Hi,
I am attempting to clear 1Z0-898 Java Persistence API exam sometime in near future. and i haven't given OCPJBCD exam yet. Is it mandatory to give OCPJBCD before giving JPA exam? What's the difference? i will be attemption OCPJBCD after i clear JPA exam though afterwards.

I haven't been through the history of the forum checking if this has been answered before. So if anybody can point me the links, will appreciate it.


Thanks
Vinayak

Hi,

No, it's not mandatory.

The differencve is that old SCBCD5 exam covers Java EE 5 and tests both EJB 3.0 and JPA 1.0.

The new exams for Java EE 6 are splitted, one tests EJB 3.1, anf the other tests JPA 2.0

HTH,

Is it more convenient/sensible to give EJB 3.1 certification before JPA certification? or it doesn't really matter.
