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.

Exactly how is Java high-end?
Oh wait, it does hog all your memory, is unnecessary complex and makes you long for the clarity of Perl scripts. It's got "Enterprise" written all over it.

It's high end in the context that nowadays almost all new software being written on the IT world is either Java or .Net based.

The multinational consulting company I work for, only gets projects in other languages, as "legacy" projects.

I always wonder about that... what argument is there for only going down the Java and .Net road ?

Only thing I ever hear is that there otherwise scared that they cannot find personal to work on the project.

Which is not a very strong argument if you want quality personal anyways, if your looking only for code monkeys then maybe...
