I will follow your advise and finally go throuh the whole process again with the 2 certifications instead of just the upgrade. I will probably be able to get the first one quickly too!

It might sound as a strange additional question but it would really matter right now.
I saw a job offer asking for at least Oracle Certified Programmer for Java SE6.
Was my "Sun Certified Programmer for Java 2" renamed to Oracle Certified Programmer for Java SE6 or is it just down the drain as an Oracle equivalent certification ? I am asking this questions since the Oracle certification upgrade path would qualify me to skip OCAJ Java SE8 certification exam and directly go for an "Upgrade for Oracle Certified Programmer for Java SE8" exam... because of a Sun certification for Java programmer SE6 and older versions.
