HI All,
I am scjp1.4 certification. I have about 6yrs of work experience as a java programmer.
I am not sure if i should upgarde myself by taking OCPJP 1.7.
My goal is to take SCEA certification.

My question is :
1. should i upgrade myself to OCPJP1.7 first and then start working towards SCEA or should i just start working towards SCEA.
2. If i have to OCPJP1.7 am i required to take OCAJP and then OCPJP or can i just take upgrade exam for OCPJP1.7 as i am SCJP1.4 ?
Please let me know.

I think, you can write upgrade exam i.e. 1Z0-805 (and hence you need not write OCAJP).
I agree. Here's the link:
