It is my observation that many of us JAVA developers are so adamant on staying with JAVA we fail to look at other options. Microsoft Jobs There are 268 jobs available at Microsoft in software development alone. Do take a look and hey!! you might land yourself a job there.

Hi Mark, You're right! Sorry to all ranchers and those banana countries and third world for my mistake when reading an article unrelated to my boring teleconference with client and customer last night.
All: - Just wanted to respond to Java Developers limiting themselves to Java jobs. - My validation for this, stems from the committment one needs in this field to become a competant J2EE programmer. I am not talking about writing a few lines of code. I am talking about the BIG picture (total lifecycle) from documentation, planning, design, coding, testing, and re-testing, etc. - My current project involved me writing over a few thousand lines of code (I never counted). Plus attending meetings, writing documentation that both management and technical folks could understand, learning the lending business, and continuing my J2EE studies. I forgot to mention the design part as well. System is built on-top of existing Java code - so I had to learn that as well. I will also be proving 3rd tier production support for this application - so now I have to be able to relate my knowledge of system to non-technoical people. - In addition to current project. I am studying web-services as our next project will be XML/SOAP based.
----- - It takes (in my opinion) an additional 2 or 3 years of study (past the degree level), to become somewhat proficient in all the J2EE technologies, along with XML, and a relational database. - I can (so could most of you with college degrees in IT field), get a job in the IT field (probably doing 3rd level desktop support). - It's my investiment in the J2EE arena that "forces" me to seek employment in a J2EE environment. Fortunately, I am employed. But the point holds. John Coxey (firstname.lastname@example.org)
