I am Student of BS with Software Majors with the past 4 months i am bit in chaos that what will be the future of mine, because i think i did lot of java in my BS lot more than two years but there is no local market of java in my country. I know lot of concepts of OOP and i have a good gril on C++ as well.My future plan is do masters in SE.
Well i want advice that what should i do so that when i am in industry i will Excel because its 50 50 chance according to my thinking.

I am a recruiter for a software consulting firm in Chicago.
It's very hard to chase technologies and to predict the
future. At this point the Java market feels stronger to
me than the Microsoft market. However, I do think that there
will be a major resurgence in Microsoft interest as we
move into 2002.
With that said, though, pick one and concern yourself with
becoming very strong in OOAD concepts and database
technologies. In other words, spend a lot of time on the
transferable skills.

well i agree with you SCOTT that stick to single gun that is right but there will be possibility that when you make yourself professional in that gun then if that gun is obsolete by microsoft then i think so for the time being you find yours self in big headache?
AM i right, honestly i dont like Microsft technolgies but i think so its requirement or not?
THanks in advance

I have picked Java, I am really fond of Java and I am really fond of Solaris. So if Windoze beats Java, then I get beaten along with it.

There are several advantages to the Java side. Microsoft is still sketchy on the Enterprise side. There are some various "black claims" as to their scalability but nothing has really been demonstrated to the acceptance of the software community.
Secondly, there has been a great deal of worldwide participation in developing free resources and addendums to the Java platform (you could call Java Ranch an example of this).
Finally, if you consider Microsoft vs. J2EE, they don't offer a single solution, i.e. there is no container. If you want transactions, you need to go buy MTS, etc. Their answer seems fragmented to me at this time.
Also, it's important to recognize that Microsoft has now included Java in .NET with J#. To me this means even they are admitting that Java is here to stay.

You can't be all things to all people. I don't see major harm in picking a favorite technology or platform and running with it. I work with people who get paid to program on the IBM Mainframe. 10 years ago most people would have predicted the death of mainframes before 2001.

First of all , it is not easy to get a good projects. Secondly it is not even easy to get internships . SO what do you do? ..... the best thing is to prepare for certifications .

Hi
yes i totally agree that itsnot easy to get some good projects and internships as well but there is some more chance of getting projects or internships if u certified. I think so all of us agree on that? but the problem will arise that you are doing java technologies and some how Microsoft beat Java in a race then all java players in no mens land. How young guys think of their own & start doing virtual projects?
ANY IDEA???
Second how u predict in percentage Microsoft Technolgies and java Technologies.
Thanks
