In the following article, the Java certifications
are not even mentioned. Is Java losing ground?

Doing a quick search for Java on their site yielded a few results. This is one by Marcus Green (I actually recall reading this a long time ago):

This magazine is certainly not very pro-Java. On the top of its certification hotlinks, there is none for Java.

The hot links on the site are related to purchasing real exam questions. In my opinion the value of a certification where real exam questions cannot be purchased is higher rather than lower.
I concentrate on obscure advanced certifications in my area of expertise, partly because they are obviously authentic.
