I've been wondering about something.

Is it okay to put in OCPJP in your resume if you have a SCJP, since they are essentially the same? What are ranchers thought about this?

(e.g. if you worked for Sun & it was bought over by Oracle, I suppose it would be okay to write "worked in Oracle (formerly Sun)")

I think I'd phrase it as "SCJP (now known as OCPJP)". It's clear, and no-one can accuse you of misleading them.

Agree with Mathew. Also just mentioning OCPJP would put people into thinking what its is about. Or you can make if concise if you want fewer words.

What is the problem of SCJP?

SCJP has the same value of OCJP, do not worry about it.

Thanks for your opinion guys. I think what Matthew said makes sense.

I would think going forward, say in a couple of years, an SCJP would date your experience vs OCPJP.
Ofcourse, this is just a small factor in the grand scheme of things in the job-hunting world.

I have written to my resume:
Sun (Oracle) Certified Java Programmer.
I think that it will take some time until the new OCPJP title will be accepted by most of the HR managers.

Please UseRealWords. Usage of abbreviations such as Q only make this harder to read.

I've edited the title so that it doesn't use the abbreviation anymore.

I write "SCJP (OCPJP) and SCWCD (OCPWCD)" on my resume as OCPJP/OCPWCD names are not well known yet...
