How to prepare for Java SE 11 Developer 1Z0-819 exam?

The latest news is that Oracle has announced a new Java SE 11 Developer 1Z0-819 exam. Along with that, they are also retiring the 1Z0-815 and 1Z0-816 exams, effective October 1st, 2020. So let us look at the exam details and preparation resources for this exam.

Exam Details

  • Time: 90 minutes
  • No of Questions: 50
  • Passing score: 68%

This exam costs less than the exams about to be expired, so that is an advantage.

Changes in Objectives

The new exam is apparently a combined version of the 1Z0-815 and 1Z0-816 exams. However, they have removed the following objectives.

  • Characteristics of Java (platform independence, backwards compatibility, etc)
  • Running a basic program from the command line (except modules)
  • Java Assertions
  • JDBC CallableStatement

You do not need to know how to use methods, such as Object.wait(), Object.notify() , Thread.join() , etc. Instead, you need to focus on Concurrency API.
