The Oracle Certified Professional - Java SE 7 Programmer certification is the ideal certification for individuals who possess a solid understanding of Java programming language fundamentals. Rather than focus simply on the programming, this certification focuses on the application of the programming when designing and building Java technology programs. Object-oriented programming, application programming interfaces, specific Java system applications will also be covered.
The professional track requires a strong expertise, practical on-the-job experience, and the most current training available. Oracle offers candidates the chance to take up-to-date training courses that cover the full scope of the Java SE 7 programming certification. Participants can also upgrade their old or out-of-date certification by taking a special upgrade exam.
The exam for this certification is 1Z0-804 Java SE 7 Programmer II. It must be taken in conjunction with the 1Z0-803 Java SE 7 Programmer I exam, which, when passed alone, will earn you the Associate certification. The Programmer II exam requires a passing score of 65% with questions that will cover Java and Advanced class design, string processing, database application construction, object-oriented design principles, and localization.
