Hello!
I have taken SCJP for Java2 and cleared on septemper 22, 2000. Now I want to take SCWCD exam. I think the requirement for SCWCD is .. you have to be a SCJP first.. also I heard that SUN has changed its policy that all certifications will expire after 2 years..does this mean I have to take SCJP one more time (meaning my earlier PASS in SCJP is expired)before I go for SCWCD?
Please clarify..
Thanks in advance
Thanks
Ram

You need to read Sun's FAQ. http://suned.sun.com/US/certification/faq/#recert
But, in short to answer your question:

How long is my certification title "good"?
Unless otherwise stated, and beginning with all Sun Certification exams taken after September 1, 2002, certification offerings from Sun are valid for two (2) years from the date of certification. The certification date will appear on both a certificate and an identification card with the applicable certification title. The identification card will also include an expiration date, on which an IT professional's Sun certification status expires. Sun may maintain multiple versions of any certification exam or title to meet varying global demand for title versions and to offer IT professionals flexible certification options. Sun reserves the right to retire specific Sun certification exams or titles for any reason and at any time. Sun's recertification policy and program are subject to change without notice.


So, in other words, your certification is still good.
