I passed the Java 2 programmers exam in Feb 2002. I'm still confused on how long I have before 'that' one expires before I am no longer able to try and take the Web Component exam?
Next question is, if the latest SCWCD exam expires should I wait until a 'newer' version comes out? As it is I'm a bit pissed that I didn't wait to take the java 1.4 exam, but at the time last year no one even mentioned that the one I took would be so radically changed (for the better I might add).
Is there going to be new SCWCD exam coming out soon and if so will my programmer's certification I took in Feb be ok as a prerequisite?
Thanks,
Rick

Who cares when it officially "expires"? I've been an SCJP2 for nearly 2 years, but I will continue to put the logo on my resume, business card, etc. long after it "expires". I don't care whether I am no longer "officially" an SCJP2 anymore.

I only care if it expires from the standpoint of whether it's expiration means I am ineligible to go for the SWCD cert. I thought if my SCJP2 cert expired then I couldn't try for the SCWCD ?

Actually, I never thought of that when I made my last response, but was thinking about that later in the day. Oh well, I got SCJP2 in June 2001, so I guess I have 6 months.

Here is how I feel about it:
How useful the cert is to employer is still unknow. Now you want to know how useful scjp 1.4 is over scjp 1.2 to employer? :roll:
