I noticed on Sun's web site that they just released the Java SE 5.0 exam... I am thinking about going for some more Sun exams, and what has kept me from doing so is that a lot of the exams do not cover the latest technologies.

The exams that do cover the lastest are:

1. The web services exam
3. SCJP 5.0

The other ones such as SCBCD (only covers EJB 2.0, EJB 3.0 is going to be the new standard), SCWCD, and SCJD seem to only cover older specifications.

I know that acquiring these certifications helps one with improving his / her skill sets but what I am wondering is if I became SCBCD or SCWCD, would I have to recertify myself in six months?

Does anyone know if any of the following exams (SCWCD, SCBCD, and SCJD) will be updated and when?

With thanks!

The SCWCD is quite new (I prepare that at the moment), the 1.4 relates to the J2EE version, not the J2SE. I just took the SCJD, even though I heard that it is going to be updated, the exam itself is quite independent of the J2SE version. I used J2SE 5.0 to implement the assignment.
You are right about SCBCD.
