I am a Java programmer and I have one year experience in Java (part time). I passed SCJP last week. I know servlet and EJB. I graduated a few days ago with a MS in computer science. Do anybody know what kind of salary I should ask for?

Jun,
It depends in part on where you live. You might check Gamelan.com's archived salary information here for information on your particular area.
Sounds to me like if you have an MSCS and a year of experience with hot Java technologies like EJB and Servlets, you could ask for at least the average going rate. Someone correct me if this is not right.
If I could ask, how did you get Java experience part-time? I'm looking for part-time work too.
