Hi,
Could somebody explain to me what is the difference between
Sun Certified Programmer for Java 2 Platform Upgrade Exam (CX-310-036) and
Sun Certified Programmer for Java 2 Platform 1.4 (CX-310-035).I passed the
Sun Certified Programmer for Java 2 Platform Upgrade Exam (CX-310-036) version and I wonder will it be counted as prerequisite in order to take Sun Certified Web Component Developer for the Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition 1.4 (CX-310-081)? Thanks in advance.

Cheers,
Bulent

Hi,

The difference between:

Sun Certified Programmer for the Java 2 Platform, Standard Edition 1.4 (CX-310-035)
and
Sun Certified Programmer for the Java 2 Platform, Standard Edition 1.4 Upgrade Exam (CX-310-036)


Is that:
If you had passed earlier version of:
Sun Certified Programmer for the Java 2 Platform, say
Sun Certified Programmer for the Java 2 Platform, Standard Edition 1.2 (CX-310-025)

Then you could simply take:
Sun Certified Programmer for the Java 2 Platform, Standard Edition 1.4 Upgrade Exam (CX-310-036)

And it will upgrade your earlier version(1.2) to 1.4 (You wouldn't need to take the full scale version of the test, that is:
Sun Certified Programmer for the Java 2 Platform, Standard Edition 1.4 (CX-310-035)

In order to take the:
Sun Certified Web Component Developer for the Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition 1.4 (CX-310-081)

All you need is just pass any version (that's it, any version) of SCJP.

So, you have it.
You can look at what Sun says about it:

From Sun:
"Certification consists of one exam and requires Sun Certified Programmer for Java 2 Platform (any edition) status."

Hope this helps:
I tried to go to the website, too busy now...
