This week's book giveaway is in the Other Open Source APIs forum. We're giving away four copies of Storm Applied and have Sean Allen, Peter Pathirana & Matthew Jankowski on-line! See this thread for details.
I haven't been to this forum for quite a while and now I really want to take this certification.
I the meantime Sun had been bought by Oracle and now they, Oracle, want the exam takers to take one course and pay for it. I want to ask, is this really mandatory as I read on the certification website?
