Update on new OCAJP 11 - Java 9/10/11 Certification Exams

Now that Java 11 has been released, you might be wondering when Oracle will update the Java certification exams, which are still stuck on an old version of Java, i.e., Java SE 8. Well, we are interested in knowing as well!

So, we inquired Oracle about their plans on Java certification updates. Specifically, we asked them when will they be releasing the updated Java certification exams. They responded that new version of the Java exam(s) will not be ready until early 2019 and that candidates will be notified through their website if there is any update in java higher versions certification.

We tried to probe further by asking whether the updated Java Certification exams will be for Java 9 or Java 10 or Java 11. On that, their response was that they do not have any update on this matter yet.

The bottom line is, we have no idea what is going on. It's Oct already and it is only a couple of months to go for 2019. If they can't tell even the target Java version for the new Java Certification exams, we doubt they will be able to come up with the new certification exam in early 2019 because it takes more than 6 months to develop the new questions, run the beta, and roll out the production version of the exam.

If you are waiting for the new Java certification exams, then we would not suggest you to hold your breath.
