Hi everyone
My objective is to get oracle certified expert java EE6 web services developer certification but as you know about prerequisite is programmer exam.

I would like to confirm the following:

1. Can I still take oracle certified professional java SE 6 programmer exam or is it necessary for me to take oracle certified professional java SE7 ?
2. Is there any expiry date for the certification?
3. Any relevant advice for my objective?

Regards
Usman

Yes. The OCJP 6 has not been announced for retirement yet. Oracle gives a sufficient amount of notice on retirements, so you are good.

The day the exam retires. There also might be an expiry date on your voucher so ask before you buy it.
