I have two queries.

1. I'm B.E. Computer fresher. I have enquired about java certification courses nearby my place. Two different institutes have told me two different courses as follow :
a. Core and Advance Java with Java Frameworks (Springs, Hibernate, etc. )
b. Core and Advance Java with Oracle SQL

So my question is which course from above will be more beneficial ?
As a fresher which topic is more beneficial to learn with java - Frameworks or Oracle SQL ?

2. Are java frameworks like Springs, Hibernate, etc. or Oracle SQL included in the OCJP syllabus ?

Welcome to the Ranch.

For JP cert there is no frameworks like Spring and Hibernate. There is a topic called JDBC which you will need to know for the exam.

You should check out their course syllabus/topics and see if that match with the JP7 exam objectives. Most of the times, such courses cover more than the exam including GUI, Java EE (servlet, JSP, EJB etc)

The choice is yours. Honestly from just the title, having frameworks will benefit you in the long term. Without the details it's hard for us to tell ... only you know.

Thanks !

I have further queries

I Know SQL basics, so on that basis can I learn Oracle SQL independently ?
Also is it possible to learn Java Frameworks independently with core knowledge of java ?

Hi Dev,

As per my experience, OCA/OCP certification will help you get deeper knowledge of core concepts. Of-course, you can learn frameworks at this stage but I would prefer you have a strong core java base before going further.

All the bst

Thanks,
Jyoti
