old versus new exam

I read in a previous post that SCWCD 1.4 will probably come out with JSP 2.0 (March?). My question is, if I were to get certified with the current version, how useful will that certification be once the new version comes out? I have heard that the certification is good for two years, but it would seem to me that the certification loses value once there is a new version out.
Thanks
Brad

That might well have been my post. I did not mean to imply that there will be a new SCWCD version in March. What I know is this: around March, the Servlet 2.4 and JSP 2.0 specifications will be released. Somewhere in 2003, a new version of the SCWCD exam is expected.
I would expect this SCWCD update to cover some of the new Servlet & JSP features. In particular the changes in the JSP specification are very significant and will make a difference in the way you will develop JSPs.To be honest I'd also hope that the new exam would cover the JSTL, but I don't have a clue whether that is going to be the case or not.

I am hoping for feedback in regards more to the value of an old certification after the new version is out.
In a somewhat related question, is it worthwhile to take the new certification if you are already certified with the old version?
