Just out of interest, I know that in the UK and US, IT is suffering from the recession, could some of the US Javaranchers out there (Thomas?) clarify on how Java is faring against other languages such as C++ and VB?
A quick search on www.jobserve.com reveals that in the Edinburgh (Scotland) area, there is a slightly higher demand of Java over C++ and VB, with this gap widening down in London. This would imply, roughly, that Java is faring better in the downturn than other languages.
How does this compare with the US and India?

Mark's observation holds true for Ireland too. In Dublin and around, more than half of the total job postings are related to Java. Rest of the posts are either for C++, Oracle, Unix related skills or expertize in specific tools, like a X tool, Y server etc.
Still finding a suitable Java job is as difficult as anywhere else. I feel its because of the big number of Java Programmers around. Compitition isn't that tough for C++ or even for .NET
Couple of months before there was a positive wakening in Indian IT sector, which is constantly getting some consolation because of MNC IT giants relocating its work to different parts of India.
It would be really interesting to know it is for Java, in the US and India at present.

There are substantially more c/c++ jobs than java jobs on dice.com for San Francisco.

I find Oracle and I2 recruting here in large numbers. The only difference is that they want people with exp >= 3 years. Anyways knowing just Java does not help anymore. Tools like Ant, JUnit , Cactus and XML technologies is also needed.

I would think that .Net might be the way to go as it is a newer market and there is a smaller pool of qualified applicants for .Net positions.
