I started the exam on October 2009, and 364 days, 23 hours and 57 minutes later, I sent the deliveries with :

- Bodgitt and Scarper 2.3.1
- Locking using ReEntrantLock
- RMI
- a clear MVC pattern for Swing

I didn't have time to write every single line of javadoc, and 3 hours before sending it, RMI was not working

But I the end, it was OK.

Since october, I made a few interviews for new jobs and missions, and the "Oracle Master" factor in a world where everybody is an Expert is a huge plus - as long as you.... you know, say some commercial stuff, sell your soul to Oracle or cheat chat like that.

Thank you all for your responses !!!

I'm not sure if I got you right... do you think this is correct or not?

French joke, with irony and society critics
My opinion is that it's not because we are certified Master that we are Genius. The other idea is that some says there was the nice Sun and now the bad Oracle. Because we are now "guys from Oracle", it allows us to emphasis the fact that we are "Master" instead of people who just have taken some (precious) time to make a good job.

I have no problem to sell myself in an interview, and the Master title helped me. But sure, some don't like that and may prefer a more relative title.
And I'm pretty mixed about the bad Oracle.
