Hi

My team consists of people whose primary language is Mainframe. They are asked to take up Java certification (SCJP) and make Java as a secondary language. What i would like to know is whether

1. Java Certificate SCJP 1.4 (CX-310-035) exam is still offered and whether it is valid/recognized.
2. Is there lot of difference between the SCJP 5.0(CX-310-055) and SCJP 1.4(CX-310-035)


Can you also let me know the exam price difference of taking up the Java 1.4 and Java 5.0 certification in
India and USA.

Thanks for your time and help

Regards
Nandy

I don't think SCJP 1.4 is offered any more. I think you can only take 5.0 or 6.0. I recommend the lastest version, 6.0, as it is not all that different from 5.0.

The exam price in India is 125$ and in USA its 300$. As Joe said, SCJP 1.4 is dead, you can't give it anymore. So you should go for SCJP 6. Checkout ScjpFaq for more info and links to exam objectives...
