Even I'm preparing for the upgrade exam (-013) using the OCP Java SE 8 study guide by Jeanne and Scott. Taking a look at the objectives, I am reading the entire book minus chapters 8 (IO) and 10 (JDBC). For questions, I am referring to the review exercises at the end of each chapter, plus the Sibex Wiley online bonus questions.

Is there any other reading material or sample questions that would closely mirror the OCP Java 8 exam (or upgrade exam)? I went through Java 8 in action, it is a great book but not specifically tailored for the certification.

Any pointers or advice would be much appreciated!!

Hi all,

Is the Spliterator interface in scope for OCPJP 8 or OCPJP 8 upgrade? I am currently reading Java 8 in action. It has a chapter on Spliterator but the concept is a bit complicated.
Hi Jeanne, I am trying to prepare for the Java 8 upgrade exam (I already hold SCJP 1.4 certification from ages ago)

Will your book include sections for the upgrade exam as well? Is it possible to highlight the chapters that I would need to study?
Hi friends,

Can we give the exam first and then undergo the mandatory training? Or is it required to take the mandatory training first before registering for the exam?
Congrats Prakash! Can you please share your preparation tips and how many hour approximately it took to read up?
Congratulations Christiaan!!! Did you give the Java EE 5 or Java EE 6 version?
Congrats Subodh! Did you have to re-read the study guide material multiple times? Or was one pass enough?

I myself am hoping to clear TOGAF Part 2 exam soon

I am in Singapore and I registered by booking an exam slot on Prometric online. The fee (320 USD) was charged to my Singapore card and it was converted to Singapore dollars when I saw my card transaction statement.

Thanks all for the replies!!

Does the "Architect Enterprise Applications with Java EE" training require us to take previous trainings as well? The course page lists "Developing Applications for the Java EE 6 Platform" and "Object-Oriented Analysis and Design Using UML" as required pre-requisites. I haven't attended those trainings - in fact I haven't attended any "official" trainings from Sun or Oracle.
I am interested in getting the Oracle Certified Master, Java EE 6 Enterprise Architect certification. On the course details page (https://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=653&get_params=p_id:212) it mentions that I need to complete one of the below mandatory trainings:

  • Architect Enterprise applications with Java EE
  • Developing Applications for the Java EE 6 Platform
  • Java Design Patterns
  • Java EE 6: Develop Business Components with JMS & EJBs
  • Java EE 6: Develop Database Applications with JPA
  • Java SE 7 Fundamentals
  • Java SE 7 Programming
  • Web Component Development with Servlets & JSPs, Java EE 6
  • Java EE 6: Develop Web Services with JAX-WS & JAX-RS
  • Java EE 7: New Features
  • Object-Oriented Analysis and Design Using UML
  • Java SE 8 Fundamentals
  • Java SE 8: Programming

  • I have a couple of questions:

    1. To ultimately clear the certification exam "Java EE 6 Enterprise Architect Certified Master 1Z0-807" is any one of the above trainings preferable? Or I can just choose any random training?

    2. Would the training have an assessment test/exam?
    There is a one month wait period. But I think we can contact the Open Group within a few days of failing and they will give discount voucher for the retake attempt

    I think that if you put the custom tag mapping and tagfile mapping (in case the tag file is put in a JAR) in the same TLD file, then you cannot use the same name for both of them. But if only the custom tag is present in the TLD, and the tag file is placed in /WEB-INF/tags, then you can use the same name for both (because you will use two taglib directives, one with "uri" attribute for the custom tag, and one with "tagdir" attribute for the tag file)
    Thanks a lot Rishi (I was too lazy to type the questions )

    But I agree with you on the RequestDispatcher question (no. 22), because that code is servlet, not JSP (it is not inside a scriptlet)

    But the rest of the questions (or rather, the answers given) are still confusing for me...
    Okay, but then how can one explain the output of the code that I ran (5th post in this thread)?

    Anyways, it doesn't matter to me strictly as I've cleared the exam, but it would be great that all doubts are cleared:

    And 1 more thing regarding the spec:

    JSP Spec for PageContext states that PageContext.setAttribute creates a new page-scoped attribute, but PageContext.removeAttribute will look in ALL scopes for removing the attribute... isn't that confusing
