I have been an IT consultant for the past five years. During that time I've completed five assignments in four states - NJ, GA, FL, and OR. I'm a little tired of relocating every year, so I would like to find a thriving Java market. I know of the typical high tech centers of CA, NC, and NY. Does anyone know of less likely Java hotbeds?
Thanks,
Joe

Denver is hot. If you search dice.com for java gigs in different area codes, you will find ten times more in Denver than in SLC (a similar sized city).
I get about three recruitment e-mails a day in Denver.

Illinois and Chicagoland are good for Hot Java. There are more than 300 dot.coms here in the Silicon Praire, most with the typical J2EE, Java, Solaris, oracle architecture. I have a couple of openings posted here, plus more that I haven't had a chance to do so. Let me know what you're looking for

So far, I would say the best states have been New York and New Jersey. In particular, the following cities are best:
New York City(Manhattan: downtown: Wall Street district)
NJ: Morristown, parsippany, Princeton, Jersey City, and Newark.
Salary ranges have been as follows:
NY: Junior<->Senior:$60K-$160K
w/1 yr experience, its quite easy to obtain a $90K offer
NJ: Jr<->Sr: $50K-$100K

Cost of living is a lot higher than normal in those cities too.
Search on both of these sites using key words and cities and you can see for yourself where the jobs are plentiful!

I think Denver beats New York. I hear that Seattle pays even more than Denver. And the cost of living in Denver is lower than Seattle or New York.
 
A lot of people cry when they cut onions. The trick is not to form an emotional bond. This tiny ad told me:
