check out the details of the SCWCD exam: CX-310-080
You'll notice it says "Prerequisites: Sun Certified Programmer for the Java 2 Platform (any version) status."
As for the expiration of your SCPJ certification... check out the SUN Recertification Policy
"How long is my certification title valid?
Unless otherwise stated, and beginning with all Sun Certification exams taken after September 1, 2002, certification offerings from Sun Services are valid for two (2) years from the date of certification. Despite the two-year validity date, Sun does not presently plan to revoke certification titles already held by a professional if the validity date of a specific certification has passed. The validity date serves as a flag for certificate holders to plan their professional growth, and for Sun to communicate with the holders about opportunities to recertify efficiently and cost effectively. Sun may maintain multiple versions of any certification 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.
"
Hope that helps to answer your questions! Good luck with your SCWCD exam.
