OCAJP Java 7 Certification Preparation

Java SE 7 Programmer Associate Certification Preparation

Difference between SCJP and OCAJP
SCJP (Sun Certified Java Programmer) is the certification name previously referred by Sun Microsystems for Java 6 and prior versions. The certification has been re-published and rebranded after Oracle takeover Sun Microsystems. There will be only one program level certification for Java prior to Java 7 but after Java 7, Oracle introduced two certifications.

  1. OCAJP (Associate Level Java Program)
  2. OCPJP (Professional Level Java Program)

Note that OCAJP is the pre-requirement for OCPJP. One must complete OCAJP prior to taking OCPJP (old name SCPJP).

Knowledge required to clear OCAJP exam
The exam requires basic Java Knowledge of Java data types, strings, arrays, loop constructs, methods and encapsulation, inheritance and exceptions. Complete Java 7 knowledge may not be required for this exam; however it is required to attend next level exam (OCPJP).

Exam Topics
Topic1: Java Basics
Topic2: Working With Java Data Types
Topic3: Using Operators and Decision Constructs
Topic4: Creating and Using Arrays
Topic5: Using Loop Constructs
Topic6: Working with Methods and Encapsulation
Topic7: Working with Inheritance
Topic8: Handling Exceptions

Cloud Object Storage is effectively infinitely scalable and boasts the lowest total costs. But cloud SLAs and T&Cs are traditionally optimized for huge customers like Netflix, so applications demanding better confidentiality or higher availability typically can’t reap the benefits of public cloud storage.

There is an ever-growing explosion of new devices that are connected to the Internet using “cloud” solutions. This rapid growth is creating a massive new demand for efficient access to data. And it’s not just about connecting to that data anymore. This new demand is bringing new issues and challenges and it is important for companies to scale for the coming growth. And with that scaling comes the need for greater security, gathering and data analysis, storage, connectivity and, of course, the...

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...
See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure. Storage performance in a virtualized environment is not just about IOPS, it is about how well that potential performance is guaranteed to individual VMs for these apps as the number of VMs keep going up real time. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, in product and marketing at Tintri, will discu...

Many private cloud projects were built to deliver self-service access to development and test resources. While those clouds delivered faster access to resources, they lacked visibility, control and security needed for production deployments.
