Hi,
Is it still worth to give 1Z0-808 Java 8 exam ?
Does it hold any value in present scenario?
Regards,
Ashish.

Ashish,

It depends on your current Java version and your future Job changes. Most of the Java EE apps still rely on Java 8.

Note that Java 8 does not have module system feature. So, I prefer Java 17 Certification since it has major changes with sealed classes, records, text blocks, pattern matching and much more.

Visit our Java 17 Developer Certification Practice Tests course https://www.myexamcloud.com/onlineexam/1z0-829-java-se-17-developer-exam-practice-tests.course and take free tests.

If your goal is to get a cert as quickly as possible, the OCA 8 is a great choice because it is easier. If your goal is to show you are up to speed, the Java 17 cert is better.

Thank you guys for your reply.
Yes I feel the latest version of Java exam is tougher compared to the 8 version
There are lots of new concepts added in new exam. So does new exam has only one exam compared to two exams in the past?

Correct, starting with Java 11 there is no associate title.  It only takes one exam to get OCP certified.
