I am very much motivated by this group and registered for it. Last year i prepared for SCJP1.4 but because of some reason i was not able to appear for it. Now, SCJP1.5 has come . I have few questions: Can i still give 1.4 exam? 1.5 has come up with new API, so how difficult it would be for me to prepare for it (given the fact that i did my study for 1.4 exam).
I have set 25 days target for this exam preparation. I am week at file IO APIs and Thread concepts.
Java 5 contains a lot of new features compared to Java 1.4: generics, new for-loop syntax, autoboxing, enums, varargs, static import, annotations. So it's much more than a difference in the API. If you've never used Java 5 before then it will take you some time to learn all those new features.
