I have been referring to the following book to take OCPJP 6 exam 1Z0-851

"SCJP Sun® Certified Programmer for Java™ 6 Study Guide (Exam 310-065)" by Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates

It will be very helpful to me to have a list of the topics in SCJP 6 (Exam 310-065) that are officially removed in OCPJP 6.

Please help.

I don't think there are any topics removed from the old SCJP6 to the new OCPJP6. The objectives are exactly the same.

Thanks for the reply, K.Tsang...

I compared the Exam Objectives in the book "SCJP Sun® Certified Programmer for Java™ 6 Study Guide (Exam 310-065)"
with the Exam topics of 1Z0-851 and found that the following objectives are removed in 1Z0-851.

1.4 "Develop code that declares both static and non-static methods, and—if appropriate—
use method names that adhere to the JavaBeans naming standards. Also develop code that
declares and uses a variable-length argument list."
3.3 "Develop code that serializes and/or de-serializes objects using the following APIs from
java.io: DataInputStream, DataOutputStream, FileInputStream, FileOutputStream,
ObjectInputStream, ObjectOutputStream, and Serializable."
4.4 Given a scenario, write code that makes appropriate use of wait, notify. or notifyAll.


I guess I can skip Serialization entirely? (Objective 1.4)
Please help me. Let me know if I am wrong.

Hi Bindu Tadivaka,

As the oracle group is conducting the exam the name of scjp is renamed as OCPJP. you can 't skip serialization its there in the syllabus. For more information you can have look at this site click here

Well objective 4.4 is in fact part of the objective 4.3 "Given a scenario, write code that makes appropriate use of object locking to protect static or instance variables from concurrent access problems."

For 1.4 you should need to know along with the purpose of Serializable interface. The other mentioned java.io.* can be ignored, but it's worth knowing.

Where do you see serialization in that link? I see a reference that Serialization was removed and I don't see it in the syllabus now - using the link you provided.
