Hi guys, first off I would like to thanks a lot for making the learning Java 8 as simple as possible. I am going to appear for professional certification in Java 8 on 13th of May. Previously i had heard that after passing professional exam Oracle will provide an Identity Card and actual certificates delivered to our residence. But now i don't see any of such franchises in Oracle site. Have they discontinued it? Or we might get that for Master certification?

Unfortunately Oracle does not send hard copy printed certificates anymore to help protect the environment! But on the positive side: you can get a hard copy of an Oracle T-shirt

Ha! I guess they stopped printing them. For $245, I think you should get the option of being sent a printed one. That said, I find it quite humorous they use the environment as an excuse. I'm sure the real reason was cost-cutting and/or logistics.

Although I requested the hard copy certificate each time, I definitely won't miss it. Back in the Sun(ny) days, you even got a shiny lapel pin. That was really a nice "gift"!
I think I still have mine from Java 1.4... ok now I feel old

I have two: SCJP 1.4 and SCJP 5.0. Unfortunately both look exactly the same, it didn't include the Java version.
And for those wondering how such a lapel pin looks like...
