Description gliesian 2012-07-10 11:35:36 UTC
I haven't fully figured this (enhancement) request out yet, but I'm thinking that it would be really cool to integrate the Oracle Java Certification Logos that are awarded upon passing certifications into the Java Files and or NetBeans Projects.

What probably makes the most sense is a place to put the logos into the Meta data of the individual projects.  This data would be generated with reports, or even better when queried through the interpreter (via a command line switch) or at runtime through the JVM as a system property.

Thanks for the consideration.

The benefit here is to show that certified Java developers worked on the project(s).

Hmmm... For this to be even better, Oracle should badge the logos with the passing candidate names.
Comment 2 Petr Somol 2012-07-10 14:30:53 UTC
I am not sure about how to integrate a Logo, which is a picture, into Java source, which is raw text. Even more serious consideration is the information value of such thing unless some sort of signing takes place. Adding a claim to project sources that they have been produced by certified engineers may or may not be trusted, unless some kind of authority can guarantee the claim. This would probably require support far exceeding NB infrastructure. I am afraid this idea is unlikely to gain support across those parties that would need to cooperate to make this work..
