Question regarding Java Certification
I am planning to do Java Certification i have a question regarding it..
Is "Sun Certification Programmer for the Java 2 Platform S.E.5.0"
and " Sun Certification Programmer for the Java 2 Platform 1.4 version(SCJP 1.4)?" are same..
if its different how?
suggestion and tips regarding certification preparation are welcome

There are minor but real differences. Study in 1.4 will be mostly applicable to 1.5 but we have big discussions about the question you post that get little done. In general, go for the latest as that is the preferred style.
Do not hold up studies if 1.4 is the only thing available.

Yes there is a different. Better to move with the latest one. Don't much worried too, 1.4 is still valid as 1.5 difference is the course content.

Yep, Eranga's got it. Always go for latest but study of even Java 1.0 is not wasted. Some very useful skills come from trying to do something with the simplest tools.

You looking to take a job related to Java, I don't think it is matter of the SCJP exam version you take. Even you take the previous version(say 1.4) still have to touch with latest technologies in Java. That's the key point. SCJP certification is just gave an identification to others that you are a key person in Java, that's it. All the things depends on you. :)

I want to know one thing is that is taking SCJP really important?
At last what interviewers look is how much knowledge we have rite.
I have few frnds who have given their SCJP but by getting Database from somewhere that doesnt mean they know moew than what i do isnt it?
When i enquired my seniors,out of 100%, 20% of them suggested me to go for it.
where as the other 80% asked me to forget it and do a better job.
Any suggestions?To finish sooner, take your own time....

What I believe is that SCJP is not really important. It's just an image that show up to others you are keen on Java. But actually to be keen on, you have to do hard work.
Passing the SCJP is not much difficult(actually not quite easy too). In real world applications you have to do more. There is a big different. I've met few people that CSJP certified, but some of them still don't know how to deal with a DB application. SCJP not covered that and they don't know.
Requirement of SCJP certified in a job, there is 50% 50% chance to have a real valued. What you have to do is, certified or not, update with the latest, most valuable sections in Java, for real world application.

No dear iam not, SCJP is useful when you are new to Java or you do not have much exp in Java, I have also 3 to 4 yrs exp in java tech. One can easly get good marks after having good exp.sanjeev,संजीव
