Hi James,

I was reading a list of objective comparison here http://www.coderanch.com/how-to/java/OCAJP7andOCPJP7vsOCJP6

Can you please explain what were the reason to include the following objectives into OCAJP and not OCPJP.

1.5 Use virtual method invocation
3.5 Design a class using the Singleton design pattern
3.6 Write code to implement the DAO pattern
3.7 Design and create objects using a factory, and use factories from the API
11.2 Apply atomic variables and locks
11.3 Use Executors and ThreadPools
11.4 Use the parallel Fork/Join Framework

Because I think these are a bit advanced topics that could have suited well with OCPJP and not OCAJP.

OCAJP is a stepping stone for OCPJP and if some finds these objectives as difficult then it would de-motivate him/her to proceed further.

Hi Abubakkar,

You are correct These topics are not on the OCAJP7, but on the OCPJP7. I guess it's a copy/paste error, the 2nd table is about OCPJP7 and not OCAJP7.

If you have doubt about the exam objectives you can (and should) always check the official exam page, which can be found here: OCAJP7 and OCPJP7

Hope it helps!
Kind regards,
Roel

I just fixed the typo. So 1st table about this certification (OCAJP7) and 2nd table about the OCPJP7 certification.

Hope everything is crystal clear now!
