See the nice shiny new forum if you are here for the OCAJA Java 7 Programmer I.

And if you have any thoughts on how to make this separation clearer, post here.

The associate forum names are currently:
--> Associate Certification (SCJA/OCAJ) and
--> New Oracle Certified Assoicate, Java Programmer I (OCAJA)

I would consider renaming them to:
--> Associate Certification (SCJA,OCAJP 5/6) and
--> Associate Certification (OCAJP 7)

Thanks,
Robert

Robert,
Good suggestion. I've changed it. Except for the first one, I wrote SCJA/OCJA 5/6. Is there really a P at the end or is that a typo?

Also, what is your opinion about having the forums separated? We are having some internal debate about whether it is a good idea.

Jeanne,

I believe that separation of these forums is a very sensible step. I appreciate it.

The current version of the Associate certifcation in Java (OCA JP7) is quite different from its earlier version (OCA Java 5/6 or SCJA) in terms of its exam audience, pattern of questions, exam topics and the fact that OCA JP7 is a pre-requisite for OCP Java SE 7 certification. Due to these differences a lot of ranchers have been facing confusion while answering posts.

To make the separation clearer, I suggest creation of a sticky post in the old and new forums with a title, say, 'Who is this forum for?', which clearly states the exam title and exam number for the respective forums.

Thanks,
Mala
