Question about Java OCA SE 7 1ZO-803 expiration date

Hello everyone,

This is my first post

I'm preparing for the Java OCA SE 7 1ZO-803, at this very moment I'm starting to take some mock exams, however arises the question about the expiration date (if any) of this certification in case I pass it. Since Java 8 is close to its release to the public I wonder if this could affect.

Will you please give me a better understanding regarding this subject?

Thank you in advance.

The certification itself has no expiration date...
However it may become out of scope only when companies start moving all of their products to implement features using the Java 8 feature set,

hey Daniel,

Actually the OCAJP 7 certification doesn't have any expiration date. If you ready to go for your OCAJP 7 exam then You can go for it now. Still there is no official information published by Oracle about Java 8.

Good Luck
