I am now an IBM Certified Advanced Application Developer – Lotus Notes and Domino 8.5September 21st, 2012
I recently passed the LOT-922 certification test (Developing IBM Lotus Domino 8.5.2 Applications: Advanced XPage Design). The test is a multiple choice test with 32 questions and a required passing score of 75%- I scored 90%.
Since I was already an IBM Certified Application Developer on Notes/Domino 8.5 the passing of the test upgraded my certification level to IBM Certified Advanced Application Developer - Lotus Notes and Domino 8.5.
I prepared for the test by reading the test objectives and by practicing using a practice test from CertFX. The test focuses on advanced XPages programming and covers the following areas:
- Building themes
- Extending the data sources
- Optimizing, troubleshooting and localization
- Using advanced Dojo controls
- Using XPages for mobile user interfaces
- Working with Java
Unfortunately, the test is already somewhat outdated in its focus on Domino Designer 8.5.2. So be prepared for that if you plan to take the test.
