I have ordered couple of books from and never had a problem, i.e. recieved in the specified time frame. Last night I have ordered a book from www.overstock.ccom and will let you know about my experience. They don't have a very large collection as amazon or bookpool does, but one can look into it and may be find his/her required book/stuff.

Hi All,
I am new to OCP and decided to do my OCP-DBA 9i track few weeks back. I have just come to know that Oracle has introduced a new Hands-On Course requirement for those looking to become Oracle Certified Professionals (OCPs).
Following are my queries :
1) Is there any way to do my OCP 9i track without doing any hands-on courses?

First do 8i and then upgrade to 9i, thas how you can avoid the requirement

2) What If I give my first paper on 8i track i.e. Introduction to SQL and PL/SQL (1Z0-001) and then remaining 3 on 9i track?

you can do that but it will not exempt you from the course requirement.

3) Is OCA exempted from prior hands-on courses? What if I prepare for OCA? If I decide later to complete my OCP, Would I need to complete hands-on training first?

I dont have any idea abt this, its infact a nice question.

You can download the certification guide for JDeveloper from Oracle website. Here is the url:
I strongly recommend visiting the oracle site for all your queries before posting any Q's here. Also check this link also which say that these exams are retiring effective Jan 2003...

You can take either 1Z0-001 or 007, either can be counted towards OCA 9i.

Thanks Mike,
I have followed that link, which is for ME, but I have win98, and I have find the following lines in catalina.bat relevant to what you have referred in that post. It was line 140 and afterwards...
if not "%OS%" == "Windows_NT" goto noTitle
set _EXECJAVA=start "Tomcat" %_RUNJAVA%
goto gotTitle
set _EXECJAVA=start %_RUNJAVA%
Please take a few moment to look at it and tell me what needs to be done as you had win98 and I assuming you have installed Tomcat on it.
Thanks once again,

Hi Jyothi,
Welcome to this Forum, good to know that you are thinking of taking ORACLE certification.
>>>which is better Oracle 8i or Oracle 9i??
It's not the matter of better or worse, its just a new version of Oracle database, but with this upgrade, Oracle has introduce new tiers of certification. I you want to go for 8i (5 exams) you still have to give one more upgrade exams while for 9i there are only 4 exams, and after the fisrt two exams you will be OCA (O stands for associate).
>>>Is SQL & PL/SQL certifications common for 8i and 9i or different?
with this, do you mean the Exam 1Z0-001 (Intrduction to SQL and PL/SQL) ?, yes this is the first exam required for 8i or 9i, but in 9i you can also substitute it for 1Z0-007 (introduction to SQL).
>>>Is this forum used for discussing ORacle certification or any other forum available for ORacle certification discussion??.
Yes, this forum is also used for certification (though not heavily)
>>>Can somebody guide me for the preparation, books, faqs, mock exams etc??
Books ... well for my preparation, I used the Sybex study guide for OCP 8i and thats the only book I used and believe its enough for 8i(with the exception of Backup & Recovery exam).
Mock Exams: The best available in the market is from , , and for SQL exam from
FAQ: the best place would be to look at oracle site

Thamks Bodie ,
1) What windows version are you running?
I am using win98
2) Are you attempting to run Tomcat as a service or as a console app?
I have tried both way.
3) If console, then are you starting it with a mouse-click in the Tomcat program group on "Start Tomcat" or are you executing the batch file from the command prompt?
If I go through (clicking)Start(Menu)>Programs>Apache Tomcat 4.0>Start Tomcat, I got the following message
Starting service Tomcat-Standalone
Apache Tomcat/4.0.3
Starting service Tomcat-Apache
Apache Tomcat/4.0.3
but when I try to verify it by typing http://localhost:8080/ , I got the message Page cannot be displayed in my browser window.
2nd method
(I have already changed the setting inside the autoexec.bat by adding the following lines, c:\autoexec.bat now looks like this
REM [Header]
REM [CD-ROM Drive]
REM [Miscellaneous]
REM [Display]
PATH c:\j2sdk1.4.0\bin;%path%;
SET CLASSPATH=%CLASSPATH%;.;c:\j2sdk1.4.0\lib\tools.jar
SET path="C:\Program Files\Oracle\jre\1.1.7\bin";"%path%";
SET path="C:\Program Files\Oracle\jre\1.1.8\bin";"%path%";
SET Path=c:\Oracle\Ora81\bin;"%Path%"
I have also changed the environmental memory to 4096 and now there are two shortcuts in the folder c:Tomcat4\bin, and when click on the startup (shortcut or startup.bat) I got the following message
Using CATALINA_BASE: C:\Tomcat4
Using CATALINA_HOME: C:\Tomcat4
Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: C:\Tomcat4\temp
Using JAVA_HOME: C:\J2SDK1.4.0
Bad command or file name
3rd Method
On MS-DOS Command Prompt I have get the following response
C:\Tomcat4\bin>set JAVA_HOME=C:\J2SDK1.4.0
C:\Tomcat4\bin>set CATALINA_HOME=C:\TOMCAT4
Out of environment space
Cannot find
This file is needed to run this program
Bodie, can ypu please help me where I am wrong and what else should I do, before installing Tomcat I had also installed Apache web server and then Tomcat, but then unistall both and then install Tomcat4.x only.
Thanks and best regards,
