Thanks, but no surprise there :-) Though, I haven't figure out how to take full advantage of JShell ... Maybe your book can help there.

Hello Cay,

While writing this book, which topic you enjoyed most? Which one is your favorite feature and why?

Hello Cay S. Horstmann,

Most welcome and glad to see an updated copy of your book in 2018. I am a big fan of yours, already read Java SE 8 for Really Impatient, Scala for Inpatient and Core Java Volume 1 and 2.

Thanks for creating such awesome books.

Hello Rozeto,

Ideally, within 60 minutes of passing the exam, you will receive email alert saying that your exam result is available in certview.  If it's not I think you should contact to Oracle certification support.

I really hope that they could have provided a flag in Arrays.sort() but how about creating your own method by reversing logic of any of Arrays.sort() method? All you need to change is the swapping logic, isn't it?

Here is a list of 10 free Java eBooks, you can choose what you like but my favorite one is Java application development on Linux.

Yes, thanks. Unfortunately Beta exam is also over now and it is on post beta state, after 10 weeks it will be available in production.
Hello Hemant,

It's not mandatory, but unfortunately Beta Exam is already closed on November 15, 2014, so you have to wait until it is available after post beta.

Remember, 1Z0-808 is associate exam, so if you want you can also give OCAJP SE 8, not sure if it has launched yet or not.


Hello Sunit,

What Pawel said is right. You will learn more if you follow his guidelines.

To answer you question, Boolean.valueOf() returns boolean value true or false if the string argument is not null and is equal, ignoring case, to the string "true".

Since you are passing "True", it will return true each time. Now ternary operator will return first argument if condition is true, so it will return "bye"

In short, it will print "byebye"
I think OCPJP Beta for Java 8 is already out, which was announced couple of months ago on twitter by @OracleCert. You can see it here

I think automatic resource management is very important features, one make your code more robust.

If don't hold any Oracle or Sun certification e.g. SCJP 1.5 or SCJP 1.6, then yes you need to pass OCAJP before appearing for OCP. See here as well
