I would like to ask the people which have experience with oracle certificates. I would like to take the ocp Java SE 7 Programmer II certificate which cost US$ 50. And here it comes my question do I need to have an Java SE 7 Programmer oca certificate in order to take the Java SE 7 Programmer II ocp certificate and which price is US$ 300. Cheers.
Hi, welcome to the forum!
Yes, in order to recieve the Oracle Certified Professional, Java SE 7 Programmer certification you need to pass both the 1z0-803 Java SE Progammer I and the 1z0-804 Java SE Progammer II.
You can take the 1z0-804 Java SE Progammer II exam before the 1z0-803 Java SE Progammer I but you won't recieve any certificates until you pass both exams.
Also, if you are already any version Oracle Certified Professional, Java Programmer or any version Sun Certified Java Programmer you can take only the 1z0-805 Upgrade to Java SE Programmer exam to recieve the Oracle Certified Professional, Java SE 7 Programmer certification.
