These are frequently asked questions relating to the Oracle Certified Associate, Java SE 5/6, Java SE 7, and Java SE 8 Associate (OCA) certifications, and the common answers to them.



Where can I ask questions about the OCAJP exam that aren't covered in this FAQ?
That's what the CodeRanch Associate Certification (OCAJP) discussion forum is for.



Where can I find the OCAJP exam objectives?
  • OCAJP 8 (1Z0-808) objectives
  • OCAJP 7 (1Z0-803) objectives




  • How do the OCAJP objectives map to the old SCJP/OCPJP 6 exam?
    See the mapping table at OCAJP7 and OCPJP7 vs OCPJP6



    How do the OCAJP 8 objectives map to version 7?
    See the mapping table at OCAJP7 vs OCAJP8



    Who is the target audience for the OCAJP 5/6 exam versus the OCAJP 7/8 exam?
    From the SCJA Study Guide ... in regards to the SCJA which is now the OCAJP 5/6 (1Z0-850) exam:
    SCJA Study Guide wrote:We strongly recommend the SCJA certification to the following candidates:
    * Entry-level and junior programmers wishing to start and/or continue down the path of using Java technologies.
    * Software developers and technical leads wishing to solidify their Java-related skillsets.
    * Project and program managers wishing to gain a true perspective of the work and challenge of their teams complementary to their planning and direction.
    * Computer Science and information system students wishing to complement their education
    * IT job seekers looking for a well-deserved edge
    * Certification seekers wishing to round out their resume or curriculum vitae


    In regards to the OCAJP 7 (1Z0-803) exam, it's primarily good for matured programmers & software developers.



    What is the difference between the OCAJP 5/6 and OCAJP 7?
    I'm confused, is there an updated SCJA exam given by Oracle?



    Are there any books / resources for this certification?
