I was looking at the certifications available for Java SE and see that while we have OCA/OCP for Java SE8, dont seem to have an equivalent OCM for Java SE 8 while i do find OCM for Java SE 6 which is about to be retired from Nov 30, 2016 as per oracle blog.  Does anyone know, new ceritificaitons for Java SE 8 will be  introduced post the above?

No plans from Oracle to replace the OCMJD. See comments section at Oracle site here:

https://blogs.oracle.com/certification/entry/oracle_certified_master_java_se

In fact skills required for OCMJD are, apparently, considered by Oracle to have been subsumed into the Programmer Certifications as of Java 8 exams:

"At this time, there is no plan to release a new version of the certification. Through careful job task analysis with the Java SE 8 certification release, it was determined that the OCM Developer role was no longer appropriate to keep as a separate certification and the that skills of that role should be included in the Programmer certifications."
