The "entry level" Java certification is the OCAJP. See our FAQ for information and then reply back in this thread with any further questions you have.

Thank you, I checked the FAQ. As mention there OCAJP 5/6 will be good for entry-level / beginner programmers.

But I got confused with these two articles:

1) One: Article by Roel De Nijs which was posted on posted 26/7/2013.
---------------------
OCAJ 5/6 is intended for non-technical people (like managers). OCAJP7 is the entry level certification for programmers/developers. Although both are defined as OCA, they can not be compared at all: for OCAJ 5/6 you almost need no knowledge about the java programming language (but more about the java eco-system), for OCAJP7 you'll fail without a good knowledge about the basics of the java programming language and object-oriented development (inheritance, polymorphism,...). The OCPJP7 certification exam covers more advanced topics from the java programming language (jdbc, concurrency, nio2, localisation,...).

If you want to become an OCPJP7, you can take to paths:
a. first OCAJP7, then OCPJP7
b. first OCPJP6, then take the OCPJP7 upgrade exam
---------------------
---------------------

2) Second: Article by Roel De Nijs which was posted on posted 21/9/2014.
-------------------------
If you are a beginning java programmer the OCAJP7 exam is the one best suited for you, because it's the entry-level exam.
-------------------------

So now, which one to go OCPJP 6 or OCAJP 7. What is the difference between them from study point of view? Also contents of these two exams are same or different.
(Are OCPJP 6 and OCAJP 7 ===== *SAME*)

Are new java 7 concepts included in OCAJP 7 exam like JDBC , NIO2 etc.? If yes, then what is the difference between OCAJP 7 and OCPJP 7..??

What is cost of these exams? Also provide me the study material.

Thank you,

Thank you for this.

I checked these.. So I think OCAJP 7 is just for understanding the basics, architecture of JAVA only.

From programmer's point of view OCPJP 6 and OCPJP 7 will be more useful. To get detailed understanding of JAVA That i guess.

Am I right.? Correct me if I am wrong.

Thank you,

I didn't realize that was still in there. (It was from when the Java 7 exam had just come out.) I removed it. The OCJP 5/6 is old and not a path to the future. Don't take it.

They are not the same. The OCJP 6 was split into two exams. The easier half is the OCAJP 7. The other "half" plus a number of new topics are in the OCPJP 7. The OCJP is the last time you can get a full programmer cert in one shot.

No, they are covered on the OCPJP 7.

The cost depends on where you live. In the US< the Java 7 exams are $245 each. There are books listed on the wiki pages for each exam.
