Hi Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori,

Finally after many years, I'm doing the Java 7 Certification/Training work finally is sending us, however when then turning to Java 8 will LAMBDA expressions be made part of the testing process/learning procedure just to pass the Java test even though it's just a feature?

Regards
John

Yes. Lambdas are indeed part of the OCA 8 exam.

We have added a Lambdas chapter to our book. We spent a lot of time with and it think you will find it very useful during preparation.

Hi John Redwood,

First of all, a warm welcome to CodeRanch!

Yes, lambdas are part of the OCA8 exam. Here you'll find a mapping between the exam objectives of the OCA7 and OCA8 exams.

Hope it helps!
Kind regards,
Roel
