Hello guys,

I have a rather silly, but I hope easy to answer question:
I was wondering what is the current version of the API that is used for the SCJD certification? I seem to remember that one could take as long as need to complete the assignment as long as there was no new version of the SDK coming along. SE 1.6 is the current one and 1.7 is on the way and I have a really nice book for SE 1.5 and will probably take a long time to complete the assignment so I am just wondering what SDK version do I have to work with and how long I really have.

I was on the web site, could not find a reference to this.
TIA,
George

Here from my instructions


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a production (not development) version of the Sun Microsystems' Java 2 platform and that platform must not have been superseded by a new production version for more than 18 months by the time you make your submission.


i think you can dev on jdk5 and make sure that it can run on jre7 (in case you take long time to dev) before submission.

Hope this help

From the spec of the SCJD:
The Java platform used "must not have been superseded by a anew production version for more than 18 months by the time you make your submission".

Thank you guys, this is good. I am going to contemplate a little more and maybe take the plunge.

Best to you!

You must TEST on a new Java 2 platform (not superseded etc).

You can DEVELOP on any J2SE version.

How do I know for sure???
I passed my SCJD last month and I did it on 1.4

(All I had to do was verify that the jar works with java 6, but I compiled the jar on 1.4)...
