Hi,

I am a Java developer for 5 years and I just started preparing for SCJP for java 5.
I am not comfortable with the new things I don't need in everyday job,
and I want certification to force me to go over those thing. I hope Kathy's book and several mock exams will be enough.

I am planning to take exam in about two months, so I was wondering if Java 6 certification is in preparation and should I wait for it?

Thank you,
Katherine

None of us have heard anything about an SCJP 6 exam - it wouldn't totally surprise me if they didn't put one out as they're working on revamping other exams. (There wasn't an SCJP for 1.3 either.)

I think there are some worthwhile things in Java SE 6 that could potentially be tested on... but offhand, I think one question is also how many companies are still on Java SE 5.0. So, for the moment, I'd assume you're safe working on the exam for 5.
