"Bik:,
You need to cange your name. Please read the rules.

J2EE market in the US- understand that typically in the US software developers are < 40. If you are real young and can find a sponsorer, go for it. I do have to say it is extremely difficult to have a career path of any kind in software.

I am not sure I understnd your second message.

Hi Prema,
Thanks for the prompt reply. I am still not clear about answer you have provided to me. I am working on J2EE platform since 2000. Now i am going to US on H1 in coming month. So, i would like to know that how much J2EE expereinced people are in demand in US. whats is the ratio of demand and supply of J2EE guys over there? i hope you understand me...

Regards,
Bikram

There seem to be a lot of J2EE people where I live (Minnesota). However, it is still difficult to find skilled peogrammers with the right kind of background. I have not heard of any company sponsoring some one for a J2EE job from another country but I have seen some engineers getting a job and paying for the H1B legal process on their own. They negotiated with the company before they took the job. If you don't need a visa, ignore what I said. While the market is not as great as it used to be, experienced people are still finding jobs. Salaries/perks are not as good as they used to be.
