Java Later this year, Oracle will begin requiring people interested in gaining Java and Solaris certifications to attend "hands-on" training courses, at an additional cost of thousands of dollars. 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.

I remember a time that the mere mention of Oracle in the IT shop was almost godly. People aspired to be Oracle certified and everyone liked Oracle products. Oracle was the company to look up to with a lot of respect and admiration. Now it seems they are rapdly becoming the technology to avoid. Oracle is seemingly becoming a bad word in the IT shop. Phrases such as "stay far from Oracle products" are becoming more common. I wonder if Oracle even cares about the reputation they are currently shaping of themselves in the IT world.
