Hi Davide. Welcome to the Ranch!

Yes, inner classes are included. The relevant topic is actually the first one mentioned:

Develop code that declares classes (including abstract and all forms of nested classes), interfaces, and enums, and includes the appropriate use of package and import statements (including static imports).

Inner classes, like Matthew said, are very much included.

They can be used anywhere in any question. Especially anonymous classes.

So knowing about them is just as important.

Topics so far I have seen not included - Serialization.

Thanks a lot Matthew and Pritish I have exam on tuesday, it took me 30 minutes to become familiar with inner classes it would be very silly to skip this topics and increase number of potential wrong questions
actually I still have to face the following arguments
--console
--printf
--priorityque
not yet very familiar with regex and still little confused on java deadlocks questions

Serialization as well as wait-notify/notifyAll are also not on the objectives anymore.

When you finish the exam, you will get your score report immediately on your testing system and you can get a copy from test center representative.
You can also download your score report from your PearsonVue account.
You will get your certificate after 2-4 weeks from Oracle University, in the case of Pass.

Best of luck for your exam.

Passed !! which certification do you suggest next ? I think the natural continuation is web component considering I aim to web services and EJB, I have ten years experience in web development
so I dont think is not going to be too tough. Programmer certification helped me to cover many gaps I expect the same from web component. I am also planning developer certification I saw course on october

Thanks for mentioning that!

1. Is var-args included in the exam?? because i didn't see var-args mentioned anywhere on the oracle link:- OCJP 6 objective list
It was mentioned in the old objectives of scjp 6 as -

1.4) Develop code that declares both static and non-static methods, and—
if appropriate—use method names that adhere to the JavaBeans naming standards. Also
develop code that declares and uses a variable-length argument list.


Serialization, wait()-notify()-notifyAll() is also not in the objectives!
Is there anything more which is not there for current ocjp 6 ?

I'm not too sure about wait(), notify() and notifyAll() not being there.

I think I did see a couple of questions on wait().

Study them anyway, because they are crucial to concurrency problems.

Varargs is very much present, and to confuse you more, varargs will be asked as syntactical checks or in overloading method-matches.

In the old objective the following point was there-
Given a scenario, write code that makes appropriate use of wait, notify , or notify-All

In current "Concurrency" objectives, there are only first three of the same old objectives, fourth is removed!

Yes, var-args is quite tricky!!
