Gabriel Beres,

You need to complete Oracle Certified Associate, Java SE 7 Programmer certification (OCAJ 7) before taking OCPJP 7. If you already hold any version of Oracle Certified Professional, Java Programmer OR Any version of Sun Certified Java Programmer you can attend OCPJP 7 under upgrade path.

Oracle currently have BETA exam of upgrade path only and other BETA exams will be available soon.
