Maybe someone can answer this - I don't understand. Why, if Java 5 has been out for over 2 years, would people even think about getting certified with the SCJP 1.4 exam? And yet we see a lot of people in this very forum asking about SCJP 1.4. Is this because people think 1.4 is easier in some way?

Well, a whole list of new features was added in Java 5 - generics, annotations, autoboxing, enums, etc. - which you'll have to learn when you do SCJP 5. On the other hand, a number of topics have been dropped from the SCJP exam (such as bit shift operators).

But really, in my opinion it indeed doesn't make much sense to do SCJP 1.4 instead of SCJP 5 if you're just starting right now.

In the real world, there are still a lot of companies who are still using Java 1.4.2, but more and more are switching to Java 5 or 6, so SCJP 1.4 is becoming more and more obsolete.
