Hello Everyone !
After hearing about the sudden slip of Java and the demand for it , i'm a bit worried about the future of Java all its accessories. Please explain me what is currently going on at the US Market. I'm really really tensed.
Regards, Swamy

Awesome! Never better.
Java is a language that computers talk. When computers die,
(Microsoft dies first)Java dies. My philosophy anyways.....
I am moving this discussion to the javaranch forum.
Pl. continue there.
Hopefully, you don't mind.
ps:
I am not one of those Anti-MS persons. I really really think
they did a great job.

This sort of stuff really belongs in "Jobs Discussion", so I've moved it.

Hi,
The java market is pretty bad on the consultancy front.Scores of guys are getting layed off. I was a recent casuality of the layoff along with 5 more guys. As of now, java is on the downside i feel. Correct me guys if iam wrong.

Just ran across "Java jobs easy to find; skills hard to come by"
<A HREF="http://www.javaworld.com/javaworld/jw-02-2001/jw-0209-itw-javajobs.html<br rel="nofollow">" TARGET=_blank>http://www.javaworld.com/javaworld/jw-02-2001/jw-0209-itw-javajobs.html

Summary: "Analysts predict that demand for Java programmers will continue to grow at an impressive rate, led by Java's cross-platform and productivity features. Java, however, may be a victim of its own success as training bottlenecks raise costs and lower quality. (1,000 words)"

Swaminathan:
I recommend that you follow the unsubstantiated rumors that you have read and immediately change your emphasis to learn COBOL and RPG instead of Java. Java is dead and vestigial languages like COBOL ("COmmon Business Oriented Language") and RPG ("Report Program Generator") are making a comeback.
Those are the languages that you shoud learn.
That was a JOKE !

Agreed that Java is the new language and supposed to be doing wonders.
But it is a fact that Cobol and RPG are the languages on which most of the established business in the US have been using for over 2 decades and even use it now for Business application.(Inspite of having JAVA)
Srini,
