Hi author Hanumant Deshmukh,
More than 15 years ago, I was really helped by your SCWCD book, and used that knowledge for many years in Struts/Spring MVC web programming using Servlets/JSP. Now looking forward to recertify in Java 11 (I have Sun cert in Java 1.4), as I have started working in Springboot on OpenJDK 11 (after 2 years working in Golang). Intially, I was thinking about Java 8. So my question is, I see Java 11 has all the good things that came in with Java 6, 7, 8 (like NIO, date/time, stream, lambdas, modules, more on Future, etc). I see it did get rid of some unwanted J2EE APIs that overtime leaked into J2SE. So, mostly API removal from Java 8, and not that many additions (String isBlank(), etc). Is it then too different from Java 8 certification? Is there an upgrade path for Sun Java 1.4 cert holders? Is the overall path similar to Associate and Programmer certification as before?
Good luck with your book sale. Looking forward to earn your book free and get ready for some serious study.
