In a few words:

SCBCD 5 :
  • tests EJB 3.0
  • includes both EJB and JPA 1.0
  • based on JEE 5


  • OCE JBCD 6: ("Expert", not "Professional")
  • tests EJB 3.1
  • includes only EJB (JPA 2.0 is a separate exam now)
  • based on JEE 6

    The old SCBCD is now called OCPBCD (Oracle Certified Professional, Java EE 5 Business Component Developer v. CX-310-091) and is still available. There is no difference in the exam. It is the same exam with a different name.

    The new exam is called OCE-EJBD (Oracle Certified Expert, Java Platform, Enterprise Edition 6 Enterprise JavaBeans Developer v. CX-310-093 ) and it does not include JPA.

    Check this out for more details: http://education.oracle.com/PLEASE/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=402&p_nl=JJAV&p_org_id=1001&lang=US

    Replace PLEASE in the link above with letter p l s Apparently JavaRanch does not allow p l s abbreviation.

    Hello Ranchers!

    I'm learning for this exam and I've got a question for Ranchers who passed the new JEE 6 EJB 3.1 exam; are there really no questions about the JPA?

    Cheers!
