NEW CERTIFICATION: Oracle Certified Expert (OCE) - Java EE 6 Web Component Developer

Oracle Certification announces the release of the new "Oracle Certified Expert (OCE): Java EE 6 Web Component Developer" certification. This certification is for experienced developers of Java technology applications with the knowledge and skills to quickly build web applications suited to any Java EE 6 application server using JSP and servlet technologies.

Earning this new OCE certification requires passing a single exam - 1Z0-899 / "Java EE 6 Web Component Developer Certified Expert", as well as holding an existing Oracle Certified Professional (OCP) - Java SE 5 or SE 6 Programmer or Sun Certified Java Programmer (any edition).

Exam appointments are available now to take the "Java EE 6 Web Component Developer Certified Expert" exam at Pearson VUE testing centers worldwide. Visit pearsonvue.com/oracle and register for exam 1Z0-899.

Full preparation details are available on the Oracle Certification website, including all exam objectives, number of questions, time allotments and pricing.

[UPDATE December 13, 2011, 10:25 AM]

Please note that this exam and certification directly replace exam 1Z0-894 "Java Platform, Enterprise Edition 6 JavaServer Pages and Servlet Developer Certified Expert Exam" and the "Oracle Certified Expert, Java Platform, Enterprise Edition 6 JavaServer Pages and Servlet Developer" certification, which will retire on December 31, 2011. There is no change between exam 1Z0-894 and exam 1Z0-899, but rather is simply a update to the titles. Exam topics, recommended training, and exam items remain the same at this time.

If you have registered for exam 1Z0-894 for an appointment date after December 31, 2011, you will receive an  email from Oracle Certification Support by December 31 with further information and instructions. If you have already taken exam 1Z0-894, you will receive an email from Oracle Certification Support in January with more information. If you plan to register for exam 1Z0-894 after December 31, 2011, simply register for exam 1Z0-899 - you will not need to change your preparation plan.

I just compared the exam objectives and they are identical, so i wonder what caused Oracle to change the name back to its original Sun name?

On another front, dividing SC-BCD into OCE-EJB and OCE-Persistence was a good move. But i can't understand the reason to remove JSF certification. Is there any particular reason for this which might be worth sharing with public?

Hi Mohammad,
When these certifications were launched, Oracle implemented Sun's original plans to re-brand the EE 6 offerings, but we received a lot of customer concerns about the new branding specifically for the JSP and Servlets exam, and so we elected to change the title back to the more familiar 'Web Component Developer'.

Hello,

I am a registered customer. I have taken exam in Pearson VUE before.
I cannot see exam 1Z0-899 (Oracle) listed in Pearson, in order to purchase an exam from an OTC exam center.

Please advise me.

Posted by dimliakop on December 21, 2011 at 07:41 AM PST #

Hello Dimlaikop,
If you're trying to schedule an exam at an OTC, you will need to go to http://bit.ly/rDFgxh to purchase the exam. I hope this helps. Alternatively, you can call Oracle University for assistance http://bit.ly/14ivVR.

Hi,
I am interested for passing Java EE 6 Web Component Developer exam. I know about literature for Java EE 5 version, but I am wondering is there any official material that should be used for preparation of this exam

Posted by Bole on December 22, 2011 at 10:18 PM PST #

This time I am experiencing a big problem.
I cannot schedule exam 1z0-894, as PearsonVue says it is expired (actually it says that "No exam can be scheduled" when selecting a date after December 31, 2011)
Even worse, my scheduled 1Z0-894 exam for the Jan 2, 2012, was CANCELLED by Oracle. From Pearson VUE the consult me that the exam is not available due to Oracle problems with the systems.
What can I do? How long am I supposed to wait Oracle?

Please consult me.

Can you please tell us whether which book we should go through for this exam. Oreilly's Head first JSP and servelet Edition 2 is for SCWCD 1.5.
Will it be ok to go through this book as maximum topics will be the same or do we require new edition of this book.
You can also recommend books other then Headfirst...

Posted by guest on January 01, 2012 at 07:37 PM PST #

@Bole, the best preparation you can get for this exam is the recommended training mentioned on the exam page. This will best help you to prepare for this exam. As far as industry books, I'm not sure. you can post this question on our Certification Forum http://bit.ly/oDYL8C for more info. Our users there may have more information on this.

@Guest on Dec 30 - As you can see from the blog post above, the exam 1Z0-899 is a direct replacement for exam 1Z0-894. As mentioned, 894 retired on Dec 31 and 899 was released on Dec 31. If your email address is correct in your Pearson VUE profile, you should have received an email from Oracle, explaining that your 894 exam appointment would be canceled and that you'll need to now register for exam 899. Please note that this is the same exam - only rebranded. The topics and exam details are the same and preparation is the same. If you were prepared for exam 894, you will be prepared for 899. The only difference is that you will register for 899 rather than 894 and your resulting certification will be Web Component Developer. Good luck!

@Guest on Jan 2, I am not able to comment on 3rd party books. The Oracle Certification Program did not develop those books, so I am not able to provide any feedback on how relevant they are toward the exams. A good place to pose that question is to the community on our Certification Forum http://bit.ly/oDYL8C. They will likely have some helpful feedback.

Hi
i would like to buy the voucher for the exam 1Z0-899.
But neither i can locate this exam on PearsonVue nor on the oracle site.
can somebody help me to locate the same ?

Thanks.

Hi everybody,

Please what is the new name of the SCJP ? What is the code for this certification ?

thanks

Posted by Simon on January 09, 2012 at 03:36 AM PST #

The 899 exam is available to register for and pay for directly on the Pearson VUE website. You can purchase a voucher for this exam on the Oracle website at http://bit.ly/nl6IuP. I see that the exam is not yet listed in this list of exams that are a part of this voucher. We'll have that updated. This voucher will be valid for the 899 exam.

Hello Simon, The SCJP certification is now an Oracle Certified Professional Java Programmer certification. There are two different versions of this certification - SE 6 and SE 7. You can review the available certifications and requirements on our website here http://bit.ly/in5k.

Hi,
I am certified with SCJP 1.4 (310-035).
I am planning for SCWCD but confused of which Exam I should choose
J2EE5 platform (1Z0-858) of J2EE6 platform(1Z0-899).
I am okay & ready for any of this exam.

Can anyone guide me that am I eligible for Exam 1Z0-899 on J2EE6?

Thanks

Posted by guest on January 16, 2012 at 03:52 PM PST #

This is largely a personal decision - do you want EE 5 certification or EE 6? Exam 899 will take you to the latest version of certification - EE 6. It is probably best to have the latest version of certification, unless for employment purposes, you need EE 5.

Hi Karima,
You can check on our Certification Forum http://bit.ly/oDYL8C if anyone has suggested a book for this exam. I'm not sure that there is anything available. However, the Certification Forum would be the place to ask.

Hi,

I passed the exam 1Z0-894 "Java Platform, Enterprise Edition 6 JavaServer Pages and Servlet Developer Certified Expert Exam" in 2011 December, and already received the certification kit, with the old long name.

Do you send me the new certification kit with the new title
"Oracle Certified Expert (OCE): Java EE 6 Web Component Developer" automatically?
Or should I ask a replacement and pay for it?

Regards,
Peter

Posted by Peter Borbely on February 16, 2012 at 12:23 AM PST #

Hi Peter,
You should have received an eCertificate at the email address in your Pearson VUE profile. If you did not, please contact Oracle Certification Support http://bit.ly/f39Dny and they can assist in getting you a certificate with the new title.

Please also check your account at certview.oracle.com to be sure that both certification titles show up in your profile there. If not, please also have Oracle Certification Support help you address that.

Posted by Ravi on March 07, 2012 at 03:13 PM PST #

Hi Ravi,
You can find all the information you need on upgrading to the Oracle Solaris 11 certification on our website here http://bit.ly/u6NsbM.

No one will provide you dumps from this site. Using dumps is cheating. Be warned that if Oracle discovers a candidate has cheated on his exam we will take action. You could lose your certification and be banned from further Oracle testing. Don't use dumps. They do not teach you how to be a good System Administrator.

Hi, I was wondering about the Topics that were in the previous exam J2EE 5 WCD and has been removed from the new one. I've read the exam topic for both of them but the phrases are general as you know if there were actual topics that are no longer discussed or even classes been deprecated and won't be on the exam it would be very helpful and time savior.

Posted by ankita on April 17, 2012 at 09:11 PM PDT #

It really depends more on if you are interested in EE5 or EE6. There is no difference in benefits or levels between Professional and Expert.

Hi,
I want to give the 1Z0-899 exam. And, I am an Oracle Employee I have heard there is an discount for Oracle Employees, but when i am trying to buy the voucher i cannot see any option for us. Also, i have already given OCJP 6.0 earlier that time i had no idea about discount for employees.I hv heard some SSO login might have created which might have OCJP certification kit in it but i dont know about it. shall i need to figure out the OCJP login or shall i use Oracle's SSO login for this new certification??

Posted by guest on November 06, 2012 at 08:29 AM PST #

1. If you do not already have a Pearson VUE web account, you will first need to go to pearsonvue.com/oracle and create a Pearson VUE web account - using your previous Oracle Candidate ID (Prometric ID if you took your prior exams there).

2. Once you create your Pearson VUE web account, wait approximately 48 hours and then go to certview.oracle.com to authenticate your account - you will need information from your Pearson VUE web account to authenticate your CertView account, then you will login to CertView using your SSO. This is where you will see your certification history.

3. You can request your employee discount voucher at my.oracle.com>Lines of Business>Oracle University>Certification>Get Certified>Employees - scroll down and you'll see the link to the request form.

Hi,
Is there a possibility to have SCWCD CERTIFICATION before JSE certification?

Posted by guest on November 15, 2012 at 08:35 AM PST #

For Oracle Certified Professional, Java EE 5 Web Component Developer and Oracle Certified Expert, Java EE 6 Web Component Developer, a Java Programmer certification is required. So, no - it is not possible to get OCWCD without first having the Java Programmer certification.

Brandye Barrington

Posted by Brandye Barrington on November 15, 2012 at 12:51 PM PST #

Hi,

I completed my SCJP5.0 in 2007. Would like to know, if that is valid and enough to appear for OCPWCD exam.

Thanks

Posted by guest on December 20, 2012 at 10:20 AM PST #

Any earlier version of Java Programmer will fulfill the pre-requisite for the Web Component Developer certification. Just be sure that you create your Pearson VUE web account using your earlier Prometric ID (which will now make it your Oracle Testing ID). If, for some reason, Pearson VUE assigns you a new Oracle Testing ID (it would be a number starting with 'OC'), you will need to request to have this ID merged with your Prometric ID so that all of your records will be under the same account.

If all of your records are not under the same account, the database will not recognize that you have, indeed fulfilled the pre-requisite and will not grant your certification.

Brandye Barrington

Hi,

As the name of 1Z0-899 is Oracle Certified Expert, does it mean that this exam is more harder than the 1Z0-858 exam?

Posted by guest on January 28, 2013 at 03:41 AM PST #

No, we just re-categorized these certifications under the 'Expert' label rather than the 'Professional.' They fit a little better in that space. Expert certifications are niche certifications that don't easily follow the standard OCA>OCP>OCM hierarchy.

Hi,

I have a couple of Sun Java/J2ee certs.

I have the SCWCD 5 from SUN.
There is an upgrade path from SCWCD (any version) to Oracle Certified Professional, Java EE 5 Web Component Developer.
There is NO upgrade path from SCWCD (any version) to Oracle Certified Professional, Java EE 6 Web Component Developer.
WHY ?

I have exactly the same issue with the upgrade from SUN SCBCD (EJB 2.X) to Oracle Certified Expert, Java Platform, Enterprise Edition 6 Enterprise JavaBeans Developer
Once again, there is no upgrade path. There is one to 5 but this is it.
WHY ?

The only upgrade paths in the most recent streams (Java 7 or J2EE 6) that I can still see are from:
- SCJP any version to SCJP 7
- SCEA any version to Architect 6

It is a lot of time time and money too to prepare and pass these certifications...
...including preparing an upgrade.
Not all the companies and certainly not mine pay for this.

Are the upgrades basically gone?
There is no more rebate like in the SUN time for the upgrades. Why?

I think that it is good for the industry and for Oracle to have a healthy community of J2EE certified people and the the price and upgrade structure should reflect this.

Thanks (Oracle or other) to provide your comments on this.

Olivier

Posted by guest on March 07, 2013 at 08:47 AM PST #

Hi Olivier,
I think the confusion is that there is a specific upgrade exam for EE 5, but there is no specific upgrade exam for EE 6.

For Web Component Developer, you would simply take the 899 exam. You had to have the SCJP in order to obtain your SCWCD certification, so the prior certification requirement is filled. Now you just need to take the 899 exam to obtain the EE 6 version of Web Component Developer.

For the EE 6 JavaBeans Certification, you will simply pass the 895 exam. You should have the SCJP prerequisite, so the next step would simply be to pass the exam.
