Long an acquaintance and ally of government institutions, open source is no longer considered rocket science by the enterprise.
Companies find open source attractive because they’re not tied to one vendor, can make improvements in the system at any time and realize cost savings, all helping boost market penetration. And, of course, there’s the benefit of communities continuously improving the products.
In the outside world, governments are strong sponsors of this type of initiative, especially in Brazil, where the use of free and open source software is encouraged to make the market more democratic. And, of course, the market has become increasingly more open to open source. While there were once concerns about the reliability, security, and functionality, those fears are all gone. Red Hat has made it possible to combine the benefits of these technologies with the necessary support for mission-critical environments, developing platforms and the specific demands organizations face.

Red Hat has just released a new certification in support of its JBoss Enterprise Middleware line. Red Hat Certified JBoss Developer (RHCJD) is earned by passing a rigorous, hands-on lab exam that tests one’s ability to write, extend and modify JBoss Enterprise Edition (JEE) applications that will run on the Enterprise Application Platform.
Ever since Red Hat acquired JBoss in 2006, there has long been a certain tension between testing and certifying the “JBoss-centric” versus the “spec-level”. RHCJD is where Red Hat puts a stake in the ground and offers what we believe will become THE certification for JEE spec-level programming. There is a growing vacuum of leadership in this space and we intend to fill it. RHCJD gives us a core credential upon which we will build and extend the JBoss certification program for developers.
