Hello,
Maybe this will be stupid question.
I passed OCJP 6, now i wanna pass ejb exam. As I know I need to pass first Developer version, then next Expert, right?

Which exam should I need to pass first OCBCD vs. OCPEJBD?

I tried to search for EJB develper version at personvue, but i see only 2 types of this exam:

1Z0-860 Java Enterprise Edition 5 Business Component Developer
1Z0-895 Java EE 6 Enterprise JavaBeans Developer Certified Expert Exam


Meanwhile Oracle website says:
http://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=41&p_org_id=1001&lang=US&p_exam_id=1Z0_895

Associated Certifications: Oracle Certified Expert, Java EE 6 Enterprise JavaBeans Developer

Now I'm confused, which exam should I pass first?

Hi Gregory,

Welcome to CodeRanch!

Actually, both exams are at same level (i.e. pre-requisites are same). Only difference is - one exam is for JEE 5 and other is for JEE 6.

You can opt any exam, as you are eligible for both. However, going for JEE 6 certification is better choice for below reasons:

1) It is based on latest JEE version (version 6)
2) It is totally focused on EJB. Please note that for JEE6, Oracle has provided difference certifications - 1 for EJB and 1 for JPA. So, OCPEJBD is purely EJB (no JPA stuff).

I hope this helps.

All the best!

Thank you for full response.

This expert vs. developer is little confusing. I thought it is higher level than developer.

Yes, you're right I wanna pass JEE 6 exam.

I think it is called OCEEJD . The first 3 letters are either OCA, OCP, or OCE . Why would you need
professional EJB when you are already professional Java programmer?
And the 3 letters follows are Enterprise JavaBeans Developer .
So OCEEJD .
