Hello Every one ,,, I am having a doubt on the exam code.What is the difference between the 1Z0 -860 and 1Z0-895.
What I am concerned about is that I am looking for EJB exam but it seems both talk about the same thing.
Can any one clarify it?

Hi Naveen,

Did you look at the ScbcdLinks?

  • 1Z0-895 is the latest version of the EJB exam based on EE6 (only EJB, the is a separate JPA exam: 1Z0-898)
  • 1Z0-860 is the previous version based on EE5 (both EJB + JPA)

    CAN ANYONE SUGGEST which of the two exams should I Appear?
    I think going for old one (1ZO-860) will be better instead of appearing 2 exams (EJB and JPA seperately)
    as I find not much difference between EJB 3 and EJB 3.1 and JPA 1 and JPA 2 ?
    Please give me opinions for the same.

    The first one (1Z0 -860 ) refers OCPJBCD ( previously SCBCD) and it tests Java EE 5 EJB and JPA. 1Z0-895 exam code refers OCE EJB Developer certification introduced for Java EE 6. There are four Oracle Certified Expert (OCE) level certifications available for Java EE 6 and OCE EJB is the one to test EJB 3.1. The other OCE exams are OCE JPA, OCE Web Component and OCE Web Services.

    The latest Java EE 6 Certification for business component developer is divided into two certifications - EJB and JPA. These two certifications are completely different from previous SCBCD/OCPJBCD certification.

    The Java Designer’s general principle to architecting high scale or low scale application is choosing between EJB Centric Design (with EJB) or Web Centric Design (without EJB). OCE EJB Certification covers all design/developer knowledge required to implement Enterprise Java Bean Components.

    So take OCE certification instead of old one.
