Will try 12c OCA also...:)

It seems that in this certification track we could expect OCP level for weblogic certification...
Am I right? ;)

But why Oracle still do not produce OCM level for FMW certification?
I'm talking not about java development or architect but FMW administration and architecture...

Or this is impossible to be an Master in such strange and diverse soup called Oracle FMW in principle? :))

We have to carefully evaluate for which certifications we will create a master-level certification. As with any new certification, we need to be fairly certain that the exam will reach a certain uptake threshold. This is especially true with the OCM exams because they are currently scheduled at Oracle University locations. If there is not enough enrollment in a scheduled event, the exam will be canceled, which can be frustrating for candidates who have gone through an arduous preparation process. At this time, we're not currently seeing sufficient demand to support a FMW OCM exam. Thank you for your interest though!

Hi Brandye,

>>we're not currently seeing

But which resources you are looking at?
Probably no path-no buzz? :)

Weblogic as Oracle Database is also one of the fundamental Oracle product on sofware&hardware landscape...

So why not to produce OCM Architect/Engineer track for Weblogic (includinng some java/some coherence/some CC12c/etc) ? ;)

Or DB is our everything, so will be...forever! :)))

WebLogic Server just does not have the numbers to support an OCM certification. I wish it were so, but the numbers are just not there.

How many Oracle software installation running with Oracle DB do not use Oracle Weblogic?
Price per proc is also comparable...:)

Definitely Numbers depends about how to consider... :)

Try to check, for example, linkedin group Oracle WebLogic Certified Expert moderated by Juergen Kress - there a lot of numbers if consider just a Weblogic direction and comparing to ocm profiles page - OCM DBA11g - 219/OCM EA5 - 68...

But yes, probably you are right and no Numbers there...:)
Thanks for your comments! :)

And by the way - ocm ea6 profiles page shown wrong banner/info/page.

I guess I did not explain the 'numbers' well. Since OCP is a pre-requisite to OCM. We have to have enough people certified on the OCP level to create OCM. OCP has not been released yet, but past WLS certifications have not proven that we can expect the OCP certification numbers to be enough to justify creating an OCM in WLS when the OCP is released.

I could be wrong, but I do not foresee an OCM-level certification being created for WebLogic Server.

If you discovered an error on the website, will you please provide the URL? I can take a look and get it fixed.

Hi Brandye,

OCM EA6 shown wrong banner and no profiles at all.
No one pass such certification? Where numbers here?

>I could be wrong, but I do not foresee an OCM-level certification being created for WebLogic Server.
I knew that and frankly speaking did not expect other :)

can you please differentiate the 1ZO-599 & 1ZO-133.

I already got the Oracle WebLogic Server 12c Certified Implementation Specialist and Oracle WebLogic 11g System Administrator (OCA).


Posted by ravi on July 07, 2014 at 04:21 AM PDT #

The specialist certification focuses more on implementation skills. The best way to determine the difference is to compare exam topics for the two exams. This will give you the best information.

Hi ,

I have 1 year work experience in weblogic. Can you please guide me what are the prerequisites for doing certification for weblogic Administartion.What type of certifications Am I eligible. Can I take the Oracle Certified Associate, Oracle WebLogic Server 12c Administrator directly without 11g ?? And I can take the Oracle WebLogic Server 12c: Advanced Administration II 1Z0-134 directly ?

Please mention clearly for which certification Am I eligible?

You can take the 12c OCA exam directly to earn the OCA certification. You will need to review the exam topics to ensure that you are comfortable with the topics before going into the exam.

Since the OCP exam is currently in beta at a discounted price, you can go ahead and take the OCP exam (134) and then pass the OCA exam after taking OCP. You do not have to take OCA exam first, but you will only receive your OCP certification once you have passed OCA and OCP exams.
