The HDPCD:Java Exam

Our certifications are exclusively hands-on, performance-based exams that require you to complete a set of tasks. By performing tasks on an actual Hadoop cluster instead of just guessing at multiple-choice questions, Hortonworks Certified Professionals have proven competency and Big Data expertise. The HDPCD:Java exam consists of tasks associated with writing Java MapReduce jobs, including the development and configuring of:

combiners,
partitioners,
custom keys,
custom sorting,
and the joining of datasets.

The exam is based on the Hortonworks Data Platform 2.2 and candidates are provided with an Eclipse environment that is pre-configured and ready for the writing of Java classes.
