New CCA 175 certification 2020

New Contributor

Hello,

 

after 2 months of preparation i scheduled my exam for this month.

 

However, when checking the certification page now, Sqoop, Hive and Flume are not mentioned anymore. Only Spark is there.

Is this correct? Although Sqoop is not mentioned, the example question video still uses Sqoop as an example.

 

Regards,

Hello,

The exam that I am referring to is CCA175.

You mention that in the simplified new environment, there are no text
editors but that there are multiple interactive shells to do the work.

The video doesn't mention if I can open more than one shell at any given
time. Please could you confirm whether I can have two shells open at the
same time or not.

Thank you.

Can you find someone within your multi-million dollar turnover company that could assist me with this?

 
It really is a simple question. I just want to know if I can have more than one shell/ terminal open at the same time.
 
One would for spark-shell.
One would be for hdfs commands.
One for using nano or vi.
 
That is 3 shells/terminals open at the same time.
 
Why it so difficult to find this out?

ello, the video you have linked does not work! Can you clarify what the "new" exam environment will be like?

 

Do we have access to eclipse & sublime text?

Do we have access to multiple instances of terminals?

Hello,

 
The response that was given was essentially the exam FAQ. I think you guys must think that it coveres any and all questions that can be asked. But it does not!

Just got back the following response which suggests that the "New" exam environment will let us have more than one terminal open:

 

Users can click the terminal's "File" menu, at which point they will see options at the top for opening a new terminal window or a new terminal tab in the same window (it's a matter of preference as to which users should do, but both result in a new shell).

 

Additionally, for the advanced user, the environment should have both the screen and tmux applications installed, which allow one to do terminal multiplexing in a single terminal session. The manual pages for those applications are also installed, so they can learn more about how they work by typing man screen or man tmux
