OCAJP for Java Asoociate and OCPJP is for Java Programmer.You have to be a associate first to be able to be a programmer i.e the case in Java 7 not in 6.You can directly give OCJP 6

If you are already SCJP certified i.e which is now called OCPJP then you can directly appear for OCPJP 7 (Oracle Certified Professional, Java SE 7 Programmer, 1Z0-805) which is an upgrade exam.

If you are not certified then you have to take up OCAJP 7(Oracle Certified Associate, Java SE 7 Programmer, 1Z0-803) and then take up OCPJP 7 (Oracle Certified Professional, Java SE 7 Programmer, 1Z0-804).

You can also take up OCPJP 6(Oracle Certified Professional, Java SE 6 Programmer, 1Z0-851) and then appear for OCPJP 7 (Oracle Certified Professional, Java SE 7 Programmer, 1Z0-805) which is an upgrade exam.

In short if you want to get certified for Java 7 then you have to take up atleast 2 exams where as if you want to be certified for Java 6 then one exam is sufficient.
