Sun/Oracle Java Certification and How to Show It Off

February 9, 2011 By: Tori Wieldt
A couple JUG leaders inquired about their Sun Java Certifications. Here are the answers I got back from the nice people at Oracle University.

I'm a certified Java Developer. Is my certification with Sun or Oracle?

If you were certified on Java prior to Sept. 1, 2010, then you still hold a Sun-branded credential. The Sun branded credential is still 100% valid and fully recognized under the Oracle certification program. If you really want an Oracle-branded Java certification, you would need to upgrade to the latest release. For example, someone who holds SCJP 1.4 certification could upgrade to the Oracle Certified Professional, Java Programmer certification for Java SE 6. If you got/get your Java certification after Sept. 1, 2010, then it's a Oracle-branded certification. Visit the Oracle Sun Certification FAQ for more information.

Where can a get a certification logo to put on my business card or web page?
