Difference between OCAJP 8 1Z0-808 and OCPJP-I 11 1Z0-815

Oracle has released new programmer certification exams for Java SE 11.

However, there has been a change in Certification Paths for Java programmer certifications. Earlier, there were two certifications that you could achieve by taking two exams -
  1. The Oracle Certified Associate (OCAJP) Java 8 Programmer certification (code 1Z0-808) and
  2. The Oracle Certified Professional (OCPJP) Java 8 Programmer certification (code 1Z0-809).

But now, Oracle has renamed the certification for Java 11 to Java SE 11 Developer certification. To achieve this new Java Certification, you still have to take two exams - Java SE 11 Programmer - I exam (Code 1Z0-815) and Java SE 11 Programmer - II exam (Code 1Z0-816). Earlier you would get an Oracle Certified Associate Certification if you passed the OCAJP 8 exam but now you will not get any certification if you pass just the OCPJP-I (1Z0-815) exam. You will have to take the second exam i.e. the OCPJP-II (1Z0-816) exam as well and then you will get just the one "Oracle Certified Professional Java SE 11 Developer" certification. So, if you want to get just one certification, you are still stuck at the Java 8 version i.e. OCAJP 8.

Enthuware will soon come up with study material such as books and mock exams for the new OCPJP 11 exams. So, stay tuned!
