Is Sun Certified Java 1.1 Programmer Eligible to take this exam?
Even the representative at SUN Education is not able to answer this.

I had the same issue when I wanted to go for SCJD (Java 2) and I was (eventually) told that I needed to upgrade to SCJP (Java 2) first.
[A little silly IMHO as it's almost the same exam!]
You could try taking a look at your certification page on www.galton.com/~sun as this usually indicates if you are in a position to start a certification.
Hope that helps...

We have somebody in the company who was SCJP Java 1.1 certified and received SJCD Java 2 without the need to upgrade to SCJP Java 2.
However, my personal opinion, concerning SCWCD is that it is clearly stated that you have to be SCJP Java 2.
