Good morning Jeanne and Scott, all the best for a happy & healthy new year.

In an attempt to polish an old certification (SCJP5) certifying for SE 8 this year is in my radar ;)

Were does the focus lie nowadays when it comes to this certification?

Thank you, kind regards,

The biggest feature in Java 8 was lambdas/functional programming. This topic is used in questions that cover many of the other objectives as well. So you have to know this topic REALLY well.

If you plan to take the upgrade exam from 6 or earlier, make sure you read the appendix. There's a lot of stuff (from OCA 8 and OCP 7) that are required knowledge for the upgrade exam and not in the OCP 8 objective list.

So you need the "Upgrade to Java SE 8 OCP ( Java SE 6 and all prior versions)" exam (1Z0-813). Here you'll find all exam topics you need to know to pass this exam.

Besides the new Java 8 features (streams, lambda expressions, interfaces with default and static methods, Date/Time API) you also need to learn about new Java 7 features (diamond, multi-catch, try-with-resources, NIO.2). Probably the best you can do is purchase an OCPJP7 study guide and use it in your preparation to study the Java 7 related exam objectives.
