Hey All,

Hope doing good.

I already possess an OCAJP 7 and I am preparing for OCPJP 7. I could now also see OCPJP 8 certification available in market. So, should I go for OCPJP 7 or OCPJP 8?. I have been working on Java 7 but not 8 as yet.

Awaiting your reply.

There is no exam that would let you upgrade OCAJP7 to OCPJP8 directly.

So your options are:
- OCAJP7 → OCPJP7 → OCPJP8
- OCAJP8 → OCPJP8

The first one already answers your question. You can upgrade your Associate certification to a Professional and then, if you wish, you can upgrade that to version 8.

The second path makes your current certification irrelevant so I doubt you'd choose it.

In any case, getting OCPJP8 requires you to pass two exams. You can get OCPJP7 with only one exam.
