Are this topics on the SCJP 6.0 exam?

1. Seralization using externalizable interface
2. RandomAccessFile
3. Byte Streams (not readers and writers but for example :FileInputStream, InputStream, ByteArrayInputStream, DataInputStream, BufferedInputStream)

I found this topics in the "Complete Java® 2 Certification: Study Guide, Fifth Edition" (Philip Heller, Simon Roberts) but I can't find them in the "A Programmer’s Guide to Java™ SCJP Certification Third Edition" (Khalid A. Mughal Rolf W. Rasmussen) or in the "SCJP & SCJD for Java 2 Certification Study Guide" (McGraw Hill).


Please help

When in doubt, refer to the exam objectives

If it is in the objectives, it is in the exam

Hi Jakub,

Please find some differences SCJP 5 and SCJP 6 :-


SCJP 6.0

Section 3: API Contents

• 3.2 Given a scenario involving navigating file systems, reading from files, writing to files, or interacting with the user, develop the correct solution using the following classes (sometimes in combination), from java.io: BufferedReader, BufferedWriter, File, FileReader, FileWriter, PrintWriter, and Console.

Section 6: Collections / Generics

• 6.3 Write code that uses the generic versions of the Collections API, in particular, the Set, List, and Map interfaces and implementation classes. Recognize the limitations of the non-generic Collections API and how to refactor code to use the generic versions. Write code that uses the NavigableSet and NavigableMap interfaces.

Section 7: Fundamentals

• 7.4 Given a code example, recognize the point at which an object becomes eligible for garbage collection, determine what is and is not guaranteed by the garbage collection system, and recognize the behaviors of the Object.finalize() method.
