Hi,

I see that your latest book still covers Java 8. yes, the OCP exam is still covering that topic, but I guess in the near future they will jump to a higher version. Are you not afraid that the book will soon become obsolete? Do you have any inside information from Oracle regarding certification version coverage?

Thanks.

Don't know, but it is possibe that there will only be exams for the LTS versions, of which the next will be 11.

Are you not afraid that the book will soon become obsolete? . . .

People buy such books for the exam version they are sitting, but it can be updated whenever a new version appears. The exam book will remain a useful resource for ages after the exam changes.
