Hi Gaurav, welcome to javaranch.

SCJP certificate is valid for as long as you live. Prior to SCJP 1.2, SCJP certificate was valid for 2 years, but now there is validity period of Sun/Oracle Certifications...

Validity is like a private member in a class....

As long as you application(Life) is running....you and only you can access it...but at the same time it is not inherited by your children ...



Take care
Happy Learning
Cheers!!!

I think you have to wait for my reply till i read "Reflection " topic.

But from your reply i got an intutive idea that even private members can be accessed through "reflection" scheme. Is it ???

Reflection stuff are not within the scope of SCJP - you don't need to worry about that for the exam.
