Hello,

I am getting concerned about which version of the JDK i have to use. The instructions says : "You may develop your code using any implementation of the Java 2 platform, but the submission that you return must have been tested and shown to work under a production (not development) version of the Sun Microsystems' Java 2 platform and that platform must not have been superseded by a new production version for more than 18 months by the time you make your submission."  . Should i use the latest version of JDK 6 ?
Can anyone tell me which version of JDK should i use ?

Thank you

JDK 8 is the most recent version.
It was released more than 18 months ago.
Ergo, you have to use JDK 8.

Thank you for your response Pawel.
I was concerned because the name of the certification is "Oracle Certified Master, Java SE 6 Developer" , and i thought i should use
JDK 6.

Oracle Certified Master, Java SE 6 Developer is, as you said, just a name. What is important here is the instruction and the must requirements.
