Hello, there are such news that Oracle stops development of Java EE
http://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2016/07/how-oracles-business-as-usual-is-threatening-to-kill-java/

If Java EE has stopped or handed over, what about Oracle JEE certifications? Is it recommended to prepare Oracle JEE certifications, specially OCMJEA?

First, read this thread from last month when this was in the news.

The concepts on the OCMJEA apply to Sprint as well as Java EE. Yes, I know they don't call out Spring by name, but Spring influences Java EE. IBM and RedHat are still moving forward with Java EE. The concepts aren't going anywhere.

I believe JavaEE will continue to be developed and maintained in future, because:
1. JCP Executive Committee has many companies on board that are ready to take over this work. The list of companies on JCP EC is impressive (https://jcp.org/en/participation/committee).
2. There is a huge financial market for JavaEE application servers, middleware servers, their commercial support and related components. This specific business is an important one, and one of the significant sources of revenue for the companies such as Oracle, IBM, SAP, Red Hat etc. These companies wont let go of a significant source of revenue that easily.
3. Considerable percentage of software applications being developed/enhanced today are built using JavaEE. This work is a big line of revenue for consulting firms like Accenture, IBM, HP, CSC, Indian software giants, etc.
4. Stopping the JavaEE development and not handing it over to any other company would impact Oracle as well. That would be a lose-lose situation.

If Oracle hands over the JavaEE development to some other entity, then I assume and believe that, that entity will continue these certifications just like how Oracle continued these after acquiring Sun. There might be a change in name, such as from SCEA to OCMJEA. But format would probably remain same. Even these certification and training activities will fetch a revenue to the company.

I think the catch is that Oracle doesn't want to hand over the reigns. They have an app server too. But they aren't being responsive enough.
