Hello everybody,

I just wanted to inform you people that I wrote a blog post about both the OCAJP 7 and OCPJP 7 certifications.
-> http://softwarejedi.wordpress.com/2013/11/10/demystified-oracle-java-se-7-certifications-1z0-803-1z0-804/

It should be especially interesting to you if you are not yet certified. I am going into great detail describing what you have to expect (mostly in the form of example questions). That includes some of the naughtiest code fragments I encountered during preparation. Furthermore I provide links and opinions to the preparation material I used.

And last but not least, I just wanted to share my general thoughts about the certifications.

Would appreciate if somebody cared reading ... was quite a lot of work to put this together :-)

Regards,
softwarejedi

Thanks for sharing, I stole one of your chokes;)

One thing in your blog, your explanation regarding the exception question is not right: a non-static method can be called in a static method, but needs an object to be called on..

Hey timo,

the joke isn't actually from me. A colleague told it to me. There seems to be one for every programming language. I don't know where they originate from.

That's the one for Java:
"Once upon a time, a man wanted to solve a problem. He decided to use Java. All of a sudden, he had a ProblemSolverFactory.

Probably the greatest blog post about the exams I've read. I was about to write something similiar, but I believe it wouldn't be able to hold a candle against your's!
I finished the associate last month and was wondering which book to buy. Guess I'll stick with your recommendation, since K&B 7 seems to be on hold.

Servus und Gruß aus der Oberpfalz,
Bernhard
