Am new to this forum/site, but everybody told me it was great and a big help towards certification, so here I am.
I would like to do the developer certification (am already a Java 1.2 certified programmer), but I would prefer waiting for the exam to be updated to Java 1.5.
Does anybody have any information concerning when this might happen?
I plan on doing the programmer exam which upgrades my 1.2 to 1.5, since a lot has happened in between.
I guess the exact version of Java is important for the programmer certification, but less important for the developer certification. What are people's feelings about this?
I don't want to wait months and months with this, I am motivated right now and I need to capitalise before it fades. :-)
Thanks for any information/comments,
Good point about SUN releasing SCEA 1.4 before SCJD 1.5 ... I guess that's a good argument for signing up for SCJD 1.4, I don't want to wait months and months... I have time and am motivated now, I might not in 6 months...
Do they offer upgrade exams for the developer certification? It is easily done for the programmer certification (just ask some questions concerning whatever changed), but I don't see how they would go about upgrading your developer certification. Does this mean I'd have to do the SCJD all over again for 1.5? I probably wouldn't.
Actually, does anybody know if I can do the SCJD 1.4 if I am only SCJP 1.2? I would like to get cracking on the developer certification, I want to wait for the SCJP 1.2 -> 1.5 upgrade exam to be available.
Thanks a lot for your input!
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a production (not development) version of the Sun Microsystems' Java 2 platform and that platform must not have been superseded by a new production version for more than 18 months by the time you make your submission.
Since Java 1.5 is still Java 2, I am solving my assignment using 1.5.
