Subject:uncertain future of Oracle MySQL exams [1Z0-871, 1Z0-872, 1Z0-873, 1Z0-874]

Hi

I am now responsible for LAMP applications. I worked previously with Oracle
11g.
It seems that those exams are an "easy win" for me. I guess my preparation
effort is about 60 hours.

1Z0-871 MySQL 5 Developer Certified Professional Exam, Part I
1Z0-872 MySQL 5 Developer Certified Professional Exam, Part II
1Z0-873 MySQL 5 Database Administrator Certified Professional Exam, Part I
1Z0-874 MySQL 5 Database Administrator Certified Professional Exam, Part II

My concern is about the future of MySQL and the MySQL certifications.

- it seems the exams didn't change since 2005
- Linux distributions ship MariaDB (not MySQL)
- Oracle Press don't publish an official study guide
- MySQL OCP exams are simpler than other OCP exams (for example Oracle 11g)

what do you think?
