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've been meaning to do SCJP for some time, just for the hell of it, but it seems unlikely now, as I'd struggle before Aug 1st.

According to the article and the notice on Oracle's certifications page (http://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?p...), the changes regard Developer and up, and hence SCJP is unaffected.

That said, I really fail to see how they hope to profit from this move. I certainly wouldn't go for an SCJD now. I wasn't happy about the news of Oracle acquiring Sun, and nothing they have done until now proved my premonition wrong.
