Im from India. I got a job in Cal and they started paper processing. However I now hear that the dotcom crash has seriously affected the java market and my prospective employer (consulting co.) too has cooled off not being very clear as to whether he is really going to take me or not.
I m SCJp with PG in engg. and over 3 yrs exp. in java good in server side prog.
Is java going downhill or can I expect to be positive ?

The market isn't bust but demand has dropped a lot and companies are closing and laying off. There are still jobs though available- Three years experience is very good. If you are in the US with H1 already and you are laid off, you will have no problem finding a job, probably no matter what happens in the US economy. Many companies prefer H1s over US citizens, especially if they are familiar with the INS processes.
Take care to know the rules and laws- and research companies- so you don't get a bad employer. For example, you should never be asked to pay for bonds, or sign contracts which penalize you financially for leaving the company. These tactics are sometimes used by "body shops" who route H1s via contract employment to regular established corporations, in order to scare you into staying on the job or meeting unreasonable work demands.
