Information Processing Society of Japan (IPSJ) has announced the Computing Curriculum Standard J07 which is compatible with the Computing Curricula 2005 (CC2005) Series proposed in the United States. Both J07 and CC2005 are composed of five major domains, CS, CE, SE, IS and IT, each of which is developed by a different community so that the relationship among these domains is not clear. In this paper, we analyze each body of knowledge (BOK) of the domains and map them into the ICT common body of knowledge (ICTBOK) which we have proposed in our previous paper. We also analyze Japan Information Technology Engineers Examination (JITEE) whose syllabus is published for each of 12 examination categories provided by the Japanese government. We estimate the degree of importance and the requirement level in terms of the 155 ICTBOK areas for each J07 domain and JITEE examination category by utilizing the mapping. Moreover we estimate the similarity and the difference among them. As a result, the relationship among J07 domains and JITEE examination categories is clarified.
