straight to SCBCD 5.0?

Thank you,
Yuriy

Hi,

I posed the same question a few days ago: EJB 3.0 is too far away to consider a wait, and EJB 2.1 added too few things to be worth an upgrade in the Sun exam. So we'll have SCBCD 1.3 until EJB 3.0 settles in and then a major upgrade to SCBCD 1.5 or 5.0 or what have you


Mihai.

Ok, cool, I guess I'll be studying for SCBCD 1.3 then.

Thanks!

Kathy, the exam coordinator, has confirmed that there will be NO SCBCD upgrade for EJB 2.1.
