You can take the Java 7 upgrade exam which will get you to be OCPJP 7 certified. You can't take the full OCPJP 7 exam without the OCAJP 7 pre-req. In other words, the upgrade exam is different than the other path.

Hi Jeame, I have a doubt.

I am OCPJP6 certified.

if I take the Java 7 upgrade exam (1Z0-805), Will I be "OCAJP7 + OCPJP7", or only "OCPJP7"?
In other words, I will be a "full Java SE 7 Programmer"?

Thanks in advance.

There is no half or full certification; either you will be certified or not. If you take (and pass offcourse) upgrade exam, you will be OCPJP7 certified.
