I have a few questions about the Oracle certification process. It seems to me that Oracle is currently changing a lot of the certification requirements and I am just trying to get an understanding of it. The first thing I am interested in is the "Oracle9i Application Developer Certified Associate" designation. From what I can see two exams are required for this - #1Z0 007 and #1Z1-147. Does anyone know of any good books which are taylored to these exams? Most books out there seem to be for older exams. Also what are my choices for some kind of Developer Professional designation? It seems as though the Java certifications have all been discontinued. Will there be new Java certifications? What about Forms developer for 9i? In either case will the Associate level exams I mentioned above be required for most professional level certifications? Thanks to anyone who can provide info.
