One of my friends tells me that it is possible to take the SCEA exam without taking the SCJD exam. (Without taking the SCWCD exam either)
Is this possible under current policies from suned?

hi,
yes the basic requirement is to complete programmer certification,if your SCJP you can take every other certification .. you don't have to be a scjd to take scea or scwcd .. but you have to be a scjp.

cheers,
parthi.

Actually, I understand that you no longer need the SCJP to take the SCEA.
