hello all,
it might be repetative thing for you but its really a worrying thing for me.
i am an engineering student from of engineering india in my final semister.
the time i started my project (august 2000) there was a real boob for servlets/jsp.
i too opted for similar project.but the boom has all gone now.
the real thing worrying me is that i will passout my degree in june 2001 and be out for hunting job.
but the project i did seems to be having no value.
i have used java,servlets,jdbc,oracle,html,javascript .
but these are all outdated except oracle.
now as a fresher everyone will stress on the project.
i want to know is this project useless??
its of no use since there is no market for java atleast for the freshers like me.
what do i do for getting a good start?
i have knowledge of c,c++ but was very much intrested in java.
is their good scope for freshers for career in java??
please guide sachin

Sachin Dabhade:
Your e-mail sounds like one of the "Java is Dead" topics that we've discussed before on this forum.
Realize a few things:
1. Your CS-Degree was NOT a waste of your time. It will benefit your quality of living for the rest of your life.
2. Java is not dead. Yes, the IT market is slow right now - at least here in the USA. But it is slow across the whole spectrum - not just Java. Things are, however, picking up.
3. Your project will be invaluable in your job seach. Clean it up, make it presentation quality - this includes the documentation. Writes notes down on your design issues, the problems you encountered, enhancements you would like to make.
Perhaps even implement some of the enhancements.
4. JSP / EJB / Servelets ARE NOT DEAD - PERIOD!!! You made the right choice in doing this project.
5. Use the project to develop your interview stories. You are going to get hit up with questions like: " Tell me about a project you worked on." "Tell me about the difficulties you encountered" "How would you go about it differently" "Where could you improve on the project". Now you have something to relate to the IT industry.
6. Use the project to grab an internship.
7. Start looking for employment.
