Hi,

I have 2 years of experince in JSP and know basics of Java. (But I am not a core java person.) At present I am looking for new job.
Since I am not a core java person,I am nervous to face the inteviwes fearing I will be asked Java questions.

I would like to know what are the chances of me getting job as JSP developer compared to as a JAVA developer.

Kindly let me know if projecting my self as person with JSP experince will be disdvantage?. What chances I have to get interview calls/ or getting selected from companies who are into java technology.

No one can answer your question without mentioning WHERE you are and WHERE you are looking for a job.

USA? India? Russia? South Africa???

I don't know about other countries, but if you're in the U.S, I'd say your chances of getting a Java development job is very low. Even more so if you require H-1B sponsorship.

Hi Soumya,

Let me be frank with you. As a JSP developer your chances of getting job is very very very less. JSP is derived from Java so you need to know Java very well. In none of projects just using JSPs. Most of the projects following MVC architecture that means the projects uses JSP as presentation, Servelets(Java) as Controller and JavaBeans(Java) as Model and some utility classes(Java). So just knowing JSP your chances of getting job is very less. Now days companies looking for EJBs also but its not compulsory.

Let me know if you need more info in this regard.

Regards
Jagdish

Hi Jagadish,

Thanks for the frank answer..!
I am not sure as a JSP developer what all I should be knowing. !! But with your response..I felt i know JAVA to some extent. So that is one comfort thing!!

But...I have some anxities and doubts. Could you please clarify them. Before that let me brief more on my Java ability...

I have worked on applications with both MVC1 and MVC2 architecture, with features exclusively -emails with attachments, uploaidng utilities, JDBC and oralce/ sql.

I learnt what is necessary to know while working on these projects.
But java is such vast subject..
- with 2 years of experince and exposure and working knowledge with above Java features, what kind of interview questions I might get.
- how I should present my profile in CV.!
- In utilities what all i should be knowing.

Kindly let me know.
Thanks in advance

Regards
Soumya

Hi Soumya,

If you had worked with JSP definitely you might have some idea about Java. Mostly the interviews will be on the folloing concepts:

OOPS, Core Java(java.lang, java.util), JDBC, Servlets, JSP and remaining depends on ur projects. You can refer www.jguru.com faqs for some of interview questions.

Do you need more details?

Jagdish

Hi Soumya

I guess you will be having min knowledge of Java as you worked in JSPs. So you can start applying for jobs. But same time try to brushup your java knowledge too. You can go thru Thinking in Java, which very good book to start up. If you attend 2 int you will know what they are asking in interview. There are lot of openings coming up for java so hurry up. Which city do u live? If you are in blore or chennai chances of getting job is more brighter.

Regards
Jagdish

Hi

No one will be all rounder in all areas. So you start applying jobs with your current resume. If you dont get interview calls make changes and apply jobs. Dont compare your skills with others. All projects dont need skills in all areas. As you are in bangalore your chances of getting job is very bright.

Regards
Jagdish
