    With Java EE moving to Jakarta EE what will happen to all the Java EE related certifications offered by Oracle?

    Hi Koh,
    I don't have the answer to that question, but I'll see if I can get some insight.

    Do you recommend some book for this exam?
    I know Danny Coward's Java EE 7 - The Big Picture, Oracle Press.
    What do you think?

    Your best bet for getting book/prep recommendations apart from the OU training course we've provided, may be to visit Java Ranch and post your question.

    Oracle will continue to evaluate the needs for skill recognition of enterprise developers. For the immediate future, the EE 7 Application Developer exam represents skill in this particular technology.

    Hello, are there any sample questions for this exam?
  • Brandye Barrington Tuesday, October 30, 2018
    Unfortunately, there are no sample questions for this exam yet. There is also not an Kaplan IT Training practice exam yet (tho I believe one is being created).

    We do have an Exam Prep Seminar for this exam. You can purchase it online at this link below, or you can contact our Oracle University support team who can help you purchase.



    Good luck!
