This is not to discourage you. I'm working in Bangalore. I can't comment on other cities. but Java jobs in b'lore have completely dried up. I guess anyone here from b'lore w'd agree with me.
There is some requirement for c++/networking related skills. I w'd ask you to try @ Oracle, India (Blore) though. I clearly remeber having seen some ads from them.
Keep working though.
good luck,
karthik.

There are millions of java developers out there, so by no means it's dying!. It's stupid to say that MS w'd kick out java with C#. There's hardly any work in the web domain so java will lie low till then. Things s'd be fine once the web maret picks up.
So i guess this is not same as what IE did to Netscape. Even our company has been facing problems getting web related projects. We work exclusively on java related stuff. I'm rather lucky to be workign on a project at the moment.
There has been a couple of lay offs (Bangalore) but it's nothign when compared to what happens in the US.
There are better emotional ties (employer-employee) in this part of the world i guess :-) but the extent to which they can sustain
this kind of a feeling depends on the timeframe within which they can unearth more projects.
There are tons of java guys working on internal projects in most of the companies. I don't see any need for freshers at the moment. Most of the companies (like infosys!) have asked college grads to join late(october). It's not that things have stopped but there are "enough" java guys already.
Oracle stuff was a big surprise as i saw a requirement for 1+ exp guys in java.
Lucent after dumping people in the US is recruting here!..No java /ASP / web related stuff for that matter!.
Sun, Texas Inst are doing selective recruting but it's all in the field of VLSI/ ASIC. HP too is looking for people (again VOIP, Wireless networking).
"At the moment" if ur looking to enter IT industry fresh, then Java certainly is NOT the way to go.( atleast this is the scene in Bangalore). I guess no other city can boast of as many IT companies as blore, (in India) so this s'd sum up the situation well. But i agree that it's difficult to acquire VLSI/ ASIC skills if ur'nt a EE major. But this is the truth.
Work on it (java) , and hope that it w'd help you later when the market picks up. A SCJP / SCJD looks good on the resume anyway.
At the moment C,C++, UNIX skills (as pointed out earlier wireless n/wking) are in demand.
I guess this is the best time for fresh college grads to continue with their education! do a MS / Mtech.
I have a couple of I20s from US schools and i plan to leave this FALL.
just my 2 cents worth
karthik.

There is nothing like the school of hard knocks...
School is fine but you are putting things off...
Why did you go to school in the 1st place...
Get a jobs get a life... & Stay in School...
In other words do BOTH!
Do not sell your self short...
You will have to hussle... more that you ever did playing sports...
If you apply your self ... it will pay off...
10 yrs ago i had to make a choice between and MBA in Hight-tech
or open my own business... I opened my own business.
Today. I'm still working while most of my pears with advanced degress are not... they might have made more last year but they are mostly on the employment line today...
4 our of 5 of my peers are our of work here in the USA...
Job market is flat!
Beg borrow and/or steal a job... if is is your 1st. one...
I did... and i was paid 1/2 of what i was worth.
P.S. i work more that one job at a time.
Very busy... Have to go back to work now...
Hope my quick thought make sence...
