SCEA5 Phase out-When?

Folks,

I'm gonna appear for SCEA5-Part I on 03/30. I'll keep you all posted on the test results.. Will tell ya why if I fail.
Here is my concern as I am getting ready to invest $775 on all three parts of SCEA.
If SCEA5 is rolled out after I complete Part III, I am cool with that.
The problem is when it happens when I am in the middle.. say after completing Part I ?
I found very little time to focus on cramming.. err studying in the last few months. It took a whole 6 months from the date I bought the voucher to the date I've scheduled the test.
I am not sure how many more months it will take to clear Part III (assuming I clear Part I)

1. Any body has any premonition on the next rollout of J2EE and the subsequent phase out of SCEA-5?
2. I am in India and I'll be travelling to the U.S.A by May'09: Would it matter if I bought the Part-II in India, but try to upload it in the U.S.A?

Thanks!
Prabu

I've mailed SUN about this scenario:
"2. I am in India and I'll be travelling to the U.S.A by May'09: Would it matter if I bought the Part-II in India, but try to upload it in the U.S.A? "
Will keep you all posted.

Thanks!
Prabu

I really dont know, but i think it has changed with J2EE to J5EE , in one year, and it has been durring five year SCEA for J2EE so its difficult changing in that way, for long, other way it may have new contents in it, since there are new versions and releases in sepecifications of J5EE.
I´m not sure at this point and could be a question in this forum.

There's no sign of SCEA for JEE 6 yet, so I think it's fair to say that it will be a good long time until it materializes, if ever. Certainly not this year (SCEA for JEE 5 was introduced only last year). Especially since JEE 6 hasn't even been finalized yet.

Thank You Ulf and Ruben. That sounds assuring..
hopefully I clear all three parts of SCEA-5 before JEE6 hits the road.
One quick question, does Sun issue a heads up say 6 months in advance before they plan to retire the existing exam versions (or) JEE5 and JEE6 versions of the exams co-exist till JEE5 gets phased out?
Unlike other exams, SCEA seems to be a long drawn affair.. especially if you find very little time besides work to prepare
