I am preparing for java programmer certficiation exam and planning to take in December 2012 or February 2013.

I wanted take scjp6 version(Java Standard Edition 6 Programmer Certified Professional Exam - Exam Number: 1Z0-851)

My question
1. Is sun will terminate this test by Feb 2013? any idea?

If I have to take scjp7, looks like I have to take two exams. Is that correct?

Java SE 7 Programmer I - 1Z0-803
Java SE 7 Programmer II - 1Z0-804

Please let me know. Based on your answers, I will prepare. But my preference is scjp6.

Thanks.

For SCJP6, exam 1Z0-851 is correct.

As I know, there is no news regarding exam retirement for Programmer cert. If there were, the notice is announced 6 months prior to the retirement date. BTW, SCJP5 will retire first before SCJP6. So you shouldn't need worry about this.

Yes this is correct, for SCJP7 or OCPJP7, 2 exams are needed. First exam (Programmer I) will get the OCA then the 2nd exam the OCP.
