Hi,

Please help to provide below clarifications on OCMJEA Certification:-

1. Is there any eligibility criteria to appear for this exam?
2. Is this exam divided into different parts?
3. What is the best way observed to prepare for this exam?
4. Is there any suggested reading list for this exam?
5. Do we need to appear for any training to get the eligibility?

Thanks,
Raghu

1. There are no prerequisites for OCMJEA.

2. The OCMJEA consists of 4 parts (MC exam, assignment, essay and training). Oracle mandated the training before they give you the cert.

3. The MC exam covers quite a broad area ranging from design principles, the different tiers to design patterns and security. Preparing for it does require lots of reading to understand just enough the following:
what is it (purpose)
when to use it (advantages vs disadvantages)
why this is better than that (comparison)
how to set it up or configure it (app server familiarity), not really programming but knowing this will help

4. A good start is going through the FAQ and links

5. Mandatory training is required. Training can be done any time before, in between or after the exam. The assignment and essay are grouped together and MUST be completed within 6 months.
