Hi All,
I recollect that when sun had launched J2SE 1.4 beta, they also had a free certification for the beta version for a limited uration to analyse the test takers response and come up with the actual test. Anybody aware if they have similar offer for J2SE 1.5 beta ??
Thanks in Advance,
Yogesh

I have heard of no such thing and I doubt they would do such a thing. In general, between each edition of the exam, there are a number of versions of Java that come and go - Java 1.3 never had an exam specifically for it. It seems as if Sun just finished getting the 1.4 exam in place and I imagine it will be some time until they're ready to make a new version of that exam.
Of course, I don't work for Sun and I don't help with the exams, so I can only tell you what I think and what I've heard. I've heard nothing, so this is just what I think.

I agree with Corey
Sun is currently launching two new certification exams (Web services developer (SCWSD) and mobile application developer (SCMAD)). They have also just upgraded the web component developer exam (SCWCD) and from what I know the upgrade for the architect exam will take place by Q4/2004.
Regarding what precedes, I think that a new upgrade for the SCJP exam is not a priority for Sun right now. Besides, Java 1.5 will have to be used and tested by industry and academic people for a while before planning an upgrade. What is the value of a certification on a given technology if that technology has not already proven its benefits? The migration curve for Java 1.5 will be longer than for previous versions due to the amount of novelties that have been wrapped in there
I hope this helps.

isn't it a bit fast to release scjp 1.5.
I hope they dont release it for another year, maybe end of next year.
