As announced on the Oracle Certification website
Java Architect, Java Developer, Solaris System Administrator and
Solaris Security Administrator certification tracks will include a new
mandatory course attendance requirement. Because of unforeseen disaster
and subsequent recovery efforts underway in Japan, Oracle has extended
the start date of this new requirement to October 1, 2011. Candidates
may earn their certifications using the current track requirements
(found on the Oracle Certification website) through September 30, 2011.
