Hi I am a fresh grad, I have the opportunity to start my career in J2ME.
To be honest i am more interested in J2EE.

Would gaining experience in J2ME help me to enter for a J2EE role?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Sam,

Welcome to JavaRanch. Your display name is, unfortunately, not allowed by our naming policy. I appreciate that you are well within the spirit of the policy, and the extra information is innoculus. However, our conern is that it opens the door for less well-behaved people, e.g. "Bill Smith JavaGod", which would undermine the intention of the policy. Please remove the UK from your display name. The naming policy can be found at http://www.javaranch.com/name.jsp

Hi !

The client side and server side are tightly coupled. Many companies like to have their J2EE developers working on the J2ME front ends. So you might get an opportunity to do the server side as well.

Apart from this, if you are a fresh graduate grab the job. There is not much competition in this field and no one is going to ask for a J2ME developer with 5 years of experience.

There might not be lot of business for companies in this sector right now but I think there are opportunities for developers.

I'd say go get the job and keep on looking for something that you really like to do.

Take a look at the following link as well
