I have passed SCJP for Java 6 several years ago. Right now with Java 8 being here for some time I've decided that it would be nice to gain some in-depth knowledge about it with certification from Oracle - 1Z0-813 upgrade exam.

I've acquired both study-books (from Apress and Sybex) but have problems with the first test topic for upgrade exam. On the Oracle page it says:

  • Develop code that uses String objects in the switch statement, binary literals, and numeric literals, including underscores in literals
  • Develop code that uses try-with-resources statements, including using classes that implement the AutoCloseable interface
  • Develop code that handles multiple Exception types in a single catch block
  • Use static and default methods of an interface including inheritance rules for a default method



  • It does not seem problematic - although from my experience with Oracle certification there are lots of tricky questions that could be asked about it. So my question is - does anyone passed mentioned exam and can tell me which topics from books or other materials would be useful to cover knowledge needed for Language Enhancements topic?

    Michael,
    The first three topics were introduced with the OCP 7 exam. Which means you could look at a Java 7 cert book for another perspective.

    Or you can ask in this forum what you are confused/unsure about.
