The new rule goes into effect Aug. 1 and regards Java Architect, Java Developer, Solaris System Administrator and Solaris Security Administrator certification paths, according to a notice on Oracle's website.

Many organizations see certification as a way to build a large pool of qualified talent to support their software products.

Oracle sees certs as a revenue stream. Just check out how much it costs to become an Oracle-certified DBA. With Oracle it's all about enhancing their revenue, and as far as the viewpoint of the IT talent goes, well, that's just not a consideration.

Before you invest your time and money in beginning Oracle certification you might well consider this.
