Have they taken the beta out? Now they show full pricing...

That's great! That gives enough time for a thorough preparation! I am planning to study the topics/materials of OCPJP7 upgrade (805) and OCPJP8 upgrade (810) exams.
So finally Oracle has announced the Java8 upgrade exam for OCPJP6, SCJP1.4 etc.

It is in Beta, but not yet available for taking it seems.

Any information on the start and end dates of the beta?
Yes, I know of course! Have been using it since I started prep! Thanks for keeping them updated !

Yes! This is the path I am also going to follow to upgrade myself from 1.4 to 8.

SCJP 1.4 ---1Z0805---> OCPJP7 ----1Z0810----> OCPJP8

Welcome to the ranch!

Please refer to the FAQs. The details are same for any place irrespective of the country.
Did you create both classes in Type 1 and Type 2 in same package?

Maybe, I am confused with interfaces



Only in interfaces, the methods are public and abstract by default.

Your code snippet is totally different than the code in the original post as your code list exactly the same method declaration in both interfaces. So you can't compare them at all.



It was the change I made to the original code to get it work. That's why it is "totally different" ...

This compiles fine:



I am using Java 7.
Looking at the Java 8 upgrade syllabus, it seems only new Java8 features are covered. The new Java7 features which are covered in Java 7 upgrade are not tested at all. So an upgrade to 7 and then to 8, given the current coverage, makes more sense to me. They should have a 7-to-8 upgrade exam and another pre7-to-8 exam, in my opinion.
This is really confusing . I am SCJP 1.4 certified and preparing for the Java 7 upgrade. The option to upgrade to 8 directly, that too in a beta (saves $$$ ) looks very tempting, but the confusion related to the eligibility is making me stick with the plan for 7 upgrade. I might think about 8 or 9 upgrade later.
