Does anyone know when the Java EE 5 certifications are coming out?

Kindest regards,

Java EE 5 hasn't been officially released yet has it? Official word is that serious work on the exams will not begin until the finalisation and release of the platform... after which only SCBCD will be re-written. SCWCD is remaining in the J2EE 1.4 edition, simply because there are no major updates for which new certification would be sensible or feasible (the largest update is the addition of JavaServer Faces, but that's too big to test as part of the SCWCD, and since it isn't really 'core' an exam of its own probably isn't merited).

So if you're looking for SCWCD certification, there won't be a new exam for a few years (possibly until the next release of Java EE)... if you're looking at SCBCD, I would think the end of the year (or early next year) would be a good bet.

Perhaps you should ask that question in the appropriate forum. You're likely to get a better answer there.

To target the SCWCD specifically, this question gets asked and answered a lot around here and I suspect it will only become all the more frequented with time.

So I've added this question to the ScwcdFaq. Enjoy.

Hi Unnsse,

Perhaps this can help.

Bert says that SCWCD 1.5 exam might be available at least 2 years away.

You also have to consider that even if Sun comes up with this new SCWCD 1.5 version within 2 years for example, the study material, I mean, good books focused on certification objectives, will not be ready for a long time.
