I don't understand why Oracle cannot keep 1Z0-815, 1Z0-816, and 1Z0-819 around.  Oracle could easily make it clear that there are two paths to certification:  1Z0-815/816 or 1Z0-819.  After a year or so announce that 1Z0-815/816 is being retired in another year to give those who started on the 815/816 path plenty of time to complete it.

I took the 1Z0-815 and passed it in June, waited for Jeanne's and Scott's book to come out, and have started preparing for 1Z0-816.  But I won't be ready to take that exam before Oct 1.  

So now I'm stuck having paid for 1Z0-815 exam.  For me I'd rather take 1Z0-816 with its tighter focus then the 1Z0-819.  

It ridiculous and unfair for Oracle to penalize those people who have already completed the 1Z0-815 exam.  815 and 816 exams have not been out for very long.

Can you say that again?

(I just wanted to echo all your concerns ... if you haven't noticed.)

If you haven't already, please be sure to Complete A Formal Retirement Exam Extension Request.  Oracle must be made accountable for this (particular) horrible decision aware how their decisions impacts The Global Java Community.  If you are affected, please open the floodgates with these requests since it's likely they may only possibly operate based upon their own internal data if "enough" request come in.

Hello, Is there a new book for 1Z0-819 exam? Or should we prepare with 1z0-815 and 1z0-816 books?

Oracle should update this page:  https://education.oracle.com/oracle-certified-professional-java-se-11-developer/trackp_815 which still says the path to Java 11 Certification is to take and pass 1Z0-815 and then take and pass 1Z0-816.  There is nothing on the page about 815/816 being retired as of Oct 1 or of a new 1Z0-819 exam.

Correct.  However, from that site, the respective links show the info.
