can, but you will not be OCP JP developer before you get both exams.
Also you cant get you certificate (paper).

what I could'nt undrestand , in the last version of certification (Java 6) there is one exam classified under programmer certification (SCJP6 ) , but now do I have to pass two exam OCP JP & OCA JP to be java programmer certified ? The last exam version SCP6 had been splitted into two exam : OCA JP & OCPJP ? Could you explain to me this point because I have some confusion..

for SCJP6 was one exam not prerequisite. you pass and get this degree.
for get OCP you must pass both exam OCA and OCP.
if you pass only one you will not be grant with OCP certificate, if you pass OCA after OCP you will be OCP Professional certified specialist. (but this is strange path)
Alternative way be pass SCJP6 and than pass upgrade exam. (but because this still equivalent for cost - your best choise pass OCA and than OCP)
also you can pass for version java 8 1Z0-808
and then pass Java SE 8 Programmer II 1Z0-809
(link to read exam topics)
also soon ... 1Z0-811 be available so i don`t know best way because may be java 8 obsolete soon ))))

also you can read this forum
https://coderanch.com/forums/f-117/ocajp
which has book recommendation, and some advice in preparation.
also recommend enhuware mock tests for little cost you can find flawed knowledge of some topics, and increase you result by work with them :

http://www.enthuware.com/index.php/mock-exams/oracle-certified-associate/java-oca-certification-8

and in this one you can read experience from people who already pass exams

Just aother question : I hesitate between start preparing to OCA JP 8 or OCA JP 7 . Can I find OCA JP 8 preparation matrreials easily ? and I'm planning to prepare for the OCP after passing the OCA JP 8. But It seems that OCP JP8 is not yet presented by oracle because when I checked their website I noticed that only the OCP JP7 is presented for now.
