Operating System and Environment for CCP: Data Engineer Exam (DE575)

[ Edited ]

 

For my prep and practice, I am currently using JDK 1.8.0_45 running on Ubuntu Trusty (14.04) - Long-Term Support (LTS) 64-bit

 

However, for the exam, it is not specified which operating system we will be using.

 

CDH 5.3.2 supports Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.5, CentOS 6.5, Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.

 

Do we get to pick which operating system we want to use?

 

I would prefer to use Ubuntu Trusty (14.04) for the exam.

 

Also JDK 7 has reached its end of life. The recommended version from Oracle now is JDK 8 and I am using JDK 8 in my practice enviroment.

 

Can my 7-node cluster be set up with JDK 8 as well to minimize surprises during the test?

 

A prompt response would be highly appreciated.

 

Thank you for your help.

The exam environment is CentOS 6.6 and only includes Java 7.  We hadn't considered adding Java 8, but I'll add it as a feature request.

Re: Operating System and Environment for CCP: Data Engineer Exam (DE575)

In CCP Data Engineer exam, java is not listed in programming languages but jdk is listed in the environment. Can I take the exam in java language?
