Hello Sireesha,

There is no SCJP version 2.0. The most recent version of the SCJP exam is for Java 5.

SCJP 1.4 is for Java 1.4 (the version before Java 5). I would not say that SCJP 1.4 is worthless, but obviously SCJP for Java 5 is more current.

Beware that there are a number of new features in Java 5, so if you plan to do SCJP for Java 5 instead, you will need to study those new features.

Go for SCJP 1.5. It covers things like Generics and foreach loop. In interviews you will be asked bout these.

It depends if he is working with java 1.4. then the 1.4. exam will be good, otherwise choose the 1.5. one.

I'm doing 1.4 next month too. I say go for 1.4 because it's easy and you can just pass that entry level exam then go take the more harder exams. You can always learn the things covered in 1.5 without having to take that harder test. At least with 1.4 you can be certified then go take the more advanced certs. like the Wed Component Developer (which is also 1.4 based)

@Jay & Saagar!

I suggest SCJP 5. Though 1.4 is still valid, I would suggest to go for higher version, things would have been different if you were one year back in time. Most of the concerns have started using generics in full fledge and most others Java 5 features. Still, if it is only the certification that matters, then you can go ahead.

Hmmm... sounds good, I have not done SCJD myself, and that way i can not tell you which areas will you be affected with. But still, I personally believe there are not too many topics other than generics/collections that you may want to shrink down to lower version.

Moreover, SCJP 5 is program/code focused and SCJD is development focused. You would only need to check on syntax(that would be done by compiler),i.e in SCJD you need to develop a project/assignment and submit, you can design/develop the project on with 1.4 compiler/JVM. If you are ending up in writing any Java 5 code it would be detected, this is how i see it. Still, if you are lucky we can see some SCJD guy dropping his comments down here.
