Hi All!

Am I the first one here who passed this exam?
This exam was announced about 2 weeks ago.

I think this exam was not a very difficult for me.
But as I learned it much harder than 1Z0-808.

There were added several new themes from Java 8+
- modules
- var/type inference
- generic
- generic-inheritance

The preparation took about 2 months.
I used "OCA: Oracle Certified Associate Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide: Exam 1Z0-808" book written by by Jeanne Boyarsky  and Scott Selikoff
+ OCAJP-1z0-808 test from enthuware.com site.


Good luck to everyone !

Congratulations on passing this new exam, Dmitrii! and thanks for sharing your experience.
I am curious to know if you got any question that required knowledge of the Date/Time classes?

Yes. I read some info that Date/Time questions are absent in this exam, but I saw 2 such questions during my test.

I don't know, but you must be among the first, and regardless, many congratulations on a worthy achievement that's doubled on account of you having minimal resources for this new beast!

Can you add any more info regarding the generics questions you saw? There's no mention of generics in the published 1Z0-815 objectives, so this is pretty bad on Oracle's part if they did this. I can imagine the use of a few angle-brackets for giving generic types to something like a List, but more than that is pretty inexcusable to omit from the objectives. Also, what do you mean by generic inheritance? Are you talking about inheritance from a generic class/interface, or are you referring to co/contravariance?

Thanks for letting us know what's going on with this!

I mean something like in these examples.
https://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/java/generics/inheritance.html
When we should override some methods with generic types.

Wow, that's pretty evil that they include subclassing of generic types when the objectives don't talk about generics in any way. Still, I guess at least, from the context you give, it's not co/contra-variance.

Hopefully I'll see for myself in a week. Can't believe how long it takes to deliver a stupid electronic voucher, and then how little availability the testing centers near me have. One open day per week for the rest of this month, then a bit better further out!

Anyway, thanks again for the input!
