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.

When they mostly stuck to databases, that was certainly true - they made a pretty good one, and someone certified in administering and tuning it was worth a premium.

Since they started going all expansionary and buying other companies left, right and center, not so much. The core database is still pretty well respected, but regard for their acquired products (from Sun, from BEA, etc) has certainly suffered.
