Welcome to Javaranch pram b!

Please take a minute to change your display name so that it follows Javaranch's famous naming policy. (You would need to spell out your last name instead of just using 'b'.)

You can change your display name right over here.

Pramod,

I attended Mughal's presentation "Cracking the New Sun Certified Programmer for Java 2 Platform 1.5 Exam" at the JavaZone conference in Oslo a month ago. He is working on a new 5.0 version of the book, but he had no date. "Sometime early 2006" was about as precise as he could get.

Some of you might be interested in the slides from the presentation...

I just asked mr Mughal the very same question by email. His reply was that it probably would not be ready until the second half of 2006. Before that, they will publish some material on the web site that should be enough to pass the 1.5 exam.
