Welcome to the Ranch.

Your answer really depends on what version of JP you plan to do. For v5 and v6 there are NO prereq. For v7 there are 2 steps OCA then OCP.

CX-310-065 (SCJP) is now 1Z0-851 (OCP JP), there is no need to do OCP JA for Java 6 SE edition.
If you want to go for Java 7 edition certification, First you have to complete Associate Exam.
