Oracle Java SE 7 Programmer certifications gear up your knowledge in latest API /JSR changes and improves your career potential.
The Java SE 7 Programmer (OCAJP & OCPJP) is a professional certification program offered by Oracle. These certifications tests candidates program knowledge Java SE at lighter (in OCA) and deeper (in OCP) levels. The OCA Java 7 is an entry level certification in Java. It helps the programmer who can have the basic knowledge of the essentials of the Java programming language. To handle the looping constructs and variables, and does not cover specific technologies such as GUI creation, Web or network programming. This certification exam tests how well a programmer has understood the language constructs and verify skillset in Java technologies.
The OCP Java 7 is the next level programming certification that covers major changes/addition in Java SE 7. The interesting topics in this exams are Patterns, JDBC 4.0, Java NIO 2 and Exception Handling enhancements.
Why OCPJP is top recommended certification in Java?
The certification is must needed for any Java programmer/developer to prove their skills in reliable manner. It does not requires any mandatory course, so the cost of certification process is less when compared to certifications like OCMJD and OCMJEA. Another good news from Oracle is that the exam syllabus is divided into two different certifications, OCA (entry level programmer), OCP (advanced level programmer). One must complete OCAJP certification prior to attending OCPJP exam. Most of the other certifications requires OCPJP as the pre-requirement, so candidates can attend other certifications when they have OCPJP certification.

Certification Preparation Tips
To be success in Java certification one must have good knowledge in exam objectives. Identify top rated study material for the certification and check whether it meets the exam objectives.
The next step will be reading exam topics one by one with small programs. Note that Oracle changed exam pattern from theory knowledge to program/practical knowledge and you can expect lot of coding snippets questions than direct theory questions. You must write programs and analyze possible error/runtime conditions.
Practice with legal practice exam labs (search it in certguard.com) and identify your weakness. Do not purchase and use braindumps, they are strictly illegal.
I found that Java SE 7 OCA Training Lab and Java SE 7 OCP Training Lab are legal study guides offered by EPractize Labs. These are the guides currently available in the market and they are good in terms of study notes and mock exams. The products are very limited and works only in Windows, however you can run it in Linux/MAC OS by winreg or any other emulators.

How Best to Integrate Cloud Foundry into Your Existing Ecosystem By @Gidrontxt | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps
As someone who has been dedicated to automation and Application Release Automation (ARA) technology for almost six years now, one of the most common questions I get asked regards Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). Specifically, people want to know whether release automation is still needed when a PaaS is in place, and why. Isn't that what a PaaS provides? A solution to the deployment and runtime challenges of an application? Why would anyone using a PaaS then need an automation engine with workflow ...

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.

[session] Focusing on Time-to-Value in Big Data Deployments By @AndyWarfield | @BigDataExpo #BigData
As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...
