Java Performance Tuning Certification

Hi Edward & Robert,

I was bit interested in the Java Performance Tuning certification from Oracle, But I believe there is not any certification available. Correct me if I am wrong. What you guys believe there should be one available from Oracle.

Also is there any specific certification available for the "JVM specification" and "Java Language Specification" from Oracle? I believe who so ever wants to be an expert in in-depth knowledge about java should have these certification.

Regards,

I know there are plenty of books available for JavaPerformanceTuning, but I would like to know is there any certification from ORACLE which is only for the Java Performance engineers?

Hi,

There's no certification for Java performance tuning. I think that's one example of a certification very few people could be prepared for or develop. I wish however such a certification were available.

"I was bit interested in the Java Performance Tuning certification from Oracle, But I believe there is not any certification available."
Yup, I too believe this is not covered by any of the exams. I'm not sure if the subject matter warrants an exam, all in it of it self... but having coverage somewhere in the certification path would be nice.

"Also is there any specific certification available for the "JVM specification" and "Java Language Specification" from Oracle?"
Most of the coverage in the SCJA/SCJP and OCA/OCP exams are derived from the Java Language Specification (JLS), at least in a round about way. In theory, you could study for the technical parts of the exam from the JLS completely by itself, but this wouldn't be much fun. I would recommend that when studying for the OCA and/or OCP to keep the JLS handy, and reference it as needed... but definitely have an appreciation for it's existence... which it appears you have.

Thanks for the questions,
Robert
