features.png or feathers.png?  Should likely be the same in the sentence and actual code?

Let’s take a look at some sample code that operates on a features.png file in the
/ostrich directory.  

print

For example, you might want to write an application that asks a user to log in and prints a success message.

They help you training and get used to pay attention to the right details.
I would not feel comfortable skipping anything, I would say.



Congratulations again Ilenia!  Thanks for sharing your experience on how to prepare when using the book.

Congratulations Ilenia!  

In your exam, do you remember seeing questions from each of the tables or just specific ones?  If you had to cram all over again for the same exact exam that you already took and looking back in hindsight, were they any specific areas from the book that you would now feel comfortable skipping?
Above Figure 6.9, I think that "package" should be plural and the a should be omitted:

We created a new packages to put in that module.


since the number of packages increase from 7 to 9.

Hi Ranchers,

I think I follow all the moving parts of Figures 6.6 and 6.7, but I have questions about how I should be interpreting (summary?) Table 6.7.

When Bottom-Up has "A project that depends on all others"  then it must have an "Unnamed module on the classpath".   I take that to mean that regardless of which phase 2,3, or 4, then chicken would be unnamed?  But, chicken is only unnamed for phases 2 and 3 and is named only in phase 4. Please clear my confusion here.  

When Bottom-Up has "A project that has no dependencies"  then it must have a "Named module on the module path".   I take that to mean that regardless of which phase 2,3, or 4, then egg would be named?  Obviously, this appears to be true here.

When Top-Down has "A project that depends on all others"  then it must have a "Named module on the module path.  I take that to mean that regardless of which phase 2,3, or 4, then chicken would be named?  Since it appears to be, I think that I have no issues with this one.  

When Top-Down has "A project that has no dependencies"  then it must have an "Automatic module on the module path".  I take that to mean that regardless of which phase 2,3, or 4, then egg would be automatic?  Obviously, egg is only automatic in phase 2 and 3, but egg is  named in phase 4 only. Please clear my confusion here.  (Additionally, who's to say that all phases would ever be attainable on a real world project?)

Yes.  It is completely (practically) pointless without also taking 816 before the end of the month.

Bruce Phillips wrote:I'm now using OCP Java SE 11 Programmer II Study Guide (really excellent book) to study the MANY 1Z0-816 exam subjects.  I'm only on Chapter 4 but feel overwhelmed by the huge amount of knowledge I'm expected to memorize to prepare for the 1Z0-816 exam.  If I read one more statement from the book "Memorize this table" (the table has 10 rows and six columns!) I might jump out my window.

I wonder how many people have taken and passed the Java 11 Part II exam



After reading this thread again, I noticed that the "Memorize this table" notation does not appear for every table.

To the point of feeling overwhelmed, for those that passed by using the Sybex 816 book mainly, do you actually advise that I "only" have to memorize the tables that specifically say "Memorize this table"?  Or rather, the tables where it specifically says "Memorize this table" are tables that  I should ensure that I have 100% recall on, in addition to the other tables that I may not have as much recall on but would obviously add value otherwise?  (I use Java 6 everyday for work, although I did obtain OCA 8.)  

While forEach() sounds like a loop, it is really a terminal operator for streams.  Streams cannot be used as the source in a for-each loop to run because they don’t implement the Iterable interface.  



edited Table 4.6 segment is attached

Additionally, I see here (and a different 809 book) that forEach() is a terminal operation.  Depends maybe? Is the quote and the highly edited Table 4.6 in contradiction with respect to forEach()?  Please help me clear my confusion.

Bruce Phillips wrote:Oracle should update this page:  https://education.oracle.com/oracle-certified-professional-java-se-11-developer/trackp_815 which still says the path to Java 11 Certification is to take and pass 1Z0-815 and then take and pass 1Z0-816.  There is nothing on the page about 815/816 being retired as of Oct 1 or of a new 1Z0-819 exam.



Correct.  However, from that site, the respective links show the info.
Campbell and Edmund,

You are correct.  I was thinking of the diamond operator without the formal type parameter, but that would not make sense in this context.  (I'm up against the Oct 1 clock.  Maybe this is a sign to wait for 819   )  Sorry.

Thanks!    
(Yes, I did check the Errata.)
The syntax for introducing a generic is to declare a formal type parameter in is angle brackets.

I took the 1Z0-815 and passed it in June, waited for Jeanne's and Scott's book to come out, and have started preparing for 1Z0-816.  But I won't be ready to take that exam before Oct 1.  

So now I'm stuck having paid for 1Z0-815 exam.  For me I'd rather take 1Z0-816 with its tighter focus then the 1Z0-819.  

It ridiculous and unfair for Oracle to penalize those people who have already completed the 1Z0-815 exam.  815 and 816 exams have not been out for very long.




Can you say that again?

(I just wanted to echo all your concerns ... if you haven't noticed.)

If you haven't already, please be sure to Complete A Formal Retirement Exam Extension Request.  Oracle must be made accountable for this (particular) horrible decision aware how their decisions impacts The Global Java Community.  If you are affected, please open the floodgates with these requests since it's likely they may only possibly operate based upon their own internal data if "enough" request come in.
