I have a simple question: With ever evolving Java landscape, we have landed into the era of Lambda Expressions and Modules now.
How this book can help to learn JDK8/9/11 concepts for exam perspective, and in general?

R.J. Arzki wrote:Hi Hanumant,
First of all, welcome to the ranch.
I think you get this sort of question a lot, but anyway, here it is. I am in the middle of my study to take the OCPJP8 exam (already have OCAJP8). Would there by any reason for me to switch right now and take the exam for OCPJP11? If one looks for study material for the exam, there are a lot available for Java 8, but not so much for Java 11. So, my reasoning right now is to take the OCPJP8 exam now and upgrade at a later date, maybe even to a higher version of Java. What are your thoughts?

I got OCA Java 8 (1Z0-808) with a passing score of 100% (based on Jane&Scott's book and on Enthuware mock exams, so thank you Hanumant). Then I read Jane&Scott book for OCP Java 8, bought the Enthuware mock exams for OCP Java 8 and now need some time to practice (but I will have only a few time in the 2-3 coming months).
What do you recommend ?
a) passing OCP Java 8 (1Z0-809), then the upgrade from Java 8 to Java 11 (1Z0-817) ?
b) restarting from OCPJP-1 SE11 part 1 (1Z0-815), then passing OCPJP-2 SE11 part 2 (1Z0-816) ?
c) other alternative ?
Hello Mr Deshmukh,
I am midway through preparing for OCJA exam with Java 8 when i saw this book release email. Do you recommend i do the Java 11 exam instead ? or should i just finish OCJA and then maybe plan an upgrade .
Valentin Mikhailov wrote:Hello Hanumant, congratulations on the book!
1) Do you have plans to make a book for those who are planning to upgrade from OCP8 to OCP11, or OCP Oracle Certified Professional Java SE 11 would be fine for upgrade exam?
2) Will I need some other resource to study such topics like "Modular Application" because I haven't used them in practice, or your book covers all topics well enough and reading it would be enough?

I am a java 7 se certified programmer, has your book a path for an update certification to java 9?

As the title states, I'd like to know your personal opinion on this new development where the OCA is seemingly being phased out and the only certification is the OCP?
I am only at the start of my journey studying for the 1Z0-808, so my own opinion will definitely be less informed. The biggest gap in my knowloedge for now would be what the specific differences are between the OCA8 and OCP11 (or what objectives are added).
Nonetheless I believe it to be a good thing. This way going forward employers can be sure that certified students are proficient in each and every aspect of the Java language and not just the fundamentals. On the other hand I myself am now taking advantage of the system where I can get the 1Z0-808 and if I want to in the future I could take the upgrade exam.

How would you suggest is the best way (in addition to your book) to prepare for the OCPJP?
What online and/or instructor-led training can you recommend (outside of Oracle's Training, which would be an obvious choice)?

I passed OCA7 before,
but failed to meet the deadline for OCP7 because of other stuff.
I would like to avoid this with OCP8, and just go for OCP11.

I m working in a project using JDK 12 and also will study to OCP 11 EXAM. I wondering If I could use the JDK 12 for both goals.
Hanumant Deshmukh congratulations on new book "OCP Oracle Certified Professional Java SE 11 Programmer I Exam Fundamentals 1Z0-815" .
Regards and I wish you success.

Do you think you could work with Enthuware to offer some discount on the Enthuware mock exams?

I am a Java architect that has Oracle database development and tuning background. Is your one book sufficient to pass the exam or do you suggest any additional material/labs?
Geff Chang wrote:In the Amazon site, I noticed that Hanumant's book mentions Enthuware. Is Hanumant related to Enthuware in some way, like as part owner or contributor to the mock exams?
Is there a partnership with Enthuware, where book buyers get a discount on Enthuware?

First of all welcome to the ranch and thanks for delivering this valuable resource for Java Certification training.
I'm an ORACLE Certified Professional Java SE 8 programmer and I'd like to make the upgrade to Java SE 11 certification, so I'd like to ask you the follow questions:
1. Which of the Java SE 8 exam topics do you think have experimented major changes in the new certification for 11th edition?
Esteban Suarez wrote:
2. Considering the fact that Java SE 11 is the major release after Java SE 8, which of the topics related to new features introduced from Java 9 do you think require a deeper learning and understanding considering exam goals?
