FAQ: When Can I Expect My Beta Results?

0399C1.jpg
Hi Everyone,

I really appreciate those who are willing to help contribute to our development process by participating in our beta exams. Although the betas are relatively inexpensive, they tend to be lengthy (many questions) and candidates do not receive their scores until after production.

I want to clarify a few things about the betas so that participants have a better understanding of the process.

First, our post-beta analysis of the exam questions requires detailed statistical reports, reviews, and analysis of the questions. Additionally - there are multiple reviews that require a team of Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) to be present. As a result, we plan approximately 11 weeks for the post-beta process - during which time the exam is not available for scheduling. Most of the time things run 'as-planned', and we finalize the exam and beta results/scores are sent to candidates. At this point the exam also goes "live" into production and becomes available for testing.

Unfortunately there are some instances where we are unable to complete this work in the 11 week time-frame and things can get delayed. For example, we currently have an exam where an important review has been rescheduled several times due to the changing availability of SMEs. We do communicate delays on our website, however sometimes (as in this case) it can be a challenge to ascertain an exact release date.

As difficult as it is, we strive to best communicate to you with information about these delays, beta status and expected release of beta exams. In the meantime - thank you again for participating in our betas. Your role is vital to the development of quality exams.

Java Enterprise Edition 6 Beta Testing

Hi Everyone,
0373B.jpg

An important follow-up to the recent announcement related to our re-branding of the Sun certification program. You may have noticed that there are several Java Enterprise Edition 6 certification exams in beta that were a part of the re-brand. These exams (and related credentials) became Oracle-branded exams on September 1. These beta exams are still available through September 30, 2010 and cost only $50 (significantly less than production price). Candidates who succeed in passing these beta exams will be the first to receive the Oracle certification credential for Java EE6.

The Java EE6 exam betas that are still available are:

  • CX-311-085 Java Platform, Enterprise Edition 6 JavaServer Pages and Servlet Developer Certified Expert Exam
  • CX-311-093 Java Platform, Enterprise Edition 6 Enterprise JavaBeans Developer Certified Expert Exam
  • CX-311-094 Java Platform, Enterprise Edition 6 Java Persistence API Developer Certified Expert Exam
  • CX-311-232 Java Platform, Enterprise Edition 6 Web Services Developer Certified Expert Exam
  • CX-311-086 Java Platform, Enterprise Edition 6 JavaServer Faces Developer Certified Expert Exam

Keep in mind that these exams will be available in beta only until September 30, 2010. After September 30 these exams will go offline for post-beta analysis.
