Does anyone have information about when Sun will come out with a Web Component Developer exam that includes more up-to-date technologies (e.g. JSF)? The current SCWCD cert covers J2EE 1.4, which includes (AFIK) J2SE 1.4, Servlet 2.4 and JSP 2.0.
Now here we are with JSE 5 (already covered by a new SCJP cert), Servlet 2.5, JSP 2.1, and JSF 1.2. The SCWCD 1.4 cert is lagging.
I don't want to take the old exam, and then have the new exam emerge a couple of months later. Plus, it doesn't seem worth it to learn a lot of detail about the old specs which are different from or superceded by the newer specs which is what I'll be using going forward.
It's strange, because on the one had Sun seems to push the newer stuff (like JSF in Studio Creator) but on the other hand, they're ignoring the certification channel as a way to evangelize the newer specs.
