How much background is necessary before starting to study for Spring Certification?

I am planning to sit for the Spring Certification exam before the end of this year.  Originally I was planning to take the Oracle OCP exam (1Z0-809) prior to studying for the Spring Certification.  I already have the OCA (1Z0-808) certification.  Is it possible to do the Spring Certification prior to doing the OCP certification?  Or will I be too confused because I do not have good knowledge of the topics covered in OCP and not be able to comprehend the Spring topics?  

What are the pros and cons of completing the Spring Certification prior to the OCP and visa versa?

Thank you!

Hi Robin,

Spring certification has nothing to do with Java ceritification as such. None stops you to take Spring certification before Java certification. But if you have not done Java certification(OCP with JDK 8 or 11), I would suggest you go ahead with Java certification first and then jump into Spring cerification. The simple reason being since Spring is a framework built on top of Java. So it always makes sense to make the foundations reasonably sound and being certified   before going to Spring. So please do 1z0-809 before.
