Hello guys, I am going to prepare OCMJD certification and I am not sure about what mandatory course should I take.

My first two options are:

Developing Applications With the Java SE 6 Platform
Java SE 7: Develop Rich Client Applications

Base on your experience and the certification requirements, what course do you think is the most useful?


Thank you very much.

Howdy, Daniel!

The description of the "Developing Applications With the Java SE 6 Platform" course is:

The Developing Applications With the Java SE Platform course gives you solid, practical experience. You'll learn to design a vertical solution for a distributed, multi-tier application and more.



The description of the "Java SE 7: Develop Rich Client Applications" course is:

The course takes participants through the process of designing a rich client application using Java SE 7 and Java FX 2. Using the Model-View-Controller (MVC) pattern and a case study approach, participants analyze, design, and develop the user interface, connect the user interface to a database, and finally connect the user interface to a RESTful web service. The user interface is created using key Java FX components including layouts, UI controls, data structures like ObservableList, charts, smart tables, CSS, and JavaFX concurrency libraries. Participants learn to add two tier and three tier features to their application by connecting to a database using the Java Persistence API (JPA). Finally, they learn to connect their application to a RESTful web service using JAX-RS and the Jersey API.



Based on that, I'd say that the first one would be much more useful for you at this moment.

Welcome to CodeRanch!

I've not gone through any of those trainings, but going by the content, first choice (Developing Applications With the Java SE 6 Platform) covers pretty much things which may come in handy in real world(JPA/JDBC etc.).
Second course you've listed will be helpful only when you are specifically working in Java FX/REST.

However, in the long run, if you are thinking for Enterprise Architect exam, you can go for a course requirement which is common for both OCMJD and EA exam (e.g. Java Programming Language, Java SE 6).
But please make sure with the authorities (Oracle Certification Department) that this is a valid move (using one training course for two certifications).

HIH.

That's what I would definitely do too.

Thank you very much for the advises. I will ask to Oracle for the posibility of doing only one course for two different certifications because this can save a lot of money. I will let you know.

See you.

I just talked to an Oracle worker and told me that is perfectly right to make only one course for two different certifications.

See you.
