I’ve often had developers ask me for something like this : Sun Developer Expert Assistance, a $99 /year per-incident support for:
– Java (1.4.2 & 5)
– NetBeans 5
– Creator 2
– Java Studio Enterprise 7 & 8
– Sun Studio 10 & 11
Now, of course, this is not consulting over the phone. Taken from the FAQ:
Will you write code for me?
No. This program will provide general advice and guidance on the use of APIs, functions, methods, product features and related programming techniques…
This has been a very successful pilot project (free of charge) for a few months now.
