This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
Can anyone tell me what the exact date/period is for the retirement of the SCJP/OCPJP 6 Programmer Exam. I have trawled Oracle's cert area but can't locate an actual time or date?
Any help would be very useful for my preparation.
By retirement if you mean when Oracle will stop letting people take this exam, then there is no exact date of retirement of the OCPJP 6 exam as of now. I believe (personal opinion based on past experience) that it will be available for at least another year.
If you mean, when your OCPJP 6 certification expires, then the answer is never. Once you are certified for one version, you are always certified for that version.
