If you are planning to do Programmer certification means SCJP 6(OCP JP 6) is best.

SCJP 6 is renamed to OCP JP 6 by oracle. same certification don't confuse it.

If you are doing OCA JP 7 means you can achieve only Oracle Certified Associate, Java SE 7 Programmer Certification.

Again you need to do OCP JP 7 to achieve Oracle Certified Professional, Java SE 7 Programmer.

Please have a look at SCJP Faq or have a look at Oracle Certified Professional, Java SE 6 Programmer Preparation Article

Hi baski keb,

SCJP is renamed as OCPJP. Oracle has made some pretty major changes to the way the certified professional designation is obtained, not the least of which is the fact that the OCAJP (the Oracle Certified Assosicate: Java Programmer) designation is a prerequisite.So, you now have to pass two exams to get the professional designation.My suggestion is Do OCPJP 6 and then upgrade it with 7.

Regards,
James
