The badge was highly overrated.

I looked at that link. What specifically explained the demise of the badge?

Ther was a discussion here, on Java Ranch about it.
Sun say that the paper certificate can be damaged by the badge

But on the other hand that badge is useless. Will you attach it during the interview? It would be funny

I too thought the badge was a little peculiar. I mean, really, where would you wear it.

I had this vision of all certified Java professionals wearing it once a year at Java One, sorta like war heroes wearing their medals on remembrance day, and then putting them away until the next conference.

I agree it was overrated, but I was annoyed when I felt that something which should come to me didn't come

and for the "demise" of badge, in that link scroll to "certificate enquires" and you'll find this :

What will the successful candidate receive in their certification kit?
All certification kits include the following*:
A Sun certified certificate with the candidate's name and certification title.
An ID card with the candidate's name and certification title.

* Due to damage that lapel pins were causing to certificates in shipping, Sun has discontinued Certification lapel pins as part of the certification kit .

So what about those people with:
SCJP, SCWCD, SCBCD, SCJD, SCEA?

Should they attach them all?
They would look like the generals

that piece of cloth on which they wear so many things wouldn't be reusable
