Hi there,

I've just surfed the java-site and have seen that there is a beta of "Mustang", Sun's new Java version 6.0.

I hope there won't be another SCJP for that then, because I'm heavily preparing for the "Tiger" exam.

Regards,
Stefan

I don't think so. Mustang don't have much features added (compare to Tiger), and many added features is about swing but SCJP don't have swing topic in exam objectives.

an scjp for mustang WILL come - but not for a long time (at LEAST a year), and then it will probably be just an update, not a whole new exam - scjp 5 will be viable for several years minimum - absolutely no need to panic

hey stefan
this will clear your question on Name of java
Actually JAVA is a cofy name in USA.
While all the Developers in Meeting to name language named OAK
(previous name of java) they were drinking a coffee JAVA.
that time they decided to name JAVA.given the coffee symbol.
do you need to know why they named OAK previously.

find it.

You don't need to know this for the exam but just for the record, the name came from an Oak tree outside of Gosling's window, I believe when he created the language.

yes, and according to what I heard, they moved away from "oak" because there already existed a language with this name (these are the kind of unnecessary information that accumulate in one's head and kick out the data that would have been useful for passing the exam )
