Hi,

I am a little confused. I have done the following
- Sun Developer for the Java 2 Platform
- Sun Certified Programmer for the Java 2 Platform (1.2)

and now I plan to do SCWCD(310-084). However when I look at the Sun Certmanager, it shows that I am eligible for 310-080 and not 310-084.

I have met the pre-requisite for 310-084 though. Have sent a couple of mails to SUN but have not received any response.

Can someone explain why

Sarita

Do you mean 310-083? That is the SCWCD 5 exam. 310-084 is an upgrade exam and since you haven't sat a previous version of SCWCD, you are not eligible to take it.

You have to go through 310-083 first, 310-084 is an upgrade examination of previous one, for which you should have 310-083.

310-080 is the old v1.3 EE of the SCWCD exam. AFAIK this exam was discontinued some time ago.

It sounds like you should be fine taking 310-083 (it's the same certification, just a later version of the exam), but worth checking.

I suspect your eligibility for 310-080 was set some years ago, after you passed the SCJP and hasn't been updated by Sun since.

HTH - Rufus.

guess what i called up SUN today and they said it is because I took the SCJP in Singapore (now am in UK).. and that if i wish to do 310-083 in UK I´┐Żll have to retake my SCJP here again.....

somehow am not convinced with the reply (not sure if i was talking to the right person)..... i thought such certifications are recognised worldwide.....

do you think i should just go ahead n purchase the exam voucher for 310-083 even though the SUN Cert Mgr shows otherwise?
