Howdy Ranchers,

Just bumped into the following information:

http://blogs.oracle.com/certification/entry/0663 wrote:
Oracle Certification announces the release of the new "Oracle Certified Expert (OCE): Java EE 6 Web Component Developer" certification. This certification is for experienced developers of Java technology applications with the knowledge and skills to quickly build web applications suited to any Java EE 6 application server using JSP and servlet technologies.

Earning this new OCE certification requires passing a single exam - 1Z0-899 / "Java EE 6 Web Component Developer Certified Expert", as well as holding an existing Oracle Certified Professional (OCP) - Java SE 5 or SE 6 Programmer or Sun Certified Java Programmer (any edition).

Exam appointments are available now to take the "Java EE 6 Web Component Developer Certified Expert" exam at Pearson VUE testing centers worldwide. Visit pearsonvue.com/oracle and register for exam 1Z0-899.

Full preparation details are available on the Oracle Certification website, including all exam objectives, number of questions, time allotments and pricing.



Can't find out what are the differences between the "new Java EE 6 SCWCD" and Java EE 6 OCE JSP & Servlets exam. Any ideas what this exam is for? :-)

Cheers!


OCP Java SE 6 Programmer, OCM Java SE 6 Developer, OCE Java EE 6 JSPSD, OCE Java EE 6 EJBD, OCE Java EE 6 JPAD, Spring 3.0 Core Professional.

Exam objectives on this page look exactly the same as the JSP/Servlet one.
Seems like they are renaming JSP/Servlet to WCD.

Yup, that's what is happening:


On December 31, 2011, this exam (1Z0-894) is being directly replaced with exam 1Z0-899 Java EE 6 Web Component Developer. Exam 1Z0-894 may be taken through December 31, 2011. Beginning on December 13, 2011, candidates may register for exam 1Z0-899 for appointment dates after December 31, 2011

You're right Paul. Didn't notice that earlier:

Maybe with one you will focus only in Components, and JSP will focus on coding the pages/servlets.

I'm supposed to be writing my Servlet/JSP exam on 23 December.

You guys think i should rather postpone and write the other one?

Objectives are exact, so i see no reason to do this, but just want to be sure.

If you can postpone, IMHO, you should. Why settle with a certificate that you know is not going to be around a couple of weeks later?

Just to add, if you've passed the JSP and Servlets exam, it should be promoted to the Web Component one automatically.
Right now, I can see that there are information about two passed certificates: JSP and Servlets Developer and Web Component developer - both with the same date.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
