    With Java EE moving to Jakarta EE what will happen to all the Java EE related certifications offered by Oracle?
  • Brandye Barrington Thursday, August 30, 2018
    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!

    I'd like to do this exam but I don't find books about it. It is a very strange thing. Books related to Java OCA and OCP exams are already available, but no books about it.
    I obtained 1Z0-808 and 1Z0-809 certifications thanks to books published by Oracle Press, Apress and Sybex.
    Please, can you tell me an exam guide related to this exam?

    Thanks a lot!

    Will Oracle ever introduce Oracle Certified Master, Java EE 7 Architect certification? I noticed that the learning path for Java EE 7 Architect / DevOps Engineer (https://education.oracle.com/learning-paths/lPathCol_SADJ_col_4) are available in Oracle University.
  • Brandye Williams Barrington Thursday, July 11, 2019
    Unfortunately, I don't have any information at this time on an EE 7 Enterprise Architect Master certification. I'll do some digging and try to find something out.

    Hi Adri,
    I recommend that you contact your peers in the Oracle Certification Community https://community.oracle.com/community/groundbreakers/certification for book recommendations.

    Sorry for the delay in replying.

    I checked further on EE 7 Enterprise Architect and this is the response I received.

    We don’t currently have plans for such a certification, but we are currently exploring ways to recognize today’s more vast array of advanced developer skills.

    Thank you very much for the clarification, Brandye.

    Looking forward to hear from Oracle regarding these recognition and certifications.
