I have been working with Hibernate for a fews years now, and I want to solidify and demonstrate my knowledge by taking the Oracle JPA certification, also known as:
"Oracle Certified Expert, Java Platform, Enterprise Edition 6 Java Persistence API Developer (CX-310-094)"
There is a training course provided by Oracle:
"Building Database Driven Applications with JPA (SL-370-EE6)"
But this costs $1800 and I think it would be overkill for my needs.
Ideally, I would like a self study guide that will cover everything in the exam. I have looked for books and these seem like possibilities:
Pro JPA 2: Mastering the Java Persistence API (Expert's Voice in Java Technology)
Beginning Java EE 6 with GlassFish 3 2nd Edition (Expert's Voice in Java Technology)
But these aren't checklist type study guides as far as I am aware.
I found the official SCJP study guide very useful, but I think the equivalent text for the JPA exam isn't out yet.
If anyone has taken this exam, I would be grateful to hear how you prepared for it. Thanks!
