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'm glad I took the SCJP a month ago. It already costs almost twice as much as last year, now it's going to be even more expensive? Way to go Oracle.

And prometric sucks, if you miss an opportunity you have to pay the entire fee again to reschedule. OK, mistakes happen and you should pay for them, but the entire fee again? WTF?

Another fine example of greed is Spring certification, you have to take their class (I did, not the exam though) in order to be able to apply for the exam.
