Both the "Oracle Certified Master - Java SE 6 Developer" and "Oracle Certified Master - Java EE 5 Enterprise Architect" certifications require successful completion of both a performance-based certification assignment and a written essay.

Candidates will again be able to purchase and submit assignments and essays on June 1, 2011.
