  • I am afraid that you are out of luck here. As far as I can tell, Microsoft does not offer any certifications on Java.

    Perhaps you should ask at some other non-Microsoft forum. I suggest looking at Sun and Oracle:

  • Hi Kollikishore07,

    Alberto Poblacion is correct. You will never get Java training or certification from Microsoft. You will have to get that from Oracle instead.

    There is a very simple reason for this. Several years ago, Microsoft and the owners of Java (then Sun Microsystems) had a big falling out over Java which resulted in Sun suing Microsoft for $35 million in 1997. The lawsuit was finally settled in 2001, with Microsoft paying Sun $20 million, and being barred from receiving any new Java licenses from Sun.

    Since then, Microsoft and Sun have gone their own way, with Sun (now owned by Oracle) continuing Java development, and Microsoft developing its own "version" of Java which we now know as C#.

    That short history lesson was simply a prelude to the following. If you want Java certification, then you can get that from Oracle, the owners of Java. If you want an "equivalent" certification from Microsoft, then you'll be looking at certification in C# and the .Net Framework, which is offered by Microsoft in several different exams.

    I hope you found this information useful.
