Hi there!!!
I am a new java developer and I am planning to take the SCJA exam. I am going through the exam objectives ( http://www.sun.com/training/catalog/courses/CX-310-019.xml ) but they do not mention what version of Java ( 1.4 or 1.5 ) do we need to study.
Does anyone here have any idea? It is really very confusion.

thanks.

The exam tests for Core Java only, which is common to both J2SE 1.4 and 1.5. Thus, you don't have to worry about the version issue.

You should know fundamental concepts of J2SE and new features in Java 5.0.

How about the Enum datatypes? Cause 1.4 and 1.5 treat them different...

Thanks

There are some questions on the SCJA exam that use features (like enums) that are part of Tiger - so you're better off studying with Tiger.
