Sun Certification Now Integrated With Oracle Certification Program

Effective September 1, Sun certifications have been republished and re-branded under the Oracle certification program.

If you achieve a Java, Oracle Solaris, MySQL or OpenOffice certification after September 1, you will receive a new Oracle Certification title. If you are in the process of preparing for an exam, rest assured that the format and objectives of these exams will not be changing and your voucher(s), will still be valid through the expiration date and redeemable at If you are currently Sun Certified, your certification with the Sun Certification title, will be fully recognized under the Oracle program.

If you are considering a certification, wait no more! These credentials will continue to be some of the highest recognized achievements in the industry. Learn more!


Will the questions change as an effect of this transition? I have trained for Sun Certified Web Component Developer from Sun Education center so will that now be okay to clear the exam. Are the exam questions and patterns changing too?

Hi Shuddhashil - the exams have the exact same format (and objectives too). Although questions are always being revised, no new changes have take place between the former [Sun] processes and now.

Thank you Sir , I would be appearing for OCWCD exam next Sunday and I hope everything works well as my previous SCJP exam. I have prepared well and practiced a lot of mock exams and hope to clear it if the exam objectives and syllabus remains the same. Thank you once again sir.

Now that the Sun certifications have been integrated with Oracle certification program, will Oracle work on and ever release the Sun Java Programmer Plus Certification, which was declared by Sun Microsystems in mid-2009?

I was disappointed to notice that you only approve comments/ questions, which may have obvious and simple answers! :-( I posted a question on the release date of Sun Java Programmer Plus certification (declared by Sun in 2009), a couple of days back, which was neither answered nor appeared in this web page.

If you have already authenticated your CertView account, you should be able to go to, login and go to Certification Activity>Certifications achieved to view your Sun certifications.

If you are having trouble with this, please contact Oracle Certification Support
