Java SE7 Programmer II
The Oracle Certified Professional (OCP) Java SE 7 is a more advanced certification than ever before. It not only builds on all of the competencies incorporated into our new OCA Java SE 7 certification, but also includes new, advanced skills required of top-performing Java programmers. As a result of its new depth, the OCP Java SE 7 certification now requires you to hold the Associate level Java certification before you can achieve your OCP credential. Certified Java Associates can pursue the OCP certification by completing exam 1Z0-804.


Pre requisites:
Oracle Certified Associate, Java SE 7 Programmer (IZO-803)

Sort and search arrays and lists

String Processing
Search, parse and build strings (including Scanner,
StringTokenizer, StringBuilder, String and Formatter)
Search, parse, and replace strings by using regular expressions, using expression patterns for matching limited to: . (dot), * (star), + (plus), ?, \d, \D, \s, \S,\w, \W, \b. \B, [], ().

Java File I/O (NIO.2)
Operate on file and directory paths with the Path class
Check, delete, copy, or move a file or directory with the Files class
Read and change file and directory attributes, focusing on the BasicFileAttributes, DosFileAttributes, and PosixFileAttributes interfaces
Recursively access a directory tree using the DirectoryStream and FileVisitor interfaces
Find a file with the PathMatcher interface
Watch a directory for changes with the WatchService interface

Building Database Applications with JDBC
Describe the interfaces that make up the core of the JDBC API (including the Driver, Connection, Statement, and ResultSet interfaces and their relationship to provider implementations)
Identify the components required to connect to a database using the DriverManager class (including the jdbc URL)
Submit queries and read results from the database (including creating statements, returning result sets, iterating through the results, and properly closing result sets, statements, and connections)
Use JDBC transactions (including disabling auto-commit mode, committing and rolling back transactions, and setting and rolling back to savepoints)
Construct and use RowSet objects using the RowSetProvider class and the RowSetFactory interface
Create and use PreparedStatement and CallableStatement objects

Create and use the Thread class and the Runnable interface
Manage and control thread lifecycle
Synchronize thread access to shared data
Identify code that may not execute correctly in a multithreaded environment.

Use collections from the java.util.concurrent package with a focus on the advantages over and differences from the traditional java.util collections.
Use Lock, ReadWriteLock, and ReentrantLock classes in the java.util.concurrent.locks package tosupportlockfree thread-safe programming on single variables.
Use Executor, ExecutorService, Executors, Callable, and
Future to execute tasks using thread pools.
Use the parallel Fork/Join Framework
