I finally started on java 5.0 this weekend. I know its late
I found the generics could get a little tricky. I wanted to know about the coverage of generics in the exam. I mean using java generics with Collections was fine. But it does get a little tricky when it comes to writing your own Generic class. Annotations ofcourse is of great interest to everyone. To what extent was annotations covered in the exam?
What are the other areas where the tiger cert improves upon say 1.4 cert.
Looks like there are considerable additions to threading api?

What were your general impressions ..i mean to all you guys who took the beta. Is programming in java going to be a lot different henceforth (after 1.5)?

Would it be possible for someone to highlight the important api changes/additions.

When it comes to quality , personally i found the book by khalid mughal to be the best. Any idea if they are considering a revision for scjp 5?

Annotations are not in the SCJP 5.0.

Just read the objectives, they tell you exactly what is in the exam. And if it is not listed in the objectives, then it is not on the test.
