Hi Sergej,

How did you find this beta exam? Because it is not mentioned on the New and Upcoming Releases page.

Kind regards,
Roel

Well I checked the Oracle site, under the all exams here there is indeed a link for the Java 8 programmer upgrade.

However the "upcoming exams" section not listed yet.


The first read of the objectives feel like a lambda exam

I plan to pass this beta
I will post my experience after the exam. I have not scheduled it yet so I don't know when I will be able to do so.

The exam is not visible on pearsonvue yet. Do betas require private access key? Or we just need to wait to be able to schedule this?

Strange, I will check with my PearsonVue account.

Not sure what does private key meant.

Or we just need to wait to be able to schedule this?


We shall be able to schedule it like other normal Oracle certification.

I have given two Oracle BETA exams (OCP Java 7 Upgrade and OCP Java 8 Programmer I exam). For scheduling/appearing in exam , we need Oracle ID/Sun ID.

The Oracle Certification Program Beta Exams comes with lots of valuable information in the Important Information on Beta Exams section: The Beta Exam is only available for testing appointments during the Beta Exam Period.

Also be careful when paying for a beta exam using a production exam voucher: Beta exam vouchers are not available, however, production exam vouchers you have purchased may be used to pay for beta exams. However, the full value of the voucher will be forfeited. Partial amounts may not be deducted from a voucher. If your voucher is worth $245US and you use it to purchase the beta exam at $50US, you will forfeit the remaining $195US and your voucher will not be valid for further use.

Of course you can take the exam.
The problem is that you won't get OCPJP8 certified without OCPJP7 passed.

And welcome to the Ranch!

Hi Victor Rodri,

First of all, a warm welcome to CodeRanch!

Victor Rodri wrote:So I can't get the certification Java SE 8 OCP from certification Java SE 6 OCP.


Based on the upgrades page, it's not possible to upgrade from OCP6 to OCP8. You first have to upgrade to OCP7 before you can upgrade to OCP8. But maybe that will change in near future. Because it's strange, you can upgrade from sun certified java 1.4 programmer to OCP7, but upgrading from OCP6 to OCP8 would not be possible I would create a service request to the OCP team and ask if it's possible. If you get an answer (they reply quite quickly), don't forget to share the answer here

Kind regards,
Roel

I asked Oracle about the upgrade path and got this reply:

Please note Sun Certified Programmer for the Java Platform, SE 5.0 certified candidates can upgrade their credentials to Oracle Certified Professional, Java SE 8 by passing the exam 1Z0-810 Upgrade to Java SE 8 Programmer. No other action is required.



which is good news, my appointment at the test centre is all booked :-)

That's very good news for those who are already a certified java programmer and want to become OCPJP8 certified.

As far as I know, there is currently no study guide available. Not surprisingly as the exam objectives are released publicly just a few weeks ago.

They answered this 3 days ago:

"Please note you will not be able to upgrade from Oracle Certified Professional, Java SE 6 Programmer certification to Oracle Certified Professional, Java SE 8 Programmer by passing the Upgrade to Java SE 8 Programmer 1Z0-810 exam

Candidates need to earn Oracle Certified Professional, Java SE 7 Programmer credential and then pass the Upgrade to Java SE 8 Programmer 1Z0-810 exam to earn Oracle Certified Professional, Java SE 8 Programmer credential.

You can pass the Exam Upgrade to Java SE 7 Programmer 1Z0-805 to earn Oracle Certified Professional, Java SE 7 Programmer credential and then upgrade to Oracle Certified Professional, Java SE 8 Programmer credential by passing the Upgrade to Java SE 8 Programmer 1Z0-810 exam"



Have you changed your opinion in 3 days?

We can certify us what we already have certification in Java SE 6 (1Z0-851)?

Seems they did!

I would create a follow-up on your service request (using the same SR number) and ask for clarification as you were told it isn't possible but only a few days later you have noticed several replies stating the opposite.

Kind regards,
Roel

Of course, the exam details are already available. I assume authors who wrote an OCA8 study guide will also write one for OCP8 to complete the certification path. And probably the famous K&B7 will get a follow-up as well.

She's still working on the OCPJP7 study guide. So if she will be writing one for OCAJP8 as well, it won't be for the near future.

Hi,

Sorry for waking up this old thread but wanted to know if there is any change in upgrading from Java SE 6 OCP to Java SE 8 OCP? I am Java SE 6 OCP and wanted to get Java SE 8 OCP but not sure about the pre requisite for SE 8. Also if anyone can please post the link to Oracle certification site for SE 8 OCP, not able to find any info about it on Oracle web site.

Thanks,
Amit
