    Take OCAJP 7 (1Z0-803) now or wait for OCAJP 8 (or similar)?

      I am planning to take the 1Z0-803 OCAJP 7 exam. But since JDK 8 has been released, I think Oracle will release the JAVA Programmer exam based on JAVA 8 soon.

       

      They might even plan upgrade from JAVA 7 to 8, but that will just cost extra money since JAVA 8 exams might be available soon.

       

      So, should I wait for OCAJP 8 & procure the latest knowledge (and the certification) or give the OCAJP 7 exam & wait for its upgrade to JAVA 8?

       

      Also any beta exams available for JAVA 8 that I should consider?
