Hello -

I am SCJP 5 (2006) certified and I am now planning to upgrade myself to Java 8 for which I know that there is an upgrade path available - IZO-813, my question is:

1. Should I go ahead with Java 8 Upgrade IZO-813
OR
2. Wait for a similar Java 11 certification. And how soon will this certification be available?

Regards

I believe there is no Oracle representative on this forum, so we can only make guesses.

I would go for Java 8 exam.

I think you should go with Option 1. Oracle has not announced a date for the next exam. In fact, they have not even announced it will be for Java 11. I think it will be. But I don't work for Oracle, so it is just an opinion.
