No. It's not mentioned in the official exam objectives.

No. Remember the old cert was split into Java 7 Programmer 1 and Java 7 Programmer 2. Try-with-resources was on Programmer 2 then. To build the Java 8 Programmer 1 beta, they took the old Java 7 Programmer I and added a few topics new to Java 8.

As a general rule after taking/passing the exam i can safely say that the exam is almost perfectly in sync with the exam objectives.(and more then some mocks out there) The only two things i found as new was a type of unchecked exception i ve never seen before (i was able to deduce the correct answer by eliminating the wrong answers) and Type List used to reference ArrayList objects which for some people is not new but for me it was .

LE.Noticed after that it's 808 not 803 .Even if the objectives are almost the same there is no guarantee the exam will not have a different format/difficulty .
