I bought the HF EJB book and was about to open it for SCBCD preparation when my friend said it is no use writing SCBCD now since JDK1.5 is going to change the whole look of EJBs! I am confused now. Should I write or not ? Can anyone give me a clear picture ?

Maybe Sun are writing a new exam now that JEE 5 is out, the JDK version has nothing at all to do with it.
YOU will however not be writing any exam, at most you may decide to sit it (unless you on some off chance get a job with Sun educational services and get selected to be a part of a group creating exams of course, which is unlikely).

Pardon my language which was a result of my anxiety....the gist of what I said was that SCBCD is as of now on EJB2.0 and we have EJB3.0 already which is quite different from 2.0. Hence is it of any use if we take up the certification now?

Yes, it is better to take EJB 3.0 exam
Yes SCBCD(5.0) which tests EJB3.0 knowledge is supposed to come to production by the end of feb.. Recently its beta exam happened which ended by Jan 2nd.



Hello,

The new SCBCD 5.0 (310-091) will be available end of February.

Thank you.

This is a Bert's answer for a similar question.


Both exams will be available for the forseeable future.

I think that if you want to use the exam to help you in your job hunt you should find out which version of J2EE your local companies are using. Sun envisions that many companies won't convert to EJB 3.0 for several years.

The other thing to keep in mind is that being 3.0 certified DOES NOT make you qualified to work in a 2.x EJB environment. In other words, when we made the 3.0 exam we did very little to overlap with the 2.x exam. So - both are valid, and both stand alone.

hth,

Bert


I hope this helps
