The Java Programming Fundamentals Awareness benchmark measures your knowledge of the roles of the JDK, JRE, and JVM in Java development, as well as how to install Java on multiple platforms and how Java achieves platform independence. You will be evaluated on your ability to recall the primitive types available in Java and define variables of these types. A learner who scores high on this benchmark demonstrates that they have the skills to understand the basics and language features of Java and can define variables of primitive data types.
