Is the exam for Java Developer affected by newer version of Java?
I dont have any idea of the exam, I know its not enumeration test. But will the version matters in the questions? Thanks a lot.

enumeration test
In one of the posts by Kathy(cannot remember in which forum it was), She mentioned that Sun might come out with SCJP1.5 first and then may change the SCJD. So I am not sure if SCJD would change this year.

YES. The instruction said:

Throughout this exercise, you must use exclusively the Java 2 platform. You may develop your code using any implementation of the Java 2 platform, but the submission that you return must have been tested and shown to work under a production (not development) version of the Sun Microsystems' Java 2 platform and that platform must not have been superseded by a new production version for more than 18 months by the time you make your submission.

Thus, when you use, say, J2SE 1.4.2 for the assignment, and submit it on, say, 30 Jan 2007. At that time, if J2SE 1.5 is released more than 18 months, you cannot submit it, as your JDK version is too *old*.
Be careful abot this issue.

Currently J2SE 1.5 (Tiger) is in beta (beta 1 release)...I guess, this may be in beta for around 6 months.
