Hello Folks,

I am planning to do OCEJPAD certification in sometime ( Targeting couple of months from now ). Is there a study group which I could be part of to complete this. I don't use JPA on my day-to-day work and I planning to go through the Pro JPA 2 book. Would that be sufficient or could someone give me some pointers on how to go about it.

Also let me know if I need to upgrade my ocjp in order to take this up. I did my OCJP in 2010

Regards,
Ashwin

Hello, @Ashwin,

I looked up the site at

https://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=654&get_params=p_id:160

And it says:
Oracle or Sun Certified Java Programmer (Professional) any version


This means any full (I assume not the Associate) OCJP or SCJP test would work. Last year, I passed the Oracle Certified Architect exam with a SCJP version 1.6. So, yours should not be a problem.

I have never taken the exam for JPA. I used resources like Whizlabs to get through that one. Someone on these forums has suggested Enthuware.

Thanks Foster for sharing those. I have gone through few of them and they are 3/4 years old and am not sure if things hold true today. Looking for suggestions from anyone who took it up recently.

Definitely best to get the most recent input. However, this test already has an implied dated-ness about it. 1Z0-898 is "Java EE 6" specific. For example, the link below:

http://docs.oracle.com/javaee/6/tutorial/doc/

Has a date mentioned within it of 2013.

My conclusion: of course it is best to get recent input. But, it may not make that much difference here. Oracle could change the question set, but I think they have to stick with concepts and material that were current when Java EE 6 was released. They cannot suddenly ask Java EE 8 questions.

I hope that helps.
